An overbooked 08/09 season#1
Posted: 3/26/08 at 7:59pm
I'm confused... Next season seems quite crowded, what shows are for sure opening, and what shows are rumored without a theatre solidified? 2008/2009 season seems very full...


Confirmed:
godspell
equus
Tale of 2 cities
billy elliot
country girl
Boeing-Boeing
shrek
vanities

Rumored:
west side story
dancin'
9 to 5
enchanted
the wiz
bye bye birdie
anything goes

Have I missed anything?

The Country Girl and Boeing Boeing are this season, and both have theaters confirmed.

Shrek has the Broadway, Tale of Two Cities has the Hirschfield, and Equus has the Broadhurst.

Country Girl begins previews a week from tomorrow and opens April 27. Boeing-Boeing begins previews April 19 and opens May 4. They're considered part of this season.

9-to-5 starts over the summer at the Amhanson.
Godspell will take a Shubert Theater and open over the summer.
Two Cities starts previews in August, to open in September, at the Hirschfeld.
Billy Eliot starts in September at the Imperial.
Shrek starts in November at the Broadway.
Equus starts in September at the Broadhurst.
West Side Story opens in Spring 09, following a tryout in Dec. 08
Dancin' starts in mid-09 at Studio 54.

Enchanted is not even close to a rumor.
The Wiz is postponed, now that Des is the director of the Stratford Festival.
Birdie isn't happening.
Anything Goes will happen once the Miller opens. Maybe.

Enchanted? As in the movie musical which came onto DVD this past Tuesday starring Amy Adams? As a STAGE musical?

Did you make that up?
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

I'm thinking that Enchanted might actually be Ever After, which has been talked about since 2005.

clearly, if disney were to do thier next musical NEXT season, it would obviusly be Hunchback, considerring that it's been the only one with rumors spreading from both Shwatrz and Menken. Otherwise, newsies. Of course there's always the possibility of High School Musical moving into the nederlander, making it an interesting year, with HSM3 and the tour of HSM2, plus the ice tour, AND HSM on Broadway.

Pal Joey is December, '08 at Studio 54.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

I thought Phantom sequel and Spiderman were rumored for two seasons from now...

Spiderman definitely isn't next season...its 09-10.

Don't forget Harry Connick Jr and Kathleen Marshall's revival of "Oh, Kay!" which will play under a different name.
