Do you think they'll do it? I mean how hard can it be to tour it? It could be very profitable in my opinion.


Any thoughts?

Do you honestly think a show that ran for one performance is going to tour?
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

And they can truthfully say "Direct from Broadway".

Because it completely bombed. The only way you'd get tour audiences to see a show they haven't heard of is with award bragging rights (which they didn't win) or really great pull quotes (which would be challenging to come by). Plus, few major touring houses would WANT to book the show. There you go. And it's "3," not "E."

ucjrdude902...it's because they have NO MONEY!!!!!!!!

Do you have any clue how much it costs to run a show, especially on tour?

Maybe there might be a future for it in high schools or community theater but even that's unlikely.

I would book it in my theatre only if I could get it in rotating rep with In My Life. Then it MIGHT stand a chance.
PEACE.

I don't see how this will have a life in high schools. What administration will let a director do a show with a cast of four?

They could triple the cast! LOL!!

Is this thread a joke?

This reminds me of those "PATTI LUPONE TO BE FINAL MIMI IN RENT" threads or something...

They don't have any money. The show is trash. It's a one performance flop. They're even talking about it in the Australia press.

This thread is most certainly not a joke!
All of the aforementioned first national tour destinations have been confirmed by ABC, CBS, NBC and KFC (The offical caterer for Glory Days: The Tour!)

If you need a middle-aged, slightly balding Miss Nancy, I have experience in the genre and will travel.

"I hear it's to play all the big venues inlcuding the Sharecropper's Playhouse in Tutwiler, Mississippi."

That might be the the funniest thing I've heard all week. Well, not heard, really, but you get my drift.

At least Brooklyn had a somewhat respectable run before it toured, and small tour at that.

This is just stupid.

Not likely to tour but it is worth noting that Broadway Across America was one of the producers of the Broadway production.
