It just has to be revived soon. Please, Broadway gods?

Those were all flops!

Was that a joke, or did you really like all of those shows?

I like a lot of those, some I could care less about but whatever. I need Drowsy back, it was amazing. I saw a Center Stage production in Baltimore of Little Night Music and it was very good. I think Dream Girls would do very well.

I heard something about "Dreamgirls" doing a tryout in Seoul, South Korea in 2009, and then doing a 10 city tour in the US in 2010, with a Broadway production in 2010.

"The Scarlet Pimpernel." I saw it on tour and absolutely loved it. I know it didn't do so well on Broadway, but I wish it could have another chance.

"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."

Drowsy and Ragtime need to be brought back. No, No, Nanette needs to transfer.

Both parts of Angels In America!!!!

And I'd love to see a revival of Carrie.

It would make my life to see these 2 (3?) shows live on Broadway.

Ragtime, Cabaret, Into the Woods. No one would take me seriously if I mentioned Pirate Queen, but I miss the pretty dancing and the music. re: Shows that should be (back) on Broadway

And someone needs to do something with Glockner von Notre Dame exactly as it was in the German production...only in English. I know there are threads on this already, but it needs to be revived in some capacity whether on Broadway or on tour or even in the West End. I don't want them to tamper with it either.
