Not very likely, since there was a successful revival of GUYS & DOLLS on Broadway about 10 years ago.

I agree with Sant -

The revival was too recent for another run on Broadway... and there are many musicals now in rotation for a revival that haven't been in awhile, like THE WIZ, MAME or BYE BYE BIRDIE.

Guys and Dolls - tickets are scarce with most dates sold out, you'll probaly have to queue for returns and standing room from about 6 or 7am

Les Mis - sometimes available at tkts in Leicester Square for 35% off evening performances and half price for Wednesday matinees.

I sincerely hope not. G & D is one of a handful of shows that here in the US producers always pounce on when thinking of musical revivals. Enough already with reviving this show. There are many more musicals that have not seen a major revival since they opened originally that are far more interesting such as:

Lil Abner
Bye Bye Birdie
Evita
Golden Boy
Irma La Douce
Silk Stockings

Not to mention the failed musicals that deserve another life

Sherry
Ben Franklin In Paris
I Had Ball
Hallelujah Baby
High Spirits

If someone mentions reviving Peter Pan again I shall beat myself to death with a polo mallet

I have been away on vacation but the prayers of my wife & I are with the victims of the terrorist attacks & their loved ones & families
