The Roundabout Formula

Hey kids,

Today I'm going to show you how to create a Roundabout Revival! Ready?

STEP 1: Take an old, aging, dated show. The kind you couldn't revive while still being taken seriously.
Examples: Pajama Game, The Apple Tree, 110 in the Shade
.
STEP 2: Find a big star. It could be a big Theatre star, a big Tony winner, a Television star or a well-known recording artist.
Examples: Harry Connick Jr., Chenoweth, Audra McDonald.

STEP 3: Slap together and bake half-way.
STEP 4:
Put on Broadway for a limited run. Hope it extends indefinitely so that you have something to fill up your third Broadway theater.
