So far...
And new this Spring?
Each year theatre snobs like to talk about "the decline of Broadway". I tend to disagree actually; I was never around "when it was good".
But this year, you can tell the investors all have tighter purse-strings. And it'll continue to stay that way.

So until consumer confidence bounces back, it's Dolly Parton In Manhattan, Kung Fu, and other than that it may become 1999 all over again--that is, lots and lots of safe revivals...

I dunno, Billy Elliot isn't technically a revival and it's doing really well. And...um...Shrek isn't a revival, but I'd rather ignore that abomination, even though Suttn and Brian are in it.
Vanities actually cancelled its Broadway run.
Sale of Two Titties? Are we talking about Brandi Burkhardt?
