Upcoming Broadway Shows

| 1 Comment
Steve on Broadway has been doing a great job keeping up to date a list of Broadway Shows that are confirmed for 2010-2011:

Currently, there are 23 plays, musicals and special theatrical events that have confirmed their venue and schedules for the 2010-11 Theatrical Season.

While it's entirely possible that more than one of the following plays or musicals that have already been confirmed for the 2010-11 Theatrical Season may ultimately never materialize, here's the early list of what is currently scheduled to open:
Full list here.

As well as the list of maybes.

Sometimes I lie to you

And sometimes I just sound like I'm lying to you:

Lee Hall and Elton John ("Billy Elliot") are to re-team for a tuner version of George Orwell's 1945 novella "Animal Farm."

Hall has been working on adapting the darkly comic satire on Stalinism for some time and plans to have lyrics by the fall to show John.

I feel like I saw this sketch on Mad TV or something.  "Animal Farm By Elton John", starring Elton as Snowball, with the big song and dance number "Four legs good, two legs bad".

Whatever it is you're imagining, it couldn't possibly not be worse.

Angels in Poster Form

The New York Times reports that a design has been chosen for the new Angels in America poster at the Signature this fall.  This is what it looks like:

I don't know.  Something about it loses the abstractness that I like about the original.  What could improve it.  Hmm...

Spain is Different

Found in Barcelona during my honeymoon. 

Since it's partially obscured, I'll clarify: In huge letters it says "El Musical 80's", which sounds like Spanish I would have spoken, and in smaller letters it says "Flash Dance".

Apparently the Brits taste for any-movie-turned-into-a-musical is getting hungrier and hungrier.
