July 2010 Archives
Currently, there are 23 plays, musicals and special theatrical events that have confirmed their venue and schedules for the 2010-11 Theatrical Season.Full list here.
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:
As well as the list of maybes.
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.
Ah, much better.
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.
