    I think The Elephant Man revival with Bradley Cooper is also confirmed to open Nov. 13, though the last I heard the theatre hasn’t been announced.

    There are a few productions I was waiting on, Elephant Man being one of them. As the saying goes: “Everything is coming to Broadway until it comes to Broadway”. They did announce a target date for that production, but no theatre is announced or contracts out as of now. There are many shows that might happen that I was waitng for more concrete info on so I have to do less editing than last year. 

    Productions yet to be added include: The Elephant Man, The King and I (no dates or director yet), It’s Only a Play, Fun Home, Titanic and Honeymoon in Vegas.

    There’s also a new rumor that Miss Saigon is hoping to come back (transfer of the West End production). And supposedly Diner (Sheryl Crow) will try again for this season.

    So three of these stood out big time for me:
    1)The Real Thing: This sounds awesome.
    2)On the Twentith Century
    3)Holler if Ya Hear Me: Something tells me this is going to be either really good or really bad.

    What’s the status regarding The Sunshine Boys with Danny DeVito? And who is set to star with him?

    And my most anticipated show of next season has officially set casting and dates! A Delicate Balance with the Broadway return of Glenn close (I worship at the church of Glenn Close).  I had heard they would take the Golden after Mothers and Sons left, but I didnt know if someone would beat them to it.

    Ive updated the list, and put Elephant Man in there too.

    I’m assuming Elephant Man only has Bradley Cooper for a limited time–is it a limited engagement, or are they going open-ended and hoping to recast?

    With that kind of star its almost guaranteed to be a limited run. Thats generally the model being used for most Broadway plays these days.  His availability was the reason it didnt come together in time for this past season. The Shubert Organization is said to put it in one of their theatres this fall. A Delicate Balance will take the Golden. They could put Elephant Man in the vacated Booth Theatre (Velocity of Autumn), or wait till The Realistic Joenses finishes its run at the Lyceum.  My guess is that the revival of You Cant Take it with you will aim for the Booth so as not to have the theatre vacant for so long, and Elephant Man will find a home at the Lyceum.

    I’d guess the Lyceum too because it seats about 150 more than the Booth (though I love the Booth). I think Cooper will probably be a big draw in this role, especially if it’s as well-reviewed as in its earlier run, and can sell a larger house.

    Thanks for compiling all of those dates Sam – I’m a sucker for lists like those. Personally cannot wait for A Delicate Balance.

    Per a casting notice I just received: It seems the rumored production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is indeed officially happening this season. The casting notice says Pseudolus and Erronius have both been cast. James Corden is set to star, not sure who theyve booked for Erronius though. Alex timbers is listed as director with Alex Gemignangi as music director. Rehearsals start (approximately) this January for a target mid March opening.

    Sigh. Since it seems we must have a Sondheim revival at least every other season, I wish someone would do a thoughtful production of Pacific Overtures. Something better than that mess that was at Studio 54 several seasons back. But since it’s unlikely to be commercially viable, I guess we’d need someone looking for a tax write-off.

    I think Pacific Overtures (like many of Sondheim’s musicals, unfortunately) is seen as a hard sell.  It doesnt have name recognition, which would suggest to producers that you need an above the title star to bring people in. And sadly there are relatively few Asian actors who are “star names” (who can sing Sondheim 8 shows a week no less). But his work isnt going anywhere, so Im sure a director will come up with a great concept for it and we’ll see a good revival someday.

    In the meantime, I think Corden is perfect casting for Forum. So at the very least he should be quite entertaining.
