Something happened to this thread yesterday when I tried to update it, so here’s a second try. Shows for the 2016-17 season that have announced start dates and a theater:
Cirque du Soleil’s first Broadway venture
Act of God
Sean Hayes steps into the role Jim Parsons did last summer
Motown the Musical
Previews begin 7/12/16; opening TBD
In case you missed it or weren’t born the first 18 years it played
Samuel J. Friedman
MTC pics same opening date as Roundabout production
The Cherry Orchard
Busy October for Roundabout
Great cast in this revival, including Christian Borle (if he doesn’t drop out due to his Charlie commitment in the spring), Andrew Rannells and Stephanie J. Block. And they better include “I’m Breaking Down” on the cast recording this time.
Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Janet McTeer and Liev Schreiber in the fancy-dress French soap opera
Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
Josh Groban debuts on Broadway
The Divine Miss M and Niles Crane co-star in the 1964 blockbuster. Supposedly Bette will have a limited performance schedule (5-6 shows a week). Wonder who will be her alternate and how many thousands of dollars each ticket will cost?
Among shows planning to come in this season, but so far missing an opening date and/or a theater: The Front Page (great cast), Anastasia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Several other things are planned for the season, but so far are speculative as to time period even though some big names are attached.
