I’ll have to see Camelot and Dancin’. I’m curious as to how often a musical revival outlasted the original. I know Candide and Chicago did.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 10, 2023 at 6:57 pm #1205232990
Here’s some trivia regarding each of this year’s Broadway musical revivals, mainly in how some of them are connected:
1776 featured Carolee Carmello, who starred in the original production of Parade.
Camelot is being presented by Lincoln Center Theater, which also presented the original production of Parade.
Camelot and Into the Woods both have/had Phillipa Soo in prominent roles. Not to mention that Jordan Donica, who’s playing Lancelot in the former, was in City Center’s production of the latter as Rapunzal’s Prince.
Dancin’ is a revue created by Bob Fosse. His work would later serve as the basis for another revue titled Fosse, which beat Parade for Best Musical at the 1999 Tonys.
The revivals of Into the Woods and Parade in contention both started out at New York City Center.
Into the Woods and Sweeney Todd both have music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. He also was actually set to do Parade, but later dropped out to work on something else.
The original productions of Parade and Sweeney Todd were both directed by Hal Prince. Not to mention that Gatan Matarazzo, who’s playing Tobias in the latter, was in City Center’s production of the former.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 10, 2023 at 9:47 pm #1205234135
I checked the Oliviers and for & Juliet, the actress playing Anne Hathaway was in the supporting category. So it seems like Betsy Wolfe has a shot there, along with Adrianna Hicks, though Bonnie Milligan will probably win unless someone from Bad Cinderella, Shucked or New York, New York outshines her. I figure after &J, KA and SLIH NY,NY will get the fourth slot. I’ll just have to wait and see how Shucked compares. If Sing Street opens this season it would be a contender.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 11, 2023 at 7:13 am #1205235183
Now we need to add Parade to the list, as well as The Thanksgiving Play, since we have an opening date of April 20: https://audiencerewards.com/shows/thanksgiving-playReplyCopy URLJanuary 11, 2023 at 7:23 am #1205235408

As I keep saying, no one knows how New York, New York will fare yet. Wait until it starts performances first before declaring if it’s a nominee. I also think Adrianna Hicks will be going lead for Some Like It Hot. Marilyn Monroe won a Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical Golden Globe for that part in the original movie and many felt was robbed of a Best Actress Oscar nod.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 11, 2023 at 10:41 am #1205236888

Right now we need the opening date for Room, also we’re still uncertain about the status of Art and Sing Street, the latter of which we’ve awaited since before COVID. Since both are said to come to Shubert houses, the James Earl Jones and Lyceum are available, so Room will likely play at Circle in the Square. And then every Broadway house will be occupied, except the Palace and Majestic, both of which will be undergoing renovations.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 16, 2023 at 8:05 pm #1205248817
I looked at the Broadway Theaters page on Wikipedia and Sing Street wasn’t included. Does that mean it’s not coming to Broadway after all?ReplyCopy URLJanuary 17, 2023 at 6:11 am #1205249102
No announcement had been made regarding the status of that show. As of now, I don’t think anyone should expect Sing Street to come to Broadway soon unless we hear otherwise.ReplyCopy URLJanuary 17, 2023 at 7:47 am #1205249253

Looks like Sing Street is out of the picture, at least for now. Still that makes nine candidates for Best Musical, which means five nominees. Kimberly Akimbo has it locked, and SLIH and &J have a strong chance, so now we have to guess if Bad Cinderella, New York, New York or Shucked will be left out. I’m not too sure about Shucked, considering its lack of name recognition and subject matter.
Also, the spoof musical The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) had an R&H parody called Corn!, so to have an actual musical about corn seems like self-parody.ReplyCopy URLNot now
