I was looking through some old forum posts seeing if there was a place anybody was really talking about regional productions, but it didn’t look like there was any. So I thought I’d start one here.
I figured this thread could be used to talk about regional productions that we have either seen or plan to. We could also use it to talk about some exciting news regarding regional productions going on somewhere out in the country. For example, it was just announced that Alec Baldwin & Kelli O’Hara will be performing A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters for the Westport County Playhouse’s spring gala on April 12th…

Tony nominee Michael Arden will direct a production of Annie at the Hollywood Bowl this summer. http://www.playbill.com/article/michael-arden-will-direct-annie-at-the-hollywood-bowlFebruary 21, 2018 at 12:46 pm #1202498301
Interesting choice. Arden has so far proven to be successful at taking on contemporary musicals (Spring Awakening, Once on This Island). Though the classic musicals he’s taken on to date (My Fair Lady, Merrily We Roll Along), they haven’t been as talked about.February 26, 2018 at 1:52 pm #1202501359

All Out Of Love, a new musical incorporating the songs of Air Supply, will premiere on October 18 at Newport Performing Arts Theater in Manila. http://www.playbill.com/article/all-out-of-love-new-air-supply-musical-will-debut-in-manilaMarch 2, 2018 at 8:54 am #1202504094
^^That sounds like a gag on The Simpsons.
Is there anything more unnecessary than an Air Supply jukebox musical?
