As it is May tomorrow, I am sure this decision is either made or in the process of being made.

Does anyone know what their musical is this year?

thanks,

ST

Checking back they announced Merrily along with the previous 2 shows at the end of March. So I guess we should hear something soon.

They haven't done a musical every year at Christmas - it was The Invisible Man a few years ago.

I'd love to see them to do Company but I imagine they don't want to do back to back Sondheim,

I would imagine it will be a musical as their last Christmas play was as well received. Musicals are more of a crowd pleaser

I would love to see a chamber version of Light in the Piazza or Candide at the Chocolate Factory or Pal Joey or anything by Kander and Ebb .... but that’s just my wish list  :)

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

Ah! Do we think we'll have three musicals in one year, then?
