Yes! Next to Normal!!! Preferably with Alice Ripley if her voice is back as it was destroyed by the end of her broadway run! If not her then Marin Mazzie!

I heard a clip of her singing from a few months back - her voice just isn't the same anymore, it was quite sad to hear.

Pippin was on at the Menier Chocolate Factory a couple of years ago and sold terribly, so much so there was a fairly standard offer for £10/£15 best available tickets. The Broadway production might well do a lot better though, but I doubt anyone is going to take that risk.

Pippin was never a hit over here like it was on Broadway, the first London production only ran for 85 performances, it would nice if it could come over but I doubt it will.

Bombshell would be wonderful to see (btw, is Smash season two around in UK yet?).
Wonderland has some great songs, I think. Maybe it could be resurrected from the flop on Broadway?
My favourite musical that I've not seen on stage is Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame.

i dont think tony awards matter if jo public dont have anyother interest in seeing it. plenty of tony winners have flopped

smash season 2 starts july on sky atlantic (although i had also read a rumour it was going to sky living, either way its expected in july)

id love Aida to come, as much as i live alexia im not sure i see her as aida. louise dearman and ramin karimloo could be great choices if it were to open soon

Unlikely. Wildhorn, for some reason, never brings anything to the UK other than Jekyll and Hyde. We'll more than likely see an improved version in Germany, Austria or Switzerland in a few years that is hugely successful (like with all other Wildhorn musicals!) but I doubt we'll ever get it in the UK.
