Our Artistic Team Responds to Your Suggestions:

Barnum
Submitted by Ellen
“A wonderful musical with a great Cy Coleman score. The question we wonder about: Who can follow in the indomitable footsteps of Tony-winner Jim Dale in the title role?”
 
Candide
Submitted by Stephen
“It does seem like it might be time to see this one again, especially with the Leonard Bernstein centennial coming up in 2018. The score is notoriously challenging, but worth the effort.”
 
City of Angels
Submitted by Mindy
"A great suggestion, if only the rights weren’t tied up! It recently had a successful revival at the Donmar Warehouse in London. Perhaps that production will make its way across the Atlantic?”
 
Grand Hotel
Submitted by Brandon
“The original production by Tommy Tune made the choreography and overall vision as much a part of the piece’s success as the content itself. So who would be the right artist to take on that legacy and come up with a fresh way of looking at this material?”
 
Hello, Dolly!
Submitted by Bruce
“This musical is meant for a commercial revival, but someday we'd love to do the play it’s based on, Thornton Wilder’s The Matchmaker.
 
Paint Your Wagon
Submitted by Michael
“The recent Encores! version of this show was the right way to see it. Hearing the score again was wonderful, but we're not sure that a full production is what it needs. That said, we'll certainly be listening to the cast recording.”
 
Ragtime
Submitted by Hunter
“It’s a fantastic show, but having been revived already in 2010, we think it needs to wait several more years to come back to New York anew.”
 
The Robber Bridegroom
Submitted by Linda
“This irreverent piece is not nearly as well-known as it should be. We'd love to bring it back. There are so many great roles for comedic actor-singers. It’s impossible to not have a good time watching this show.”
 
Merrily We Roll Along
Submitted by Tony
“We're always at the ready when an opportunity to work on a Sondheim piece comes along. Steve is a true master, and this is one of his shows that is notoriously tough to get right. Sounds like a good challenge.”
 
Titanic
Submitted by Brian
“We love the score from Maury Yeston, who certainly has a history with Roundabout. But other producers are already at work on bringing this one back to New York. We hope they succeed!”
 
Mame
Submitted by Allison
“A great show that is overdue for revival. Again, who would you cast in those iconic leading roles? It’s hard to follow Angela Lansbury and Bea Arthur!”
