A Quick Stage Addiction Update

Just had a well-connected source spill two secrets I'm sure you'll be hearing more about tomorrow. First: Glory Days will not be able to open in time for Tony consideration, unless something magical and unexpected occurs. (Should open in June, however.) Second: A Tale of Two Cities, which has been kicking around for at least two years, will be the next musical at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. It will open probably in August...or as soon as it can once Curtains closes there on June 29th.

ModFab, Interesting about Glory Days, especially considering that tickets are still on pre-sale for performances beginning April 22 with a May 6 opening.

So it's curtains for Curtains? I hadn't heard. Maybe I'll actually see it if it's going. . .

ModFab,

Playbill is now confirming what I sent you a little earlier:

"The plan to move the well-reviewed coming-of-age pop musical Glory Days to Broadway is now official: The show about four young men reuniting a year after high school will begin previews at Circle in the Square April 22, toward a May 6 opening."

Cheers! Steve

Yeah, I saw these this morning. I called my source, and he said that he's sticking with his story...although he did backpedal a bit and say (perhaps rightly) that even if it found a way to re-cast and open in six weeks, it would amount to fiscal suicide. But I admire the gumption of the producers who are willing to say, even to Playbill, that they can get it together in time. (No doubt this is part of the reason they beat out Title of Show and 13...their willingness to put it together at world-record speed.)

Just read in the Times (so probably old news to you) that one of the co-authors of Glory Days is in the ensemble of Cry-Baby. I find that exceedingly weird, don't know why.
