Hellz yeah, I would see ANY ONE of these.
Playbill has announced an amazing lineup of plays and musicals coming soon to Broadway including Pretty Woman the Musical, Tootsie the Musical, Bryan Cranston in Network and (most intriguingly) an all-female Glengarry Glen Ross…
Following a world premiere in Chicago earlier this year, Pretty Woman: The Musical will officially open on Broadway August 16. Directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell, the contemporary stage adaptation of the popular romantic comedy from the ’90s stars Samantha Barks as Vivian alongside Andy Karl as Edward.
The musical adaptation of Tootsie, featuring a score by The Band’s Visit Tony winner David Yazbek and book by Robert Horn, is ready to introduce Broadway audiences to Dorothy Michaels. Performances will begin March 29, 2019, at the Marquis Theatre, where it will officially open April 23.
Leading the cast of Tootsie will be Tony nominee Santino Fontana as Michael Dorsey, a struggling actor who lands a job under the female persona of Dorothy Michaels. The cast also includes Lilli Cooper as Julie Nichols, Sarah Stiles as Sandy Lester, John Behlmann as Max Von Horn, Andy Grotelueschen as Jeff Slater, Julie Halston as Rita Marshall, Michael McGrath as Stan Fields, and Reg Rogers as Ron Carlisle.
Tony and Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston, who won a 2018 Olivier Award for his performance as Howard Beale in Network, will reprise the role when the 2017 National Theatre production arrives on Broadway this fall at the Cort Theatre.
Directed by Tony and Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove, Network is adapted by Tony and Olivier winner Lee Hall, based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name by Paddy Chayefsky.
Previews will begin November 10 prior to an official opening December 6. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
and Glengarry Glen Ross:
Two-time Tony nominee Amy Morton (August: Osage County, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) will direct a Broadway revival of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Glengarry Glen Ross, featuring an all-female cast.
Performances will begin on Broadway in May 2019. Exact dates, the full design team, theatre, and casting will be announced at a later date.
