This is the best news I've heard all year. Now while the show was actually announced last fall the official dates were not announced until today. Previews are set to begin on July 14 with opening night scheduled for August 14th. Unlike the original production which ran for over 12 years and won 4 1996 Tony Awards including Best Musical this new production will open at New World Stages which is located Off-Broadway. Now a few years ago that would have been unheard of but due to the recent success of fellow Tony winners Avenue Q and The 39 Steps who also made the leap to Off-Broadway it has become the new thing. For one thing it is a whole lot cheaper to produce a show in a non-Broadway house. Plus by playing in a smaller venue you have a better chance of it enjoying a longer run. Not only but the prices are lower. Told you it was good news didn't I? As of now an on sale date for tickets has yet to be announced but you can be rest assured that when it does I will let you know. Until next time theatre fans.
