On Tuesday night, Proctors will announce its 2012-13 Broadway series, the big money-maker for the Schenectady venue.
Back in January, I took a stab at guessing which five shows would hit the boards in the old Vaudeville house.
Here are my guesses (the first three will be beginning their first U.S. tours later this year):
- “War Horse,”
- “Anything Goes,”
- “The Book of Mormon,”
- “Fela!” and
- “American Idiot.”
I chose “Fela!” and “American Idiot” because they seem like fun shows that are now touring but haven’t played Proctors, yet. Other shows in that category include “Billy Elliot,” “Les Miserables” (the 25th anniversary edition), “Mary Poppins” and “Million Dollar Quartet.”
What would you like Proctors to announce tomorrow night?
I so hope it’s Les Mis!!!!
I hope “Book of Mormon”….it is hysterical!!!!!
“Les Miserables” and “Anything Goes” most definitely!!!
BILLY ELLIOT! Since two of the boys playing Billy over the years are from Albany, we should see this play with music that has been called “the best show that you will ever see”
“Million Dollar Quartet”: It’s cheap, corny and easy
