Brits Flood Broadway

According to Judd Hollander the US Correspondent for the Stage (Thurs Sept 25th 2008), British Theatre is flooding Broadway at the moment. Equus opened at the Broadhurst Theatre on 25th September, the Royal Court's Seagull is opening on 1st October at the Walter Kerr Theatre, A Man For All Seasons is being produced by the Roundabout Theatre at the American Airlines Theatre, the musical epic A Tale of Two Cities at the Al Hirschfield Theatre, Heroes by Tom Stoppard will be presented by the Keen Company, and Billy Elliot at the Imperial Theatre... as well as many others.

Steve's musical composition had a very good reception on Broadway a few years ago, at the Circle in the Square Theatre, with his Drama Desk Nomination for Not About Nightingales, directed by Trevor Nunn.

I am working on a list of theatre producers and literary managers to go and see when I go to New York on 17th November after the Delaware New Works Festival. Although Possessed is a very English musical, it seems to me that most of the other shows that are going to Broadway are also very English.
