Prince of Broadway

I am hoping JEYKELL AND HYDE does well.
Are Michael Ball and Imeleda Staunton still bringing SWEENEY TODD across the pond?

Jekyll & Hyde (Don't know the show, but excited to see Deborah Cox!)

Rocky - I'll be honest, I have my doubts. But I'll follow Ahrens and Flaherty anywhere so I'm looking very much forward to this.
Finding Neverland - Also love for Korie and Fankel. Not terribly impressed with the videos I've seen, but then again I thought Grey Gardens was the worst idea for a musical and it turned out to me one of my favorites.
To my knowledge though neither of these shows has officially announced a Broadway production.

Jekyll and Hyde - it is stunning. Constantine and Deborah are amazing in the show. (saw twice in Detroit)

I heard Imelda was going to headline a revival on Gypsy in West End. I hadn't heard anything about that revival transferring over,

I heard they are cancelling Prince of Broadway and doing Hal and Steve's production of Prince of Bel Air (The Musical) instead.

I doubt the 2012 revival of Sweeney will transfer to Broadway. It was in the talks and Sondheim wanted it to. It just turned out to be too expensive - they needed something like $10 million to do it.
And even if they got the money now I don't think Michael and Imelda have the time.

^ Plus I remember reading Imelda doing Gypsy soon.
