New Shows on the Broadway Horizon

There are several Broadway aimed shows that have been talked about or announced in varying levels of certainty over the last several weeks that I would like to bring to your attention.  In no particular order, they are:

Frozen:  Although there is no clear timeline for this one, it has been confirmed that the hit Disney movie Frozen will be coming to Broadway.  One of the film's producers has gone on the official record to state that there will be a Broadway adaptation in the property's future.

Finding Neverland:  The Broadway-bound adaptation of the 2004 Johnny Depp/Kate Winslet movie had its premier at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has been breaking box office records.  The musical is going to hit Broadway in March and is being rumored to enter the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, following the January departure of that theater's current tenant -- Motown: The Musical.

Shakespeare in Love:  This musical adaptation of the 1998 Gwyneth Paltrow/Joseph Fiennes movie opened to smash-hit success in London.  Though no official plans have been put in place, the producers of the London version are eyeing a Broadway run starting in the 2014-2015 season.

It Shoulda Been You:  An Equity casting notice has led to speculation that the show will be hitting Broadway in March of 2015.  The show was originally produced at the George Street Playhouse in New Jersey.  Let's see what will be!
