Two Shows Aiming for The Great White Way

Two shows have announced intentions to land on Broadway in the next eighteen months or so.

The first is a revival of the musical She Loves Me.  This production will be produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company and plans to arrive on Broadway in the spring of 2016, starring Tony winner Laura Benanti and stage and screen star Josh Radnor of How I Met Your Mother.  The show will appear as part of the Roundabout's 50th anniversary season in a production directed by Scott Ellis, who directed the previous (and Tony-winning) Broadway revival of the show for the Roundabout in 1993.

In other news, producers of the off-Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, which appeared in 2012 and 2013 off-Broadway, has announced that they are looking to take the show to Broadway.  The story follows part of the long novel War & Peace.
