Sometimes, new plays [[SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced are highly anticipated]].
----
* The Royal Shakespeare Company are still trying to develop that stage musical of Creator/RoaldDahl's ''Literature/{{Matilda}}'' they've been working on for years? Pff, when are they going to learn ... wait, what? They've asked TimMinchin to write the score?! When do tickets go on sale?!
** And it's going to Broadway?! GET ME ON THE LIST!!!
* A musical of ''LittleMissSunshine''? I don't know. The score's being written by William Finn? Yep, that'll work!
** And with the book written by James Lapine? YES.
* They're making a musical based on Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian? Ok. Idle's always funny, but this might be a stretch. Wait, they're releasing a performance on DVD starring all of the surviving [[Creator/MontyPython Pythons]]? DO WANT!
* They're doing a musical of "Bring It On?" Okay, might be good... Wait, Lin-Manuel Miranda is writing the music/lyrics? Hell yes!!!
* What do you get when you cross [[Creator/DavidTennant the Tenth Doctor]], [[Creator/PatrickStewart Captain Picard]], and Theatre/{{Hamlet}}? The best Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet [[http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/episodes/hamlet/watch-the-film/980/?sms_ss=facebook&at_xt=4d45f42677fa7130,0 EVER!]]
* Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's had a hard time impressing its fanbase in the wake of several disappointing shows since 2008, but there are a few recent announcements that excited them:
** The announcement of Francois Girard as the director of ''Zarkana'' (2011) was seen as promising, since his ''[=ZED=]'' (2008) was a rare bright spot in the recent downward arc.
** The history-of-film inspired show ''[=IRIS=]'' (also 2011) made waves with the announcement that DannyElfman would be writing its score.
* A [[{{RENT}} modern version of ''La Boheme'']]? Set in new York? Hm... dunno what to make about it... what, it starred Idina F*ing Menzel in its premier?! AND in the movie? And the movie has Rosario Dawson? Ok, maybe I could take a - OMG OMG OMG, IT'S AWESOME!
* [[Creator/DavidTennant The Doctor]] and [[Creator/CatherineTate Donna]] doing Shakespeare? One of the best ''Series/{{Doctor Who}}'' pairings ever [[IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine together again?]] And playing [[Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing two of the snarkiest characters in Shakespeare canon?]] Yes, please.
* Hey, Norm Lewis is going to star in ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' on Broadway! Awesome! And fan favorite Sierra Boggess is returning as Christine--neat! I don't see how things can get much bet--''THEY'RE BRINGING BACK THE "WANDERING CHILD" TRIO??? OH HELL YES!!!''
