  • Sep : 20 : 2013 - The Tony Award-winning play with the shortest title was Da (1978).
  • Sep : 15 : 2013 - In 1912 New York City theaters became desegregated.
  • Sep : 10 : 2013 - Most New York City Broadway theaters omit the row “I” in their seating to avoid confusion with the number one.

Here on Broadway rumors are as common as regional productions that claim to be “Pre-Broadway.” Luckily, the Spotted Team has their ears to the ground, keeping you on top of what everyone is whispering about!

Congrats to Luis, who correctly identified Rebecca as our Season’s First Casualty in the September 21 Rumor Spot! Now comes a slightly trickier piece of news…you didn’t think the Broadhurst was just going to sit empty through the lucrative holiday season, did you? Clearly there isn’t enough time to put up an entirely new production…but that doesn’t rule out concerts and transfers. You’ll be surprised when you hear what’s coming in! Any guesses?

    Thank for the shout out, Spotted!
    I thought the answer was pretty obvious and was surprised no one else called it out before me. As for this. I think it’s Into the Woods but I HOPE (and that’s a really big hope!) that it’s Dogfight.
