It was announced today that Spamalot is coming to the new Wynn Hotel starting in 2007 with a seven year (?!) contract to be performed 12 times a week in a new theater being build especially for this show.
Avenue Q opens at the Wynn this August, again in a new theater being built just for this show.
Hairspray is coming to the Luxor as soon as the Blue Man Group moves over to The Venetian Hotel. Word is that The Venetian is also getting a new Phantom Of The Opera with a lake being built on their new theater.
No word yet what will replace Mama Mia! at the Mandalay Bay if, and when, it ever closes. Again, rumor is The Producers might go there but because Mama Mia! is still selling well, this might not pan out anytime in the near future.
I am really happy about this new trend as one of the things I miss most about NYC is not being able to see the new musicals.
