The Top 10 Broadway Shows I wish I produced . . .

Stephen Sondheim inspires me in many ways.

One of the more obscure ways was when I read a very cool ego-less list of songs that he entitled, “Songs I Wish I Wrote.”  (You can read that list here).

Soooooo, I was thinking, what Broadway shows do I wish I produced?

It took me all of about 10 seconds to come up with my 10 shows that I wish I produced.

And they are . . .

Wait a minute.  This top ten list calls for the word of a website superhero known as . . . da-da-da-da . . .!

If you don’t know what Culturalist is, be prepared to get Angry Birds-like addicted.  The brainchild of Jujamcyn Pres, Jordan Roth, is a website where you can make your own Top 10’s, and tag them with images and photos . . . and then encourage other folks to do the same.  It’s like a Wikipedia-Amazon list mash-up.  And it’s fun.

So that’s why I posted my Top 10 Broadway Shows I wished I produced on the site.

Check ’em out here:  Ken’s Top 10 Broadway Shows He Wishes He Produced.

And then post your own.  And then create your own Top 10 List.  And then I’ll check it out.

And then we’ll all wonder where the last several days went.  #TopTenListamania!

    Great list, but a better list would be 10 shows that you wished you’d produced that you could have actually been involved with (so from when you started working in theater forward, no West Side Stories). Also, the whys (besides producer profits) for each one – I realize Culturalist didn’t give you the explanation option, but you could use a future column to talk about whys.

  • John Olson says:

    It would be great to hear why you chose those 9 shows.

  • David Rigano says:

    Any specific production of these that you wish you’d been involved with? Or a list of shows you might even get involved with in a revival if the chance arises?

  • You have to explain “Forever Plaid!” Oy! Not “Chorus Line?”
    While I have you on the line, your last blog which referenced dressing (or lack thereof) for theater and giving it deserved respect was timely. Notice that Audra MacDonald’s about to open “Billy Holiday at the Emerson Bar & Grill” calls for relevant dress on the part of its female audience members. Which implies jacket/tie for men, I assume. Will be interesting to see how many audience members “cooperate.”
