Waylon William Werner: Children of Eden (though I suppose it never made it TO Broadway)

Since Stephen Schwartz's popular musical Children of Eden never made it to Broadway, maybe now is the time. The musical, inspired by the Old Testament, premiered in London in 1991 and was seen in a 1997 staging at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse, which was considered the definitive production of the show. With a stellar cast, including Stephanie Mills, Hunter Foster, Darius de Haas and more, we'd love to see the production make its Broadway bow. Plus, with Schwartz's revival of Pippin taking home the 2013 Tony and his Wicked continually soaring in box-office sales, what are producers waiting for?
