Michael Levine: I'd love to see a revival of Applause, the musical adaptation of All About Eve. Lea Michele as Eve Harrington and Idina Menzel as Margo Channing, the older star she's trying to replace.

Featuring a score by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, and a book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Applause won the 1970 Tony Award for Best Musical. The original production starred Penny Fuller as Eve Harrington and Lauren Bacall as Margo Channing. It has never had a major Broadway revival.
