Is The Scarlet Pimpernel Headed Back to Broadway?

News   Is The Scarlet Pimpernel Headed Back to Broadway?
The Scarlet Pimpernel may have already had three lives on Broadway — it was launched three times with different casts — but it may be heading back to the New York stage for a new life.

In the "66th & Broadway: Frank Wildhorn & Friends" concert that aired on PBS Oct. 11, composer Wildhorn revealed, "[The Scarlet Pimpernel] has had a wonderful life and a wonderful international life. And, I think I can tell you that I think the revival is coming. That's what they tell me, so I'm going to believe them. The romantic idealist, cockeyed optimist, idiot that I am. I'm still believing them." No official announcement about a Broadway revival has been made.

The Scarlet Pimpernel opened at Broadway's Minskoff Theatre in November 1997 with a cast led by Christine Andreas, Terrence Mann and Douglas Sills. A revised version, also at the Minskoff and starring Rachel York, Rex Smith and Sills, opened in October 1998. A third version played the Neil Simon Theatre September 1999-January 2000 and cast Carolee Carmello, Ron Bohmer and Marc Kudisch in the leads.
