Post Show Recommendations?
Hi, yet another "Recommend a show" thread.

The company I work for has asked each of us to submit 10 shows for consideration. Large casts with lots of female roles are good, expensive sets and costumes are bad. They can be plays or musicals, and do NOT have to be family friendly. (In recent years, Cabaret, Marat/Sade, JCS have all sold well, Moliere did poorly) They want to avoid the typical "community theatre" shows like R&H.

I'd love to hear any ideas you might have (preferably ones I can read or listen to ahead of time).

Perhaps We Will Rock You? I think quite a lot of the cast could be female. And the music should be pretty familiar to most!

Play nice, now.
