At the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire, they're holding out for a 'Hero'
Despite its long-standing love of traditional Broadway fare like "Hairspray" and "A Chorus Line,"the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire is no stranger to new musicals. Among other titles, the commercial theater-in-the-round with the huge, if graying, subscription base has premiered "Annie Warbucks," "Windy City" (now there's a show ripe for revival), "Peggy Sue Got Married" and "The Phantom of the Country Palace." Also "The Bowery Boys" (a show not unlike "Newsies") in 2009 and, just last year, a new Marriott musical based on the Bette Midler movie "For the Boys."
