Revival Meeting

Hallooo? Broadway producers? Could we please have a new production of the Kander/Ebb/McNally musical, Kiss of the Spider Woman? Is the deterrent that you can't find a dancin', beltin', web-climbin' powerhouse to play the lead? I guess there aren't so many Chita Riveras around, hmmm? [Chita, who created the role, is pictured above]

Speaking of McNally musicals, I distinctly recall a few years back that good old Terrence [lower photo] was reworking the book for Pal Joey, putting more dramatic emphasis on wartime America. I remember that the team had been given full access to the Rogers & Hart library, and had found some unknown songs... Whatever became of that intriguing project?
