Why I'm psyched about this New York theatre season

Here, have some things that are not Hamilton
  1. Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly!
    Also starring Gavin Creel 😱
  2. Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard
    Note: Andrew Lloyd Webber now has *four* musicals currently running on Broadway
  3. Patti LuPone in War Paint
    I know nothing about this show but PATTI
  4. Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway
    Saw this show when it premiered in DC almost two years ago and am still in love with it
  5. Jake Gyllenhaal's Broadway musical debut (Sunday in the Park with George)
    Long overdue (See: Little Shop of Horrors at Encores! in 2015)
  6. Hamlet @ The Public Theater
    Starring Oscar Isaac and Keegan-Michael Key (!!)
  7. Norm Lewis in Sweeney Todd off-broadway
    The casting I never knew I needed
  8. Jason Sudeikis in Dead Poets Society off-broadway
    A rare movie-to-stage adaptation I support
