    TLK is now the third longest running show ever on Broadway, though it doesn’t figure to go any higher, as both of the shows ahead of it are still running and figure to go forever as well.
    Beauty and the Beast is still in 10th place, with a run of a little over 13 years.
    (not Disney, but Wicked presently stands in 8th and will be up to 6th a year from now.)

    “Original show from Marvel” sounded a lot cooler 4 years ago, before we got to see how lousy most of the original shows from Marvel have turned out to be.
