Broadway Games: A Blended Marquee Jumble

You may need to use scratch paper to play this week's Broadway Game. This week's game asks you to use letters from the answers to each clue to figure out a "Blended Broadway Marquee!" 

Broadway Games:
A Blended Marquee Jumble

The Jujamcyn Group needs to change the letters on the marquee atop the St. James Theatre. (RIP Frozen...) But the workers forgot the name of the new musical to open there in 2021. They couldn't remember if it is a brand new, trippy musical or a revival of a Tony-winning show. So what did they do? Blended the title and got out of there before Jordan Roth saw it!

ON THE MARQUEE:

⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹     ⎹⎹⎹⎹

⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹     ⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹

CLUES: Each box is one letter. Each box that is orange represents a letter that belongs on the marquee above.  Good luck!

1. The original Spider Woman: ⎹⎹⎹⎹   ⎹⎹⎹⎹

2. The musical Pygmalion:     ⎹⎹⎹   ⎹⎹

3. He plays Tony: ⎹⎹⎹   ⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹

4. Where Peter Pan lives: ⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹

5. She a sparkling diamond at the Moulin Rouge!: ⎹⎹⎹

6. The Stage Manager narrates this classic play: ⎹   ⎹⎹⎹

7. Real life Funny Girl: ⎹⎹⎹⎹   ⎹⎹⎹

8. The Go-Go's Musical: ⎹⎹   ⎹⎹⎹⎹   ⎹⎹⎹

9. Oh, those summer nights!: ⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹

10. This classic musical has real ups and downs: ⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹⎹
