“NYTW and St Ann's seem particularly skilled at sniffing out hits”

I believe Oklahoma! was St.Ann’s first Broadway transfer. Or one of their first. Or at least, the first one in quite a few years. St. Ann’s is one of my absolute favorite theatres - I never miss a show there if I can help it. But I wouldn’t describe them as a theatre that has any ambition to “sniff out” productions that might lead to Broadway transfers. Quite the contrary: I think their programming specifically seeks out incredible productions that would be difficult to mount in a traditional house, or don’t have enough commercial appeal for a Broadway run, or both. Oklahoma’s transfer, and The Jungle’s potential transfer, feel like exceptions - especially since they still fall under the criteria I mentioned.
