Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter asking them to share their choices for roles they'd like to see Wilson take on in his Broadway return.
Here are some reader responses followed by our own commentary.
Jeannette Quintana: Les Mis Laura Beth Dailey: Les Miserables Ryan McClure: I feel like it'll definitely be Les Mis since he said "spring 2014." Chauncy McButterbeans: Les Miserables? KatieAnneLockie: Les Miserables. He's got a great voice and his Phantom work proves he could do Les Mis Ladybirdplane: I want @patrickwilson73 as Javert. He has the strength and the stamina to do it.
The international hit musical Les Misérables is set to return to New York City for its third Broadway outing beginning March 1, 2014. Casting has not been announced for the 25th-anniversary, re-imagined production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg's Tony Award-winning musical. Wilson would make an ideal Jean Valjean (originated by Colm Wilkinson) or his tireless pursuer Javert (originated on Broadway by Terrence Mann). Either way he's cast, audiences would have the chance to hear him sing "Bring Him Home" or "Stars."
Now it's time to surrender to the most thrilling Broadway show ever imagined... the longest-running musical phenomenon in Broadway history. Unmask your savings today, because tonight belongs to Phantom. Tickets as low as $27!
