The main reason is because of the casting. The second reason is because of the set. The Barbican and the Palladium have very similar sized stages, and both their auditoriums are huge (though the latter has a larger capacity). They wanted to use the touring set for the Palladium, which I think is even smaller than the set they used at the Barbican, which I thought was ghastly anyway.

You kept on saying you thought the Palladium was too big (it isn't, stage wise), and that WoZ will continue for ever (it won't either). The key reason why SP is not transferring is that Paulo Szot isn't. You never mentioned that.

In the end, you were right in saying SP won;t go to the Palladium, thouugh I suspect that was just a wish of yours which turned into reality. Your reasoning wasn't right, so please don't think you are above us all now. You're not. When Wizard of Oz celebrates its 25th anniverary at the Palladium then you might be, but the chances of that happening are zilch. It's more likely that you'll get blown up in a twister and taken to some magical land where lions and scarecrows can speak. And that'll NEVER happen.

I await Olly's response with baited breath. Ding, ding, round 2.

While I highly doubt it would happen, I'd love if the Sister Act tour returned to the Palladium for a filler season.

Darn! I was so looking forward to seeing South Pacific! I would've gone again if Paulo Szot was in it.

Anyway, as Baz says the show will not last until 'Charlie' gets there. Unless that is, they pull out the stops with the new Wizard and Dorothy.

I think Olly should play the Wizard. I'd definitely go then, probably more than once. I may even go SEVEN times. And then there would be no way the show could possibly close. I can just see it now  on the Palladium marquee: OLLYD24 IS THE WIZARD IN ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER'S (not so) NEW PRODUCTION OF THE WIZARD OF OZ. DON'T MISS OLLY AT THE PALLY.

Ahhh I really wanted to see South Pacific :(

My guess is White Christmas or something like that as filler...but there are plenty of theatres looking for filler at the minute (even more now the Bridget Jones musical appears to be delayed again) so who knows what it'll end up being!

Wonderful Town looks great. If it does transfer, it would be great if The Halle Orchestra could too.

I doubt Wonderful Town would transfer somewhere so big, its not exactly selling out on tour, especially in the larger venues.
