WOW!! An amazing final show!! Everyone was brilliant. I was second row and all of those around me were crying the entire second act, including me!! The snow fell hard, as did the confetti at the end!! The entire cast cried and the Scarecrow and Dorothy could barely finish the show in the end!! Truly incredible final show, and those who brought the little programme got the insert from the brocure for free. I attempted stage door, but was virtually impossible, they said it would be hours as family and friends had a party there before the main party tonight!! Got a signed Sophie postcard though!! <3

They Seem to have been determined to get rid of the stocks. Quite impressed by how they managed to end up with no programmes rather than heaps unsold too.

Same happened with Love Never Dies (that had no programmes left by closing night).

There was nothing special about the programmes for those who care, other than the role of "Doorman" being changed from Des O Connor to Stephen Scott

Dissapointed a video bootleg never came from the show as I never got a chance to see it before it closed. Not a huge fan of the musical at all but I still wish I could have seen it, maybe this version would have changed my mind

Just found the production photos of the Canadian production of this with quite an interesting set without using the revolve.

If I'm right, this cast is meant to tour North America so who knows?! Maybe it will come here!

i thought the set and costumes in london were at times ugly but i do see some set improvements here, especially the witches castle.

The Totonto set looks far better than the London...wasn't expecting the revolve to be included because of the touring plans.

I'm guessing the yellow brick road is just a mini treadmill...not as flashy as the revolve by I like it.

And the witches Act 2 coatume is an improvement, never understood the need for the ball gown.

Love the new witches tower design! Definitely an improvement over the large, clunky tower used in London

Here's the trailer for it as well http://m.youtube.com...h?v=gpVoIToKVk8

Despite the London production having the terrific revolve, this production just seems to look better and less tacky for some reason.
