It reminds me of the producers, that transferred with much hype and big sales but died off after a year or so. The test for mormon will be if it can hold on to its buzz

If memory serves, THE PRODUCERS went off a cliff as soon as Nathan Lane left. One thing in Mormon's favour, I suppose, is they haven't relied on casting for any of the buzz.

Yes, but the difference being that the Producers was on at Drury Lane with a seating capacity of over 2100 and the Prince of Wales where BOM is playing seats 1160 - about half, so the tickets are going to be hotter for longer!

They have new programmes that now include colour pictures from the West End production instead of black and white ones from rehearsals but I didn't see any glossy brochures yet.

I saw the show again on opening night and I honestly don't understand some of the reviews. If people were offended I'd understand but calling it unfunny or not clever? Pfft, were they watching the same show as me and the rest of the audience?!?

I wrote my own review, hope it's okay to link it here:

I think with the majority of musicals the best you can hope for are 'mixed' reviews.
This show is/will be a major hit with the public and will benefit from word of mouth.
I don't think the reviews are anything to worry about!

Yes.

A London cast recording with Gavin, Alexia and Stephen would be great!

I listened to the OBC recording on spotify the other day and was slightly underwhelmed - either it's much, much funnier live or I'm one of those people who just don't get the humour. So I'm definitely not going to be forking out £75 for a ticket - will wait for discounts and keep trying for the lottery when I'm in town on a saturday, I think.
