Not especially. One man replaced lnd. I dont think its a case of play vs musical, top hat isnt selling (in a house thats used for both plays and musicals) and the national want to transfer their show in. Nothings being 'shoved out'

Before Top Hat opened at the Aldwych, two plays filled in so its not unusual. A lot of the 1000-1200 theatres like the Savoy,Novello etc have hosted plays as well as musicals.

The National have been on a roll with their transfers and they seem to open ended runs apart from Untold Stories and I suspect This House will be a limited run as well.

It'll be interesting to see what they do about the cast if it's staying around till October. I heard that both the leads had 6 month contracts so, if that is correct, I wonder if they'll stay for an extra three months or if there'll be another cast change.

Anyone else find it odd that the big ticket agents aren't selling this past 26th October anymore, but there's been no official announcement? I do hope this isn't yet another announcement for Baz Boing Boing in the morning.

Baz said this was closing last week so he already had the scoop, and the cast have been told 26 Oct

Wasn't his scoop that it was closing earlier than that to make way for the transfer of This House? None of that panned out, of course. I thought the 26th October was a new date.

yeah  but he is right, its closing early, and This House may move in we dont know yet. So not sure how he is wrong really.  The dates might be out a bit but the basic facts are right..Top Hat is closing early.
