Just out of interest, how many musicians can the Chocolate Factory fit for a musical? And where are they if it's a fringe theatre?

From memory, they can fit as many as needed, but they way they do it, about 6. And I think they are in a sound proof box on stage right.

Depends on the musical as the theatre is an open space that can be changed to fit the production. The most I can remember was 9 for Sweet Charity and A Little Night Music

The Merrily band is 8 players big, in a box to the side of the stage, When the show transfers the band will move to the back of the stage behind the set being revealed at the end of the show,

Quick question about the transfer - without being overly intrusive, does anyone know Jenna Russell's situation? By the end of the Menier run, she seemed ready to have the baby at any moment, and I was wondering how this would affect (if at all) her performance schedule at the Harold Pinter. She was so marvelous that I want to be as sure as possible that she'll be on when I go back to the show!

Jenna Russell's situation appears to be a very unfortunate wardrobe decision.  I saw the show last night (brilliant) and saw Jenna briefly as she was leaving post-show - it appears that they were attempting a fat suit but it makes her look pregnant more than overweight.  That would be the only really negative to this fantastic production.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but they are releasing the front row © every day on-line around 10.30 am for £10 each, presume it's just during previews. Got some for tonight so I'll report back on what they are like. There are still some left at the moment.

The front row at the Harold Pinter theatre has always been a great seat.  Does this mean they're not doing day seats?
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

The website says they're doing front row day seats, so they could be releasing them online because there's been no-one at the box office for them?
