This really sounds like Ghost's little sister.  Let's hope it fares better commercially.
It's not so much do what you like, as it is that you like what you do

I went again on Friday and the show has tightened up a lot since the first preview. The sets move a lot faster and quieter, quite a lot of the scenes flow better. It still needs work and I don’t think it’ll ever be perfect, but it’s a fab night out and I think I might be there quite regularly, at least while Heather is there, she is simply phenomenal in my opinion. Been a fan for a long time, so am thrilled to have her in town and will most certainly make the most of it. :-)

Talking of which, does anyone know how long she is contracted for?

I went tonight getting a day seat.
I have never seen the film, so I take the show on its own merit. My verdict (for what it's worth), I really liked it. Actually it's one of the best night's out I've had in London. Yes there are a couple of dead moments, but it has a lot going for it. The scenery is mostly very good and some pretty clever. There were moments I felt a shiver up my back. And I even got a high-five from Heather at the end.
Being still in preview (I noticed the MD writing on the score during the interval), it can still tighten up and even develop; but I'm working out when I can visit again.
Side note: the ticket staff were "professional" but certainly not friendly.

It is very noticeable that everyone ( including myself ) says 2 things YES Heather is fantastic and YES the scenery is very clever and innovative.Then there is a mention of Debbie Kurup who was good too but that is about it.Unless there are a LOT of changes I can't see it going the distance.

No - but there will undoubtedly be a cast recording.
