I saw Corrie the Musical at the Lowry and it was enjoyable.  However, I fear this will be a bit of a damp squib.  It has the potential to be good but it will be lost in the vast arenas.  This sort of a show could be really good in a theatre but, if you're not in the front few rows at the arena, you'll be relying on a screen, which is daft for live theatre.

I'd really like to go and see what it's like but it isn't coming anywhere near me unfortunately. Will be interested to see the reviews.

At 67.25 for floor seats anywhere near the stage, it ain't cheap.  I'm not prepared to gamble that kind of money for a show that might not live up to its promises.

Interesting news! Judging by the reviews it's a bit of a mess

Was the Lowry production a musical too?

Oops, no I don't think it was.  There may have been a song or two but it was mainly recreated scenes stitched together.  It worked well though.
