As far as I am aware this is only a limited run at the Savoy. There are shows looking at moving in to The Savoy in February.

Looks like it could  tour. its having a short run in Bromley before moving to the  Savoy.

That may be an escalating trend to bring tours into to fill the empty theatres cropping up as WE  shows close and that  will crop up when some of the  new US arrivals attract too few sales. There's quite a  few tours that are at least as strong as WE shows, some that look stronger  than many.  and some tour casts that I think are stronger  than London ones. Michelle is interesting casting. Take away the prejudice against Eastenders,  and she's got as  much acting experience  as most and judging from very little evidence on ytube she can sing well enough -she's also an interesting look for the character,  and she's popular and well known enough to attract sales. Lets see how she does,

Yes.

Apparently a strictly limited season, according to the article above. Whether this is because of the availability of the stars, or the theatre I do not know.

its in Bromley this week coming and rightly or wrongly its listed for the Mayflower southampton after that http://www.mayflower...tm_medium=MFWeb so its clearly designed to tour. Can't find where it might be after London though.

Rightly or wrongly? Why would it be wrongly advertised at the mayflower?

It always been announced as a short tour then London. This is a reworked version of the production that's toured before.

The tour seems to be Bromley,  Southampton, Nottingham , Norwich and Salford. Obviously room to add more when and if they  leave London.

Id guess that if London is successful it will extend, if not it will simply go back on tour

It's on at the Savoy from October 4th until January 19th.

Some new cast members have been added in the last couple of weeks. Sian Phillips, Harriet Sharpe and Matt Rawle .
