When's Top Hat scheduled to run at the Aldwych until (and when's it likely to?).  Hadn't realised Book of Mormon was definite for the Prince of Wales so soon, sorry about that!

I think Top hat is booking til January, given its lack of discounts expect it to be running for a while yet.

I think Ghost is booking into next year so unlikely to be the Piccadilly.

What does that leave us with?  The Gielgud if Chariots of Fire is doing a limited run only, or the Duke of York's (I doubt it), the Wyndhams if Abigail's Party isn't open-ended (which I think it is?) or the Vaudeville...not convinced it would go to any of those.

I'm not really familiar with how venue choice really works, but is there anything to stop it going into the Barbican?

It's all very well saying that, but which of them are actually going to be free?

Booking dates mean nothing. The Palace could be an outside choice but SiTR is doing great business. ROA however isn't, and there are lots of discounts. They could downsize to a smaller theatre like they did on Broadway. I'd say Shaftsbury and Aldwych are strong contenders with Piccadilly possible

Exactly. What may not be free now quite possible could be later in the year. A big budget musical going into a they're smaller than 1000 seats or so just doesn't tend to happen.

I don't know if the producers for ghost in London are the same as Broadway, but if so they could be feeling the pinch as its barely making money over there.
