Still it's very sad that so many people have lost their jobs.. Jennifer S and Judy C should never have let the show open with that script, and how foolish to have such a short preview period... At least with a month or so of previews , pretty major changes can be achieved. It smacks of total arrogance to me.

They only got standing ovations because the cast literally begged for them...
I actually didn't think the actress playing Viva was bad. Sally Dexter stole the show though, but the rest of them were pretty abysmal though.

Thought the savoy comment was unlikely and illogical
Reliable poster on bwayworld has said newsies is an option for autumn
Newsies would be perfect for the Piccadilly but I think the Pajama Game could do a limited run before that although I think it needs a playhouse but not many are free at the moment.

“These days you have to be fearless to produce a new musical, something that is not a revival, a film or a tribute show, but something really original.”
Yes, using Spice Girls songs is REALLY "original". How fearless you are!

She is hardly the queen of original theatre. Ive lost a lot of respect for her over this, some of the stuff she comes out with. I know its an attempt at good PR, but its so off the mark no one buys it. I wonder if Mamma Mia was more luck than judgement now
