It will be the European tour set, no doubt using the projection production style, and so would be a bit lost in a larger house.

To be honest, that production has been rumoured for so long I'm beginning to doubt there's much in it apart from Cam Mac constantly testing the water to see if there's any interest in a revival.

I think it's been rumoured to be coming back since the day it left Drury Lane!

Miss Saigon and Mary Poppins will be back in the West End some day, it's always been the plan as far as the rumours go.

The reason Saigon and Poppins closed originally were because they couldn't sustain such large running costs indefinitely... They'll be back, just the smaller versions (which are still pretty good!) ... I can't imagine they wouldn't include a real helicopter though, there must be one from the first UK tour knocking about somewhere...

Just seen a cast announcement for this. Looks like it will be amazing. Nigel planer as grandpa joe, Clive carter as mr Salt, Jasna Ivor as mrs glop and various others. A good, strong principle cast and ensemble!

And now we know the Oompa Loompas are not little people...Im guessing it will be like the munchkins in Wizard of Oz, just a new interpretation altogether.
