Awesome trailer here (even though it doesn't really focus on the actual show i.e. song previews or actors) http://www.huffingto...kusaolp00000003 would be so cool if they did dress up Drury Lane like this!

And as for the Bricusse/Newley songs, I can't see them using them at all despite how much they are already loved (will probably hear a lot of disappointed audience reviews!). But if they are going to pull this new music off, then Wittman and Shaiman are going to have to be quite quick and quirky in they're songwriting, just in the way Tim Minchin was for Matilda to really suit Roald Dahl's writing, and standing by the earlier point of it should be from Charlie's perspective. Hence the Bricusse/Newley songs were a delight to listen to for an old fashioned musical, they didn't suit Dahl's writing which is probably why he disowned the original film.

No! I can't see the trailer because of my location. Would someone be so kind to upload it to youtube?

The trailer is on YouTube. If it's any consolation, it doesn't actually show anything of the show.

I agree - it reminds me of an ad for the chocolate bar rather than a west end musical...
