Count Of Monte Cristo Cancelled?

I know Bean is riding high following the success of One Man - but if the script was really that far off being complete, it should not have been programmed.

LOL. I shouldn’t laugh at the truth but ...
Dam I was actually looking forward to this. I wonder what can be programmed in time for Christmas. Has Nicky got anything else he can scale up from the cottesloe?! Or perhaps it will be shakespeare or he may even have to stage a musical
Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

In fact, I believe Tim Sheader directed it at Bristol Old Vic about five years ago, it'd be a nice lead in to Monte Cristo if it happens too.

The Count was specifically aimed at a youth audience, The recommended age range was 10+, for that reason they should replace it with another "family" (dread word) show. When I was visiting NT at the weekend a visitor was berating a hapless box office staffer about the dearth of children's theatre at NT, that is not strictly true (and we have Katie Mitchell's "Hansel and Gretel" to look forward to, if that is the phrase I want) but replacing it with a middle-aged middle-class (Guilty !) drama is not acceptable.
