How about a winter berth after its arena tour for J C Superstar - ideal for the Olivier.

I may humbly suggest that certain people may not be of the opinion that using a venue in the subsidised sector to perform a piece by the multi-millionaire Lloyd-Webber is the best use of public money.

Which certain people? Whoever they may be, their opinion obviously has no weight because it hasn't prevented the multi-millionaire Alan Bennett's People being scheduled in the NT Lyttelton over the same period.

The national theatres commercial producing arm is putting the established commercial producers to shame

@honouredguest

There is a difference between the National producing a show written by a millionaire playwrite or composer themselves and them playing host to an external for profit commercial production.

They do have a family show that would be perfect for the Christmas season, and I think its a few years now since it was last put on. It would go down very well as an NT Live broadcast as well.

It's called "Wind In The Willows".

Peter & The Starcatcher is where Rooster is placing his money for the Christmas show.

Do they still have the sets for Frankenstein? Now would be an ideal time to bring it back

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.
