Dreamboats I can't see going yet, TS1 wouldn't suit it I don't think. How about a transfer of Chichester's Arturo Ui or Heartbreak House? The former has just opened to fab reviews.

I think a small theatre may be appropriate for the intimate set and action in Arturo Ui

Sad. I only saw Chicago on tour and I never got into it. I like the music though and the film is one of the better examples of it's genre.
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"

Can we just have a "What show's going into what theatre and when" topic and be done with it?!

I am glad Chicago is closing. An excellent production originally but long since become tired and celebrity driven. I had visions of it being at the Garrick for years which is an excellent house for plays and shorter runs.

Yes, pleased here too. Should've just closed when it left the Cambridge, but maybe it was doing much better business then. The Garrick is in a v good location, with lots of passing tourist trade, but I suppose they haven't had big names in it lately so that hasn't got them in. Still, great that the Garrick will be freed up for (hopefully) plays. And of course Chicago will still be touring the UK, so not all lost.

The Garrick is an awful theatre! Sight lines from the stalls are terrible and the whole building vibrates whenever a tube passes underneath!

Quite a few theatres are affected by tubes. When I've been to the Garrick my view has been fine, though I've only ever at front stalls. I know the overhang there is terrible though.

HG: London will be even busier during the Olympics, with tourists, especially around Trafalgar Square where there are a few Games venues too.
