I really can't wait to see what's done with the show... It really will be a brand new production though, and I think it will really be interesting to see how the tour works without all the technical elements which - in my opinion - really made the production.
The London version was an improvement over the Australian one, both in terms of the show and technically. The London bus was FAST compared to Australia!
It's a shame they can't take that version on tour but, as has been mentioned earlier, the licensing costs for the songs were just too much (a major factor as to why the London show closed when it did).
I am a Priscilla fan! I was involved in the London production in various ways throughout it's run and I have never had more fun in my life!
