Well the Shaftesbury would be a possibility, with Burn the Floor following ROA therem which surely won't have a long run.

I'll believe it when I see it.

I think Finding Neverland needs a midsized theatre like the Savoy, Phoenix or at a push the Victoria Palace, the Palladium would be far too big.

Is Cabaret open-ended at the Savoy?  I know it had a short initial booking period, but can't remember reading if it's open-ended or not - if not, then the Savoy could be a possibility.   Not sure if anything's yet confirmed to be taking the Phoenix after Blood Brothers goes either....

Oh no, The Audience will be lost in the Savoy, just like The Sunshine Boys was.

I've only seen Legally Blonde at the Savoy but it seems like the sort of theatre that is suitable for musicals and plays similar to the Novello.

Not knowing this new play you might be right but remember that 'noises off' worked beautifully there for 7 years

I think Neverland would be perfect in the Savoy, if they can squeeze it in... From what I hear about the set at the Curve they've spent a lot on it and it would be unlikely they'd rebuild a larger version for somewhere like the Palladium. They need to find a place where it fits in town.

The Palladium is too big in terms of audience. I don't think the show has the appeal to fill 2200 seats every night. Pheonix or Savoy would be great... It would be great at the Cambridge too, but I don't think Matilda is going anywhere for a while!
