Not at all surprised - I've long wondered how long Dreamboats would plod on for.

Not a surprise. It did well to plough on as long as it did.

I saw the touring version on Thursday in Sheffield and thoroughly enjoyed it,  I do think the fact that there have been two tours of it whilst showing in the West End must have some impact on sales. I get down about two or three times a year to see a West End show and would never see one that I can see on tour, from the point of view of cost if nothing else.

Kind of hope the next show at the Playhouse is a play, don't think it has had a play for four years.

I did like Dreamboats when I saw it but I would imagine it does good business on tour and I was starting to wonder how much longer it would run considering that the Playhouse was its second West End venue.

It's had a good run, it must have had a pretty low advance for it to close in two weeks rather than wait until September.
