So is Aaron Sidwell the celebrity replacement for Gareth Gates?

Nah, Aaron Sidwell was in the WYP production.  Looks like he's been replaced by Stewart Clarke, who's just graduated from Warwick according to his website.

I've decided im really looking forward to this! I hope it doesn't look as cramped as Chicago did though, the Garrick just doesn't seem right for a musical.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

I worry that a show opening October 1st... where nobody knows what the plot is, what the songs are, or anyone in it really, and with a poster which doesn't exactly endear itself to the usual WASP theatre goer, a website that has nothing on it... and which didn't exactly set the world on fire in Leeds for one month (2/5 Daily Mail 3/5 The Guardian)... how will it fare when the theatre comes to look at how it's doing a few months in (top price tickets £70), when everyone is saving for Christmas, tax bills, or would rather see a panto

I'm left with the question... why should I see this?  I'm sure it'll be very nice, but...

I agree, and tickets seem quite pricy for it, something I'd be interested in seeing but not something I have to see.

Not sure where you are getting your pricing information from? Like all other shows these days, Premium seats are available at £65.00. Even shows that do offer premium seats never list their top price at the premium rate, so with Loserville the top price is £49.50 at weekends and £45.00 Mon - Thurs, which is a huge difference to you quoting top price at £70.00. These are very good prices for a West End musical and there are also also seats from £10.00 so I think this will be accessible to everyone without breaking the bank (or saving for Xmas as you say). It is a new, fresh musical and hopefully will be just what the West End needs instead of a revival that has been around for years.

TICKETS

Mondays to Thursdays: £10.00 - £45.00
Fridays & Saturdays: £10.00 - £49.50

There is a friends and family rate for groups of just 4 people!
FRIENDS & FAMILY TICKET

Friends & Family Ticket: £32.50 each for 4+ - valid on best available seats for Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening and Wednesday matinee performances.
