I did hear November mentioned for some form of release on Loserville's facebook page, however I am not 100% sure if that is a full cast recording or what exactly.

if it helps anyone this wednesday (7th Nov ) the MATINEE is a fan event - every seat in the theatre is £15 ( no booking fees) with a q&a with James Bourne after the show - enter code FANDAY on the official website ( nimax) for this deal

Saw this last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Stalls were less than half full, dress looked mostly empty and upper circle was closed. Can't see it lasting until Christmas which is a shame because I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a new show so much.

Sadly, that could have been predicted weeks ago - the reviews (from our press' broad mix of almost exclusively middle-aged, middle-class, Caucasian male pool of reviewers) didn't do the show any favours - despite new, British productions being something the industry is supposedly crying out for.

I don't think their own advertising has helped much - all the adverts on the underground " Do you like Glee ? "...  " Do You like Grease ? " - I hate Glee and I don't even see the connection to Grease ..  but I really enjoyed Loserville ...  Glee is cover versions with questionable voices ! Loserville is not cover versions ..  so if you answer NO to those adverts then you have already lost potential customers and given them the wrong opinion !

But with no anchor to hang it on (besides playing up the Busted/Sons of Dork link), how else are they meant to publicise it? I agree that some of the choices for the campaign have been questionable, however we can't doubt they've spent a lot of money in trying to make it work.

I don't think the Busted / Sons of Dork are any kind of selling point - especially for the overseas market which is a LOT of the west end .. I am no advertising marketer but grabbers like " Original new musical full of enthusiasm and originality " or " this much energy will leave you exhausted " .. " scenery and energy that you will never have seen before " something that grabs your attention or curiosity  ??

True - hopefully when they refresh the posters they will have press quotes on.
