Splamalot to playhouse in November 2012

Maybe new production of blood brothers to Harold Pinter Theatre in 2013 ?

I would think the Harold Pinter is too profitable and desirable for plays for ATG to want to put Blood Brothers in there.

Great for Spamalot though! Hope Bonnie Langford continues.

YES! Is the new London run doing that well?

Don't really see this being a good idea... This production just feels so cheap, would have been a lot better if the Avenue Q tour had come into town instead.

Though it does possibly give me the opportunity to see Jon Robins in town...

I hope she doesn't, she was utterly dreadful when I saw the touring version, and thus I didn't see it when I had the chance to in London last week.

I love the show, it's harmless hilarious fun, but whether or not I'd go back and see it in the West End would depend a lot on the cast...I agree that the set could do with a bit of a revamp though.

Avenue Q's had a long run in London too recently to come back yet I would think.

Terrible news. This version is so awful its slightly embarrassing. Playhouse deserves much much better.

Interesting it went to the Playhouse rather the Phoenix, guess ATG has something planned for it.
