What Goes Into Palladium Now?

There's going to be quite a few big shows opening next year with Charlie, Mormon, etc.
I'm very intrigued.

If the JCS set can be adapted to fit it might work, but only a short run (as most people wanting to see it will have), and they'd have to recast some big roles, as I doubt they will be free at reasonably short notice.
If nothing can be rustled up, I can see the Oliver! tour coming in when it ends in March . I know it hasn't been away long, but putting Sam Barks as a "movie star" in the publicity would no doubt give it a boost.. Maybe a 6 month run followed by whatever Chichester does next year, or Newsies if they really are looking for a house over here.

Interesting about Oliver... I think also if they found a good Fagin, then yes.

I'm not aware of anything lined up other than the rumoured transfer into town of jcs which would fit. Or they will just have a series of variety type filler shows.
It could also be the opportunity for a big show to swoop in that hadn't initially thought it could find a theatre, eg a broadway transfer

I've read so many things - Finding Neverland seems the most likely but there was also talk of 42nd Street.
