According to a reliable poster on broadwayworld the palladiums next show will be announced I'm Bazs column on Friday. I guess the favourite would be finding neverland with jcs an outside bet. Newsies I guess could take advantage of the prestigious London home of family entertainment suddenly being available and swoop in.

I can't see a chorus line being successful

According to posters on broadwayworld, and now linking to an article on Variety, it will indeed be A Chorus Line, limited run from 2nd February to 29th June: http://www.variety.c...le/VR1118058803

So who knows where Finding Neverland will go, if it does indeed go anywhere!

Hopefully I'll get down to see A Chorus Line, but I expect it'll struggle to sell out the Palladium, it doesn't have the immediate recognition appeal of Singin in the Rain...

I really can't see this being a sell out in such a large venue

The Savoy... or the Shaftesbury.... One or the other...

I thought Memphis was going to the Shaftesbury, or is that still only a rumour?

Barnum has been rumoured from CamMac for years so it would be nice to see the production unfold at the end of 2013! Neil Patrick Harris and John B have always been strongly tipped to play the title role.

"Once upon a time", as Into the Woods begins, the Shaftesbury was seen as a successful house, whilst the "cursed" theatre where "nothing succeeded" was the Phoenix.

Are you perhaps hankering after the old days with this suggestion?? :D
The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that the road would twist

I thought that curse moved to the Novello? :D
