A Chorus Line

As for the shows you have closing next year, let's think about what's replacing them:
Cabaret - no idea what's opening at the Savoy when that closes, could be anything really
Shrek - replaced by Charlie, starring Douglas Hodge and who knows who else, likely to be a huge spectacular show
Dreamboats - isn't even in a musical house, no wonder a play's taking over again
Taboo - not playing a traditional theatre venue
Chicago tour - there will be other tours to employ all those actors next year
Once has a larger cast than Blood Brothers (and one that requires quadruple threats as it's an actor muso show). Ghost is being replaced by Viva Forever, starring the great Sally Ann Triplett and a hugely talented young cast. Grease went years ago. Legally was replaced by Cabaret, and WOZ is of course being replaced by Chorus Line.
Of course all these things are down to personal taste, but I'm not sure what you want to see that means the new shows we're getting aren't exciting.

Actually, it's not rubbish. I know people in the industry who have been fired for doing exactly what you're doing, Jamiem.
I'm self employed
As for the casting, I have to say it makes me want to see the show even less. And I wasn't that fussed to begin with. I can't get my head around this show coming back, and into such a huge venue.

They are, though. This is a complete recreation of the original Broadway staging. The design is the same, the direction is the same, the choreography is the same... the only difference is in the orchestration and the fact that Bennett is dead so his associate Bob Avian and original cast member Baayork Lee have recreated his work.
The last Broadway revival - the same recreation of the original Broadway staging that we are getting here - had someone from Saved By The Bell in it. That didn't stop it being Bennett's original production up there on the stage.
