I hope this will be playing at the 02 as musicals work so well within its intimate space  ...

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

Would Kenwright be producing this show..? Someone tweeted this to start in jan13 I believe ?!

Kenwright is producing, the casting came up on spotlight about 3 or 4 months ago from what I can remember.

This might be a huge hit in uk and in Europe.. As it will have just followed a massive uk production of phantom and a much better German version..

Time will tell..

The new tour is hardly "massive", regardless of the size of the drum. Its entire raison d'être is the fact that Cameron doesn't want to spend the large amounts of money he used to touring the far more elaborate (and, IMHO, vastly superior) original production...more's the pity.

It still didnt solve thr story issues, a vast improvement but still.....

Nope. It doesn't matter how elaborate the sets are; no decent story = no show.

Anyway, I'm delighted to hear that Kenwright will be producing. This show and that producer deserve each other. Maybe good old Bill will be the final nail in this misconceived show's coffin.

So we had the London production.... where ALW took every decision, argued with all the creative team, refused to have a note cut from his score, tried several music supervisors, did a recording with a full orchestra, decided he didn't like it, so redid it all again.... and got a bunch of reviews that said it was pointless.

Or the Australian production, where he had no input, let them do it their way without any interference... and received universally good reviews.

Hmm....

Yeah, completely agree. ALW's contradictory excuses never made/make sense. He tried to excuse the London production by saying he "wasn't on the case" due to his prostate cancer...but he wasn't at all on the case on the Oz production! Eh?

Are you sure, and if so how?

The first article about the tour (I think it was the first) back in May said this:

"Sources say the new production of Love Never Dies (tipped here last September) is pencilled to make its debut in January 2013 at the Churchill Theatre Bromley - Kenwright's co-production partner. It will then embark on a UK tour."

Kenwright does have more sense than people may think..

He'll have the last laugh!

it'll have rubbish tickets sales, poor reviews and the locals may say 'Should have booked tickets for hairspray'
