Oh has it replaced it? I thought it was just an additional song, I really like Now That I've Seen Her. Looking forward to seeing this, I have never seen it before so at least I won't be able to compare it with the original. Does sound like it is the touring production going in though, I assummed it was going to be a new version

Will be interested to see how this is staged this time.  Technology has come on in leaps and bounds since the original production and I am sure they will make use of this.  If the Les Mis and Phantom redesigns are anything to go by it has the potential to be amazing.

Yes, love the song Now that I've Seen Her. Hope Maybe is an addition and not a replacement. Really looking forward to this revival though - one of my favourite shows. May 2014 seems such a long way off - still must not wish my life away - LOL.

fond memories of sitting in drury lane for the "proms " matinee performance they ran prior to the opening and being amazed by the "moving lights" whizzing around the pros arch!" LOL

Really hope it's not based on the last tour. I found it disappointing with clunky scenery and overcrowded staging .The original was one of the first shows I saw in the west end and it holds special memories

I wasn't pre judging the show.. Was just saying I don't find the prospect exciting.. At the expense of a new show going into the PE
