Sir Cameron looks to be topping up his pension fund with this one.  A large swathe of the Grand Circle priced at £47.  Even cheapest seats are £29.50.

Listening to the OLC again.  One of my favourites.  I'm not sure if these lyrics are inspired, clunky, in poor taste, or all 3:

(from "Let Me See His Western Nose")
With these two little diamonds to bait
My hooks
I'll book us a cruise - "Boat-people"
Deluxe
Don't worry 'bout the sharks out in the
Mekong bay
The pirates taking us are more scary any
day

I registered for priority booking but didn't receive an e-mail. :angry:

So thanks for the link, guys.

Just booked and am happy!
If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

Did you phone the BO for a logges? Ive never been able to figure out how to book them online as they dont come up on the seating plan.


As opposed to clicking on the images of the different areas, use the drop-down box where it says Block and the option for 'Boxes & Loges' should be there

So apparently there are still casting notices being sent out looking for both Kim and The Engineer, according to BroadwayWorld. Further auditions will be held end of September/beginning of October. I guess that implies that Chris and other roles have been cast - but there are no mentions of who they might be. Rehearsals don't start until March 10th, 2014 according to the article so they're not short on time!

Full article can be found here: http://www.broadwayw...in-NYC-20130904
Somebody crowd me with love, Somebody force me to care,
Somebody make me come through, I'll always be there, As frightened as you, of Being Alive.

If some of the names in the mix for The Engineer turn out to be true then no way Cameron would get to transfer them to Broadway without AEA having a historical battle recreation!

And I don't just mean that jokey westendproducer tweet.

I have seen both the original version in London and the latest version directed by Laurence Connor in Utrecht (Holland) last year (the show played there for over 6 months).

The set is very "realistic" - more compact, but darker, with small crowded houses and streets. You can almost "feel" how poor the people are. It is difficult to explain, but I was *very* impressed with this production. Although I love the original one, I actually prefer the new version!

Sets still roll on and off stage, the Cadillac is still there, in fact, the only thing that is missing are the "curtains" at the sides of the stage and the "real" chopper.  

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there were projected cartoons on the background during American Dream.

The chopper is a projection, but  the effect is really cool. The surround sound of the blades was so loud I almost bounced out of my seat. Definately still a showstopper!

For those who want to see what it looks like:
