Anyone know of any deals for this for Wimbledon? I know of the Love Theatre one, and last minute did a deal a few weeks back. Any other current offers?

Thanks!

Any idea if more dates are being announced?? surprised it has no Irish dates? normally the Bord Gais theatre in Dublin gets all UK tours, only show's currently touring it isn't getting is Rocky Horror and Ghost! dont like rocky horror so not bothered but would love if ghost came.

The weaker songs were BALL OF WAX and LIFE TURNS ON A DIME. Both new songs have similar lyrics, indeed keeping the old titles as lyrics within them. They're now called YOU GOTTA LET GO and (still) LIFE TURNS ON A DIME, but is a different song. There are lyric changes around different songs, particularly in SUSPEND MY DISBELIEF/I HAD A LIFE, and I CAN'T BREATHE is not in it. The music to that song is present with an alternate version of UNCHAINED MELODY over the top if it. There is a different Overture too.

I saw the show on Broadway a few times and spoke to the actor who sand You Gotta Let Go.  An amazing story as the songwriters wrote the song for his voice.  He was shocked that he got the role and that they were writing a song base on who was cast.  I'm glad they removed I Can't Breathe it's just not needed.   I saw the show in Manchester as well and loved it from the first note.

I saw the show in London, with Rebecca T. What is the appeal of the show?? Awful songs (they mainly blend into one). Predictable plot (even if you've not seen the film). Help me understand its appeal!

He had no choice to leave...he saw a specialist and his voice needs treatment and rest. He hadn't even learnt the show when he became ill before losing his voice.....it was during rehearsals that this all happened.
