Disagree; it had its detractors amongst the public (though to this day it remains the most highly praised of any of ALW's productions by the critics), but I loved it. Thrilling cast, gorgeous design, beautiful orchestrations. Would love to have it back in town.
As for Kenwright's tour, it's so cheap you may as well just sit at home listening to the cast recording. At least two numbers are mimed and last time the orchestra was half a dozen tops.
