The Grandage West End revival was poor tho

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.

Yet it lost money

an obvious but not altogether bad choice. he was good in witches, ok in chess and just about passable in jekyll. che could suit him as the role doesnt have to have a power belt voice.

eva is the key role...heres hoping for someone decent

Oh dear God. He really was dreadful in Jekyll and Hyde and very poor in Blood Brothers.

There was talk of Evita going into the westend for a filler...

I hope it doesn't happen...
