Open at the Duchess for a limited run (1st Feb to 16th March), before The River moves in.

There was talk a few months back of it being the original Broadway cast, I hope that's still the case.

Oliver Southgate producing? IF so, I'm pretty sure it's the Broadway cast.. a rumour of this coming in was going around for a while and I remember him blogging about it stating that the reason it was taking so long was to ensure that they could confirm the Broadway cast.

gabfree407, the title of the show is [title of show].

I bought tix for this yesterday.  Got a phone call from Nimax today saying that the tix should not have been on sale, as the show has not confirmed yet.  So don't uncross those fingers quite yet...

Don't see the tix (back) on sale for this... guess it's unlikely to be happening at the end of this month now!

Not sure if anyone has watched the recent Broadway Chatterbox with the cast, but they talked quite a lot about the potential London transfer. Apparently it is going to be 3 of the 4 originals (I assume minus Susan Blackwell, as it was Hunter, Jeff and Heidi being interviewed). The impression I got was that it is definitely going to happen in 2013 but it' not official yet, so they don't know exact dates. They also mentioned that they weren't going to alter much at all in terms of the references to appeal to British audiences, preferring to keep it authentically American - which can only be a good thing.

As for who they can get for the 2nd female role, I have no idea who could step in!?
