According to an interview with the Evening Standard, Cam Mack is planning revivals of both Moby Dick and Martin Guerre, the former for the US, and the latter for the West End (at least, that is how it is being reported).

I guess with the Les Mis film and the looking likely Miss Saigon film, Boublil and Schonberg will be big names again, and I'd warrant big enough to generate interest in a year's worth of Martin Guerre at the Gielgud.

Moby Dick on the other hand... seems a little odd.

Moby Dick I think is being in a pub theatre, perhaps The Landor? Martin Guerre I like but I think it would struggle in the West End, I liked to see a UK tour.

Not sure if the Landor production is the same as the one that is being talked about here, as it implied as US tour, though the Landor are trying to do one.

I agree Martin Guerre should be a UK tour. Oh I miss it!

The Landor scheduled Moby Dick last year and had to cancel due to "rights issues". I'd love to see it again, I thought it was fun. Flawed, but fun.

I'd rather he focused on bringing Miss Saigon back to the West End for definite...

The Landor production wasn't cancelled due to Rights Issues - more to do with a coke snorting producer who ran off with the shows budget!
This is my street, I smile at the faces I've known all my life, They regard me with pride.
