One of the songs started playing on my mp3 player this morning and made me listen to the whole show. Is there any news of it coming to London? I thought someone would have done something with it over here by now (Leicester Curve, Menier, Donmar, NT, Sheffield, ...)

Then again, it's got a good story and good music, so probably wouldn't do very well over here :-(

I know I'm far from the only one who would love love love to see this done here, anywhere.

I saw it in New York and it is easily one of the most powerful shows I have ever seen.  The NT should do it.  It would also work well in the Menier or Donmar - if no commercial producer wants to do it.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Agreed, The Donmar had the rights but passed on it, the Menier would be perfect I think

I'm surprised the Donmar passed on it, maybe it'll end up at the Menier or perhaps the Dorfman when it opens in 2014.

I heard some rumours in October time that someone was ready to put a production on, but I assume that has fallen through as I haven't heard anything more about it!
