Apologies for double post, can I delete a post ?

Apparently not, but moderators can hide them if we spot them.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.

I'd love some more Disney in the West End.
Hunchback would be absolutely amazing - check out videos of the Berlin production on youtube.
Wow, I will look on YouTube. I love the hatchback, story and music.

Poppins was great because it was a British produced musical. Cameron was the brains behind it. Disney was the cash.

Menken tells me Newsies is not coming here and never will.

Disney are probably happy with Lion King.  It's sold very well for 11 years and is great for families. I think the show is dull beyond the first 5 minutes - but it's inherently theatrical and is a great event for kids.

Aida will never come here.

How you know so much?

Happy about newsies and aida don't think they would work over here but Tarzan or little mermaid would do great I'm sure although both would need fairly big theatres and doesn't look like any will be free for a while, maybe the Victoria palace isn't billy on its last legs !

Aida has been doing the amateur circuit recently and does have some good emotional songs, but is all a bit lightweight, well especially next to Verdi. actually Verdi got it right. The film that would seem perfect for the stage is Pinocchio -but then for anyone who saw Opera North's production of Jonathan Dove's gorgeous opera, anything after that would seem redundant.

Julie Taymor I think was developing Pinocchio at one point, it would interesting to see what she would done with it, I think it would be great if Pinocchio was an actual puppet created by either Basil Twist or Handspring.

I remember reading about Disney having a few projects in development such as Dumbo, Father of the Bride and Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland as potential musicals plus Shakespeare in Love which was planned to be a play co-produced with Sonia Friedman.
