I've heard rumours that stage ens wants to put this back into town!!!!!!!!

The current touring cast reviews have been better Than the 2011 tour!!

I can only guess it will go in after the tour but what venues are free ?!

Anyone know anything ??!!!!!!

Into the Comedy after Merrily maybe? Or the Playhouse if Spamalot closes?

The Playhouse and Pinter are too small, Maybe as filler if one of the bigger theatre become availble.

I fear Hairspray might struggle for longer than a month at anywhere larger.

As a short run of a few months would be fine, the show did well at the Shaftesbury so it would be work in a theatre of a similar size.

How well is Let it be doing? I think the Savoy would be good.

I would love to have it back in town, even if just for a few weeks, annoying the tour isnt coming too close.

Hasn't there been rumours of Hairspray returning in various guises ever since the Shaftesbury production closed?

When does the tour finish?

Every musical that plays the west end.. Then tours is 'rumoured' to return to the west end on here. Boring.

They've closed because they no longer sold tickets in the west end ..

I heard they closed originally because they didn't have the license to have 2 productions of Hairspray running in the country at the same time, rather than because of poor ticket sales.
