I wish Pirate Queen had made it to the West End as the music sounds lovely on the cast recording. Not having seen it I don't know why it didn't work on stage.

Betty Blue Eyes should have much more successful - brilliant show.
Backbeat - probably too much of a play to succeed when most folk went for the music.

Marguertie - As above, think some of the songs were great, liked the story, loved the cast, with tweaks I think it could be a great show, gorgeous music, though I know it was revived last year I didnt see it
Martin Guerre - Saw the musician-actor version of this and really liked it

Flops I'm interested in - Lestat, the pirate queen, dance of the vampires, Moby dick, Martin Guerre, batboy (even though it has a life in student productions), the beautiful game, lend me a tenor, gone with the wind, drowsy chaperone in UK. Didn't even get off the ground so technically not a flop but I'd give a right arm to see Jim Steinmans Batman musical! I'd also love to see the current broadway flop Hands on a Hardbody come over to the UK where I think it would do better!
I'd love to see Dance of the Vampires over here, but only if it was like the German/Austrian version (Tanz der Vampire) which is an amazing show!
Seen (concerts, etc): Willemijn Verkaik "As I Am" solo concert at the AFAS Circustheater (2012), West End Eurovision 2013, Rachel Tucker at the St James Theatre studio, Scott Alan at the O2, Andrew Lippa at the St James Theatre
