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!
Planned: Once (London)
