Just thought it would be worth starting a thread about this, which has been mentioned before but looks like it's going to happen now (produced by Jamie Hendry Productions).

Yes London I believe (after seeing articles from December 2011), although it would be hard to think which theatre it would go to.

Jersey Boys or Newsies are rumoured for the Piccadilly after Dirty Dancing finishes its run in late February. I reckon they're waiting for a theatre to become available. The Savoy is an option unless Let it Be extends again or the Victoria Palace.

I doubt it is big enough to open at the piccadilly. I think we might see it go into a playhouse or somewhere small like the Garrick for a while before hoping to move somewhere bigger. Either that or it could do next years Chichester festival, like I believe Stiles and Drewe did with Honk and Just So.

I'm really looking forward to it. I hope it finds more success than Betty Blue Eyes, though I can't imagine it being anywhere near as good.

haha I hope it is a lot better than Betty which I found so dull.  That said the score was mostly good, the book let it down
