I really enjoyed the concert performance of Little Women last year & would like to see that as a fully fledged show.

Apologies for quoting myself & dredging up a really old thread, but it seems I'm going to get my wish!

Guildford School of Acting are putting on Little Women in March, both in Guildford and at the Union, in rep with Chess.
Union Tickets here
GSA Info here

So, not quite West End, but I'll be going nonetheless.
I saw the GSA production of RENT last year and it was pretty impressive.

It's worth mentioning in full, in case people weren't aware of the concert you talked about, that the production of Little Women is not the already known musical, but a new version by Steven Luke Walker (the concert production of his version was at the Playhouse Theatre a couple of years ago). It's beautiful & both shows are set to be quite fantastic if the previous and current graduates are anything to go by!

There are a few versions of Little Women.  I saw the Broadway one with Sutton Foster - and really liked it. I'm surprised it hasn't had much of a post-Broadway life.

I can add another show to the list, as I finally got Big Fish's cast recording. After listening to it, I got Be the Hero stuck in my head and enjoyed all the other songs. I also couldn't resist watching Daffodils on YT, which looked beautifully.

Even though the show closed on Broadway after only 120 performances, I'd love seeing the show in the West End.

I'm behind, I didn't realise Big Fish has closed already!

I'd still like to see Next to Normal, Side Show and Bonnie & Clyde
