Why do these shows always fall down on the book and characters ? God knows they have enough development time.

Sounds like a GHOST to me - wonderful visuals, weak book and songs that do nothing.

Surely Charlie will last at least 3 years but a great venue for it, but would it have demand to fill such a Big theatre 8 times a week.

I think Charlie is going to struggle over summer, if I'm honest. I think they picked the worst time open it - schools are closing for the summer now. With Shrek, pretty much every night had several schools there and must of brought a fair bit in for them.

I see it the other way round. Summer is perfect. Kids on holiday, parents looking for things to do. Then schools go back and they get a 2nd wind of school trips.

Shek was a disaster financially

Charlie will run but for how long?
It opened totally at the wrong time
Wasn't ready
Still recovering from the bad word of mouth at previews
Poorly produced
Recoup?
Who knows
