The Bodyguard doesn't count as a big' show, it hasn't been open for long.  One Man Two Guvnors hasn't been a 'big' show since Corden left.

A Chorus Line is closing in January anyway, and I don't think it really counts as a 'big' show either...  Mamma Mia's not in one of the biggest theatres, is it?

It looks to me as if it must be Billy Elliot or, more likely, WWRY.

Just noticed Billy has extended its booking period by six months, maybe sales have improved and its staying put a bit longer.

According to Wikipedia, it's
Apollo Victoria 2500 Seats
Palladium 2302 Seats
Drury Lane 2220 Seats
Lyceum 2100 Seats
Dominion 2001 Seats
Prince Edward 1618 Seats
Victoria Palace 1517 Seats

So I wouldn't say that the VP qualifies as one of the biggest theatres. My bets are on ACL or WWRY (which I hope will not be the rumouring show)

Wicked isnt a sell out, and I have seen offers for I think the first time lately but I dont see it closing anytime soon.  ACL fits really, although a BE closing notice this year wouldnt be a shock

But the A Chorus Line revival is not really a "big" musical to the extent i think it will be. I can imagine it is WWRY

I think we can rule out Wicked, Charlie, Phantom and Les Mis... Other than that, it could be any show to be honest

A Chorus Line is closing in January anyway, I don't think WE Producer would be making a tweet like that if it was just about ACL.
