The ad for the run in Manchester has a big 'Prior to West End' button on it... confirmed or wishful thinking?

Well funny you should mention that but if dd at the picc doesn't work and so far two men and a dog haven't booked and the dog wants a refund therefore 9 to 5 could be in there in October thru feb

atg have it waiting in the wings for any theatre of theirs that can house it (e.g. savoy, piccadily, phoenix) that pops up free.

It was so good in New York, I really hope it does get a run in the West End.

If they price it well (£10, £20 and £30) it might last a few months.

It is evidently a cheap touring show (designed for that very purpose). It provided nice diversions when I saw it in Richmond.

Thinking to even bring shows like this into the WE is what is rotting away at the core of musical theatre.

I doubt they'd set prices that low, even Spamalot has £59.50 tickets and £75 premium seats although that always has discounts,

Well it does annoy me.

I think musicals (in particular) have allowed themselves to be degraded and eroded.

This attitude of "fillers" and half baked and ill conceived plans and totally misjudged decisions is,
Why we had Viva Forever
Why A Chorus Line is closing 6 months before it was supposed to
And why Merrily We Roll Along has "more 5 stars than any other musical in WE history" yet is also possibly the "worst ever transfer decision in WE history" and the "most given away tickets in WE history"

Do not get me wrong, I liked it.

9to5 was fun and well performed (Natalie Casey was off the night I went)

But it just has no place in a WE house.

Not in the current form it is in.
