This is good news, I really hope it happens. It could sit in a lot of the smaller playhouses easily.

I reckon the St James will be pushing hard for this, as it would put them on the map to become a feeder to the bigger West End theatres.

The show already has commercial producers behind it so it's not a surprise they want a future life for the show.

Atg want to transfer it in Sep!

September would work since Jenna Russell is doing Mr Burns at the Almeida straight after Urinetown. Wonder what theatre though? Perhaps the Playhouse since 1984 is only running until July, the Harold Pinter and the Duke of Yorks are free from late September so they're also possibilities,

I suppose for people like us, we can get better discounts online but for tourists I imagine its really useful to get tickets for a show they may have not gone and seen. the TKTS booth in New York always has queues even though you can if you're savvy enough get discount codes to get cheaper tickets to the show you want,

Imagine that day though, a new show at Her Majesty's. No Chandelier, no Dry Ice. Its a very strange thought picturing something like Priscilla in that theatre!

Her Majesty's has had hits before Phantom, the original production of West Side Story and Fiddler of the Roof had good runs there, it would probably need a refurb first though . Seeing Once at the Phoenix was a strange experience as Blood Brothers had been there so long.

I think Phantom needs a lick of paint... and that dressing room set needs an oiling....


The last refresh Phantom had was the sound system, who looks after the show? I assume its Really Useful rather than Cameron Mackintosh who has been tinkering with Les Mis since it opened.

I don't think Les Mis has to advertise to be honest.

Sadly I don't think we'll ever be rid of it, or Phantom.

True, its like The Mousetrap, both are still running because they've run so long, it would great to see a new show at Her Majesty's but I don't see it happening for a long long time.
