Ones that spring to mind

Next To Normal
Grey Gardens
Curtains

Jenna could be a fabulous Little Edie in Grey Gardens. I just feel that a UK audience wont get the show as the documentry is not known over here at all. Act 2 would be totally wasted on an audience that knows nothing of the real story

In Topic: Dreamgirls - West End?

I would be very surprised if we ever get a production of Dreamgirls in the west end, or even here in the UK. Im sure someone will correct me if im wrong, but arent there huge issues with the original producing credits or something to do with Michael Bennets estate, that has stopped it coming to London??

In Topic: From Here To Eternity, Shaftesbury Theatre

Announcing an April closing seems a strange move. Obviously its not doing well, but why delay it so long? January - March are bleak months for any production, let alone one that's not making money. I know its included in Get Into West End Theatre, but again, thats only till mid Feb on reduced prices.

The Shaftesbury is way too big for The Pajama Game, unless they get a very big name to lead it, and even then its not a title that sells on name alone. Its not a classic by any standards. Whoever plays Bebe will definitely be better than Ulrika Jonsson was in the Simon Callow/Birmingham Rep production. That transferred  and bombed at the Victoria Palace after a few weeks
