Just booked for this in Manchester. Surprised to see so many good tickets still available considering how well known it is, and the "Christmas treat" factor.

It'll pick up during the autumn.  Slap bang in the middle of summer isn't a great time for ticket sales.

This show is getting a very rough ride here.  I saw it on Tuesday and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.  I'll admit that it's not perfect (how many shows are?), but it has much to recommend it and is well worth seeing!!   I would pay to see it again.

I saw the touring version that played at the Palace and it was decent with a good score, would have liked to have seen the Aldwych production.

The Aldwych production wasn't great. I thought it was over produced and, certainly on the night I went, suffered from a poor cast.  I think the revised touring productions have been far better.

I loved Tina Arena's version, but is that great song indicative of the rest of the show? Which of you saw it? Was it a dud? Is it coming back? I can't even find much in the way of reviews.

Fill me in  please :0)

I don't think it's likely to tour for a while as it's out to amateurs at the moment.

I think Sofia Escobar is getting a rough ride here.  I've seen several Christines over the years and I found Sofia to be one of the better amongst an excellent crop of actresses.  Rachel Barrell was fabulous too as was Olivia Brereton in the recent tour.
