I'd really like to see this so I'm pleased it's transferring, although I can see why it perhaps wouldn't appeal to the masses. A bit of a gamble maybe, but an Olivier would be a big selling point...

I'd have liked to have seen Arthur Darvill (bit of a DW fan) but won't get to London before May. Oh well, I'd like to see Once again anyway because it's just beautiful but I may have to wait a while.

I seem to be in the minority that actually liked the Leicester production of this. It was a rather classy production imo, I can't imagine Barlow's music living up to the previous standard in musical theatre terms. I expect this to be mega cheesey. I've no idea what Weinstein is thinking with all these drastic changes! A few tweaks would have been fine I'd say.
Also, for me Julian Ovenden and Rosalie Craig were perfect as the leads.

In Topic: Chicago @ Curve Theatre Leicester

I've seen this twice (I won tickets to press night) and I really enjoyed it. My expectations weren't high, but I think this time Curve have managed to pull off something quite special.
I quite liked Verity Rushworth as Velma, it was a different approach, she seemed more vulnerable and naive than other Velma's, but I think it worked in this production.
Sandra Marvin completely steals the show though! Her When You're Good To Mama received the loudest applause and deservedly so.
Overall I prefer this production to the recent London (and touring) one. Yes, some of the costumes are bonkers, but I think you get a richer experience with the full visual staging.
And the circus scene is something to behold, especially when seeing it up close! (I was on the second row)
