I got a hold of a copy of the film Broadway version, and I was pleasantly surprised. I think this show might have legs over here, as long as they don't make Killian Donnelly imitate Chad Kimball's performance, which over here would come across as 'Frank Spencer becomes a radio DJ'. Has some great choreography and a really fire-y score.
It will also be a "canary in the mineshaft" for shows previous deemed "too American" to come over like Newsies.
Perhaps it's because I was looking down on the doors from the bay doors
Even so from what I could see there's just enough wing space for actors to stand around. If I remember correctly the touring production had shacks on either side (and weren't they taken off for certain scenes?), the head statue, a fence e.g.
Surely the helicopter would be kept in the fly gallery anyway, thus making wing space immaterial?
