Yeah, but what has he done for the last 400 odd years? Sitting on his laurels if you ask me.

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.

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.

At Urinetown when the money was dropped above the audience confetti style, two landed on the woman next to me, and none on me. She offered me one of hers. That was pretty damn nice.

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?
