I'd wager that this isn't TKTS' choice, but the producer offering them the tickets.

How well is this show doing? It seems to have very little buzz about it, but they haven't thrown any stunt casting at it, or started papering from what I've seen.

I don't think it would do well here at all.

I accidentally opened the first page of the Book of Mormon thread, a lot of people said the exact same thing before it arrived http://forum.whatson...book-of-mormon/

Powerhouse Disney promotion, great choreo, catchy numbers, affordable set and running costs... I think it could be a hit easily.

I don't think they'll bring Aladdin over for the same reason that the Rogers and Hammerstein Cinderella never crops up: 1/4 of the theatres in the land do it every Christmas. The general public won't pay West End prices for "the same" story when they can catch it for 15 quid with the family.

I wouldn't judge it too hard on that performance, there are still several weeks till it opens.

I remember seeing Rock of Ages perform at West End Live a while before they opened, it was rubbish. 1000x better come previews.

Birmingham will be royally Avenue Q'd out by the end of this. This production is going to Litchfield which isn't that far outside the city (just a little further than Wolverhampton) as well as at the Alex, and The Old Joint Stock theatre in the centre of Brum is doing a production in the summer too (already completely sold out).

Re: The puppets. I am 99% sure they are the same as the ones used at the Upstairs at the Gatehouse production, some dodgy photoshop has gone on with the poster so I wouldn't pay too much attention to that.
