Your clueless. Charlie sells out at weekends... Every show struggles in September , then picks up in October .
Shrek was discounting from the beginning of the run, Charlie is obviously selling sufficiently enough that they don't need to.

The irony that you call me clueless, all whilst typing "your" :rolleyes:  Can't make this up!

You're welcome Sam22. :)

I love the cast recording! But I think it really helps to know what's going on on stage... There is so much happening in the opening number that is hard to get without seeing it... I also think that songs like "In This Corner" are probably hard to listen to, when you don't see the action involved...

I absolutely adored the show and I listen to the cast recording a lot now... I really hope I can make it back to Broadway to see it again with this cast! (And I really hope they bring it to London which would be a lot cheaper for me... ^^)

The glass elevator will eventually fly over/around the stalls and is still being worked on.

If that's the case, they'd better get on with it. They've got 3 weeks and counting before I'm there ;)

Can't believe what great shape the show is in already.
A few sound balancing issues, might have been as I was second row, but the band overpowered often.
And the aforementioned flying fork.

Huge audience reaction, amazing choreography, Stephan Ashfield is close to stealing the show, his timing was perfect. Cast is excellent top to bottom.

All around me people were wanting to see it again. It's clearly a hit.

Other than to the delfont room I've not been in the prince of Wales in years (I think I saw rent and maybe west side story there) so I was pleasantly surprised at what great condition the theatre is in and a total abundance of loos.

Biggest surprise, 3 full page ads for the Mormons in the programme.

On the basis that, as per the broadway definition, a flop is a show that doesn't recoup it's original investment
All the ones mentioned above are flops - ask their investors

My apologies, dreamboats and petticoats did recoup its £876 production costs
