I'm guessing it will be small scale like the last tour. Just cover the majority of the set with black masking at the big venues like they did at the Hippodrome in Birmingham.

Actually the tour that went into the hippodrome was the full production with the exception of not touring the portals or trapdoors. The house, props, puppets and other set pieces were all original london and used on tour. Its not a show that was conceived to go into "big" venues. So nothing is covered - the staging is just reduced into that space.

Fiddler on the Roof and Beauty and the Beast also went to Cork a few years ago.

The reality is theatre mostly is run by a set of accountants looking at the +/- profit margins. There is no real sentiment to it. Its just a job to them.

In one sense theatre is like a supermarket store. The performers are the staff and the audience the shoppers. When they close down they don't invite all the old staff back just to go on the tills for sentiments sake. Nope - it closes, people move on and something else fills the shop space.

There have been numerous tours around the world and stuff. So its nothing particularly special that its closing, and after all I am sure another tour will pop up.

I am unsure why the piece of set that s causing the problem is supposedly being removed next week. Wjhy not get rid of it now? Its causing the show all sorts of bad publicity right now!

Because most likely they will need to construct something else to take its place. Maybe a flying piece, maybe a smaller truck. This will then need rehearsing, re-lighting etc. With most things so rehearsed and lit etc, you just can't remove it and carry on quite so easily.
