Ghost closed because it wasnt making money and was struggling to find an audience. Viva Forever just happened to be the show that replaced it

Lord of the Rings is an interesting one. A lot of the technical people behind it view it as a "concord moment", the pinacle of technical theatre that hasn't been supersede since. Going round Autograph sound they have more pictures of that show than any other.

#230650 Singin' In The Rain - West End 2012

Posted theatre_kirsty on 26 July 2012 - 09:16 PM

I saw the show for my first time at the wednesday matinee. was second row of stalls and loved it. I'm not usually one for old hollywood style musicals but i loved it for its simplicity, its brilliat cast and the dancing. The dancing was incredible! Everyone was on top form. I think I may be a little in awe of the Strallen family. I had previously seen Summer and Zizi in LND and Dirty Dancing but had never seen Scarlett and wow!  how can so much talent exist in one family?

Adam Cooper and Daniel Crossley were great as Don and Cosmo, really funny. and Katherine Kingsley as Lina Lomont was also really hilarious. It was so hot on Wednesday too that I didnt even mind getting totally and utterly soaked by them all in the finale. A really fabulous show and I would love to go and see it again!

Whilst I understand where shetlander is coming from, I personally didn't find priscilla to supply a good story, any real emotion, actors were ok and the set actually (if you take the bus away) isn't anything special

Anyway, back to SITR. Cd out middle of August and available to order on dress circle

It's all a matter of opinion really, I'd say personalky SITR is miles better than Priscilla which I'd have to put as one of the worst jukebox shows. Whatever you think in the end it's definitely worth seeing as its the best production of the show I've seen

I got wet front row tonight, thoroughly enjoyed it! I thought the chemistry between the 3 leads was wonderful, and Flora Dawson as Lina was great too. The only thing that slightly spoiled the seats for me was not being able to see their feet during the tap numbers, but the stage isn't really that high. The getting wet part was fun!

#229882 Dreamboats & Petticoats To Close

I saw the touring version on Thursday in Sheffield and thoroughly enjoyed it,  I do think the fact that there have been two tours of it whilst showing in the West End must have some impact on sales. I get down about two or three times a year to see a West End show and would never see one that I can see on tour, from the point of view of cost if nothing else.
