According to the below article the show will transfer to Broadway in 2015. The production was also filmed in London over last few days for an American and Uk cinema release.

Having seen the show I can say the original music is superb and I feel this show will fit in to Broadway extremely well. Its a traditional big scale musical with a big cast and original Music.

Hopefully, it will eventually get a DVD release here. Intend to get the cast album.

Strange, it's basically a flop in the UK--I wonder if they plan to revise it at all.

I can't see this arriving on Broadway, hot air from Tim Rice, still I love to be on his royalty checks.

I wonder why they are doing this. It will just showcase how bad the leading actors are. How much chemistry they do not have. What would make this particular show so special. I saw it and found nothing memorable.

If for some reason it came, it would probably have different leads...

Having spoken to Tim Rice he is pretty determined to make this happen. Not so much for him but Brayson. The recording seemed to go well, two performances filmed with an audience one without. Personally I think the music and the emotional story of Pearl Harbour is superb.

They will need to sort the marketing out relies on people knowing about a movie the show isn't even based on.

Yes they are doing a live cast recording as we'll.

Read the reviews it received four and five star reviews from critics good by anyone's standards.

Intriguing. I thought there was lots that was good about the show, especially the original score, but much work needed on the book and script. Unappealing characters, and I didn't get much of a plot in Act One.

There has been lots of changes to improve the book in the last two weeks. Disagree about t plot of
ACT 1 it sets it up really we'll.

Shows was 2hrs 50 when started but reduced to 2hrs 40 but with introduction of overture and new scenes back at 2hrs 50. Most west end shows nowadays have a 20 minute interval this has just 15.

How do they do the famous beach scene? Stagehands throwing buckets of water?

With better direction (the original direction wasn't bad, just uninventive) this show could do nicely. It has an above average score (for a traditional musical) with a star making lead (Robert Lonsdale in one of the greatest musical theatre performances I've seen in ahwile) who should indeed travel (he was already on Broadway in the revival of 'La Bete").

The only thing a friend of mine (who is NOT an avid theatregoer) said to me after seeing it was that he thought the "gay stuff" was handled badly (he asked me if there were some elements of it in the book and left out of the movie--which there were from what I remembered.) He found it slow overall but liked some of the music. *shrug*

I'll admit to being perplexed by the reviews that this got - I saw it with a friend a few weeks back and was totally bored by it. The book needed a lot of work, the characters were unsympathetic (and the night we went 3 of the main actors were out), the music was forgetable and we were unsurprised that it had failed to find an audience. I was so disappointed, because it was a proper new show not a jukebox thing. I'd be interested to see how they change it for Broadway (I've no clue if I saw the London version before the last round of tweaks or not).
