This production looks absolutely glorious in every way. The trailer is a work of art in and of itself too.

Stunning is right. Here's to hoping this makes a swift transfer to Broadway.

If I hadn't seen this twice in London - and now back across the Atlantic in the US of A - this video would make me buy a ticket.

(Oh, and this production, albeit not perfect, is spectacular)

Whoever directed and produced that trailer should be doing every single Broadway promo video from now on.

Any chance this could come to the US? After all The Palace just opened up.

Just brilliant.

European pop-operas are, and will remain, the hottest tickets in town.

More, please.


Why don't you go? Why don't you leave Manderley? He doesn't need you... he's got his memories. He doesn't love you, he wants to be alone again with her. You've nothing to stay for. You've nothing to live for really, have you?

I have to admit, I had the urge to applaud at the end of the trailer. Fortunately I caught myself before appearing foolish.

I have to agree that is one of the best commercial trailers I have seen for a theater musical in a very, very, veeeery long time!

Between that and the On the Town promo makes me hopeful that more shows will begin to do this.

HOW is this still not a movie? This promo just highlights how completely cinematic the show is... It's definitely the most movie-like and "modern" of all the big pop-opera/mega-muscial hits. Baffling.

The trailer IS beautiful, which is probably why it took such a long time to produce (whereas other musicals tend to chug out their trailers rather quickly). The production, however, although brilliantly directed, isn't as "grand" as the trailer makes it look.

A first rate trailer. The cast all looks great!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again (having seen them both) ... I liked Miss Saigon better than Les Miz.

It's a great trailer.
But having now seen this production twice. Unlike the original production, I found it suffers from the usual CamMac problem. It's over produced. It's only designed for people who know the score. Their is so much going on in the background, I thought it detracted from the intensity of the score. I know the score, inside out. But the people I went with, who didn't. Found most of it, difficult to follow.

After Les Miserables came out, Cameron Mackintosh said that he didn't want to make another movie right away as he had found filmmaking to be a bit more time consuming, plus I think with the time he has now, he should probably be getting Miss Saigon back onto the public's radar in order to gain enough interest in a film version.

Cameron Mackintosh normally has a better relationship with the Shuberts Organization, so I wouldn't put my money on a Nederlander theatre just yet.
