The only thing I remember seeing was that Ben Richards did the workshop as the Sargent.

I am quite interested in this so may book tickets, though I know nothing about the source material (I have not seen the film nor read the book). It's just great to finally look forward to something fairly original playing in the West End. There's a song from the show called "Fight the Fight" on Michael Ball's new album ("Both Sides Now"). It's nothing extraordinary but is still quite good.

Who is Stuart Brayson, does anyone know his music?

Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!

One I certainly look forward to. Tim Rice is one of the best wordsmiths in the business.

I know people like Carley Stenson have been seen for this but as far as I know they didn't get any further.

I am eagerly looking forward to this more than any new show that's come to the West End for a long time. James Jones's novel is brilliant, the movie's a classic masterpiece and I think it is perfect material for a musical. I am a big fan of Tim Rice as a lyricist - don't know Stuart Brayson but always welcome new musical theatre composition.

Will be interested to learn more about casting but the show itself is enough of an attraction to me irrespective of who will be in it.

Of course, it may not live up to my expectations but I can't wait to see it!

Top price 69.50 (10 off in previews) plus fees. Think this will need a hell of a cast to compete at those prices. I dont think Tim Rice is enough of name to get Joe Public through the door

A line in this article says that Billy Zane is in negotiations to play the Burt Lancaster role.

Wow that is one dreary and long trailer. I'm seeing it out of curiosity and because I want to see just about anything new, but I really can't see its value as a promotional video. For people who have to pick one show, this is definitely not enticing.

interviewed Tim R about it today - and he's very passionate about it; stating that it's not based on the film at all and returns to the book as the source. Will put the interview up tomorrow (wednesday).

This show is going to need help. A lot is resting on casting to plump up advance, which I'm told is Billy Zane..... Ahem.

It had better be excellent because the title and casting isn't attracting the crowds so far so 5 star reviews are a must.

I dont think Billy Zane is a big enough name to draw people in, sure he is a name, but not sure he is a name people will pay out to see. Maybe his acting on stage is amazing, but based on his film work I have my doubts so not sure he will get glowing reviews.

Everything about this show reminds me of the infamous shows to have played the Shaftesbury in the 90's and 00's

At least it's new and not another Sondheim revival or Juke Box show.
