Singin has had a great run and should do well on tour but I'm unsure about The Commitments, it doesn't sound like something that would work as a musical.

See, I can see it working, but not for a long run. The film has been forgotten. I'd want to see it but I can't think many would. But obviously, it's a bit early to judge it. Viva Forever appeared to be a success on paper and hasn't been, so until opening night, we might get anything.

Not my type of show really, but then again I think this will make a great show and will challenge my opinions.

A lot of people on here were very negative towards Singing In The Rain and said it would be lucky to last 3 months, the show went on to get great reviews, although the show didn't do as well as it should with awards, the show did have stunning performances, score and some of the performances were in the excellence of superlative.
