Rumour on WOS that this is happening via ATG with a short tour before hand.

Anyone heard anything? (im looking at you Anythinggoes)

Yes it is highly expected. Lindsay is yet to officially sign on and they are casting the other roles as we speak and are hoping for a few other names to fill the other roles.

The show is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Set to open at The Savoy in March/April.

Let It Be is expected to transfer to Playhouse.

DRS is a decent show so it should do fine in the West End, interesting that its touring first rather than opening straight away. I'm guessing Spamalot is closing if Let it Be is going to the Playhouse, its a shame the Playhouse has become the home for filler shows rather than plays.

2014 is shaping up to be a good year for theatre with Miss Saigon, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels plus new plays like Fatal Attraction and The Full Monty and rumoured shows like Finding Neverland, Made in Dagenham and Kinky Boots.

It would be neat if they record a cast album since the new opening number that was written for the US tour has never been recorded.
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

Who is directing? It was rumored originally Jerry Mitchell was recreating his choreography and Jack O'Brian's direction.

I presume it's Jerry Mitchell again because he has that production company thing with ATG.

Robert Lindsey would be fantastic in this - but who would play Freddy? Damian Humbley springs to mind as the obvious Norbert Leo Butz looky-likey and he did an okay job of the slapstick in Lend Me A Tenor.

I saw this on Broadway and loved it. Comedy masterclass from John Lithgow!
