12 weeks should be fine since it can make money over Christmas and February half-term, I do wonder whether one of the Chichester revivals will replace Cats from March or April.

Baz seems to think Aladdin will go into The Palladium from 2016 which would be the perfect theatre for the show.

Here's the news about 'Aladdin' possibly playing at the Palladium. I do think it's a great theatre for this show.

Aladdin as they say won't be here until Spring 2016 at the earliest. Cats could end up at The Palladium for a year or more if it proves successful.

Evita is confirmed to enter The Dominion for 8 weeks.

Great that these super tours are coming in to fill these large houses.

I can't wait to see Aladdin there. I hope I can make it to London. It looks like a nice show.

Theatres are starting to fill up now since Jeeves and Wooster is extending again, Sunny Afternoon is going into the Pinter and the Playhouse has Speed the Plow and Women on the Verge. Only the Apollo and Haymarket are free from September and I imagine they'll be snapped up soon. Might be difficult for any show wanting to come in unless they wait until late November when both the Wyndham's and Vaudeville become free.

I think Cats could easily extend at the Palladium until maybe September 2015 with a Christmas show like Elf playing from November to January then Aladdin or another big show taking over from February or March 2016. I imagine Disney will look at other theatres just in case they don't get the Palladium.

Isn't Urinetown moving into the Apollo this fall?

The Wind In The Willows (which ran at the Duchess last Christmas) is going to the Vaudeville after Rabbit Hole. So as it stands, only the Wyndham's, the Apollo (Urinetown isn't yet confirmed) and the Haymarket are still free for the later part of this year, though the Haymarket may well get Great Britain from the NT. There's also the Noel Coward; Shakespeare in Love is booking 'til October, and it may not extend.

Jeeves and Wooster has extended, which is surprising as there was talk that it was struggling recently. And it's going on tour in September.

Jeeves and Wooster I imagine is cheap to run, it's only three actors and a fairly basic set, I'm guessing something fell through for it to extend.

I forgot about the Noel Coward Theatre, I imagine if Shakespeare in Love doesn't extend, it'll be free from November.

When did Jeeves and Wooster extend and when to? I am surprised at the love for this, I thought this really would struggle.

This it takes 18-24 months to transfer a big show such as Aladdin.

Sunny Afternoon, could be the British Jersey Boys and run 10 years, I can see this being a big fat hit.

Wonder if Who's Afraid of Virginia Woofe transfers from Bath? Thought this would be a good fit for the Haymarket or Vaudeville?

Guess Playhouse is going to be dark between Speed the Plough and Woman on the Verge? This could be a good place for Wind in a The Willows for 6 weeks?

Jeeves and Wooster is only extending until January.

Virginia Woolfe probably won't transfer until next year since Tim Piggott Smith is doing King Charles III in the Autumn.

I can see Sunny Afternoon doing well but ten years is hugely optimistic, if it does even a year, it'll be a success.

The gap between Speed the Plow and Women on the Verge is only three weeks so nothing will likely go in.

Is this EVITA worth seeing? It's a Lloyd Webber I really want to see, as I have never seen a live production of it. It seems to be his most lauded work.

It's a good musical and is particularly wonderful if Eva is very well cast: seen some stunning Evas in my time.

Speed The Plow could always extend if it's a success- which I suspect (sales wise, anyway) it will be.

10 years for Sunny Afternoon?! I imagine it'll do well, but I don't think we can talk about that length of run quite yet.

Wind In The Willows is confirmed for the Vaudeville. Runs 27 Nov - 17 Jan,straight after Rabbit Hole which closes 22 Nov.

Virginia Woolf could always come in, but not 'til next year. Piggott Smith has Charles III 'til end of Nov, and Clare Higgins is in NYC doing A Delicate Balance 'til mid-Feb.

And there's always Chichester's Pressure which is the transfer I'm hoping for.

Pressure I think will transfer but I don't know if Autumn is likely with the lack of available theatres. Perhaps the Noel Coward or the Wyndham's as I can't imagine either going dark once Shakespeare in Love and King Charles III finish their runs should either not extend.

Sorry didn't realise Wind in the Willows has been confirmed.

I got a feeling that Shakespeare in Love is looking for a long run, I know this doesn't always work out in practice, but O wouldn't think Disney will back something that lasts only 3 months?

I really do believe Sunny Afternoon will be massive, has to get those stellar reviews again, it's in an intimate theatre, there is a big market for jukebox shows and I don't think The Kinks will be the exception here. The demographic that will see this are the over forties that are burdened by kids and mortgages, so have the disposable income and they aren't the people who would queue on TKT's. Hopefully this will be the show that closes Thriller and Mamma Mia and get decent theatres back in circulation.
