This show has 0 buzz, to the point I forgot it was coming! Has anyone heard any cast rumours?

This is one that will come and go within weeks -trust me. I've seen many productions of this and it just ain't gonna work today.

You really think it will die that quickly Mama? I mean the Duchess is really tiny and I can see it doing well if the reviews are good.

It will do the summer cos the Americans love it and will see it cos they wont believe its on in London but it will be gone come Sep/Oct.
I get so annoyed when naff shows like this will lure the tourists in and other, fab, much more deserving shows they will just ignore!

Because of The Fantasticks New York pedigree I look forward to seeing this show, I have not seen this before, til then I have an open opinion.

Has The Show played London before?

Yes twice. In the 70s and at the Kings Head in the 90s. Neither had good runs though the Kings Head version surprisingly sprung a movie version with its star Jonathan Morris from 'Bread'- awful movie it was too.
One for your granny this one!

Thanks for info on Fantasticks.

I saw Jonathan Morris, starring opposite Anita Dobson in Cinderella many years ago at the Orchard, Dartford.

They were desperate theatre days.
