Stage Ents are planning to re-open Sister Act at The Shaftesbury for Summer 2011 as revised version based on the Broadway show which opens Spring 2011. It all depends on the success of Broadway.

The Shaftesbury is a lot smaller than the Palladium and easier to fill, but I'd rather see something new. When Joop van den Ende has an idea in his head ...

Hmmm i dont think this will happen at all.
Also they have no idea how Flashdance is gonna do, if it's anything like Grease or Fame (which its far better than both) it could run awhile
Namo i love u but we get it already....you don't like Madonna

And its still a fair number of seats to fill, for a show that pre whoopi wasnt a hot ticket.

Still I like the show and would be happy if it found a new home - or went on tour.

It's not difficult to create something better than Fame ... and that just keeps going.
Arlene Phillips is doing the choreography for Flashdance... might be interesting.

I really cant see this happening either. many shows over the years have closed and a promise sent out by the producers it will return and nothing happens.

What are the chances of Hairspray returning to the Shaftesbury?

Sorry JKW, i read that wrong.
If Bway has any sense they will revamp everthing to do with that show, including the set
