I see Big the Musical is finally coming to the West End in September for a short run. Its going to be playing at the Dominion theatre. Its the same production they played in Plymouth and Dublin a couple of years ago at Christmas time. For that production it had stunt casting and again its got stunt casting.
Jay McGuiness from Strictly and who stared in the Plymouth and Dublin production will be joined by a new cast that is Wendi Peters from Coronation Street TV presenter Mathew Kelly and Kimberly Walsh from Strictly and Girls Aloud.

Has anyone else seen this?
I just left at interval.

Awful. I can't think of anything worse I've endured over the past few years.

The performances are uniformly terrible. Not a good singer in the bunch. Sets are ugly. Music is beyond forgettable.

And the one memorable moment from the movie is horrendously boring and rushed.

Also go head on into the creepy subtext of the movie where a grown woman is trying to bang a child.

Thinking of seeing this when I go to London next month. Any other reports? I definitely don't want to waste an evening on something that enough people walk out of!
