i'm looking forward to "whistle" opening again, even though it won't be as good as the original i think it's a good show with some really good songs.

not alot of people enjoyed it when it first opened, wot's your views?

i saw the Kenwrite production on tour a couple of years back and i absolutly loved it! the cast was amazing and even the set was great...(this is kenwrite were talking about) i never saw the original london show but if this is the same i saw on tour its well worth going to see.

I saw the original London production and thought it was very good! The lyrics were very odd at times, but I thought the show was definitely worth seeing! (Even though it had live snakes in that one scene...)

It will play a limited engagement at The Palace theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue to fill up the gap between the Woman in White closure and the opening of Spamalot.

I saw the original in the West End, and very much enjoyed it -
as I'm sure did many hundreds of thousands of others during the show's two-and-a-half years!

I also saw the Kenwright Touring production 4 times over 2 years,
at different venues around the country, and enjoyed that too -
the singing was lovely.

This NEW West End production is based on the Kenwright Tour -
and has many of the same CAST.
Cast Names, & in most cases Biographies, can be found on the website kenwright.com

Current West End Whistle Leads who played the same roles on Tour include:
Tim Rogers (The Man)
Claire Marlowe (The Girl, Swallow)
Garrie Harvey (Amos, the lad with the motorbike).

The tour version is an insult to Steinman

i caught the original west end version and thought it was dreadful. the music was very mish mash and it all felt disjointed, nothign flowed to me.

the production, i found to be really tacky and over the top. the set never stopped moving, a constant stream of props was constantly in flow (cars, caravans etc..) it was syle (commercial west end dross) and no substance.

the tour does sound more interesting, because it is scaled down, but i would still have to face the music
