I think Mamma Mia is an international tour so its playing for about 10/11 weeks at the Palace Theatre in Manchester at the end of the year but thats the only venue in the UK unfortunately.

I cant comment on the cast of Beauty and the Beast because i dont see it til the end of October but it should be interesting as its not entirely a Disney show, UK productions are putting it on so i dont know how different it may be?

mama mia has only announced the palace for 12 weeks in manchester but it is going to announce 3 more uk venues

BATB tour will prob be cheap,hence it only doing 1 week in each venue.

I cant say that i have heard that its going on the West End. Its an eight month tour from the beginning of September, i think they've announced venues upto February and then they have still got to confirm dates after for Birmingham Hippodrome, Southampton Mayflower, Bristol Hippodrome and Liverpool Empire. Saying that, its going to be May/June time that it finishes so who knows, you could well be right.

The plan was originally to open it in London a couple of years ago, but it fell through due to lack of available theatres. However, regardless of whether it's going there, it'll still be advertised as 'Pre-West End' in the same way that Jekyll and Hyde and the first Footloose tour were - it's often used more as a marketing slogan in hope rather than a declaration of intent... re: West End shows touring
