Please dont say cats should come back coz it shouldnt.
It played london for many years and toward the end became very stale and dated(like starlight and phantom).Cats should stay away for many years untill the time calls for a revival.

It would be nice to see the large production of sunset back though.

Also Rent has to come back but with a decent cast this time,its such a shame it diddnt run a long time on its original stint in london,Young people need to see this show.
The show is touring the UK next year so maybe it will head in to london after its tour.

Even though it diddnt play london 1st time round(it played stratford)but i would love to see Carrie come back revamped.Its workshopping this sept for a new production ,fingers crossed it works.

Cats looked a bit stale when i saw it on tour the other year. I have great memories of it, but think its time it was rested for a while.

Bring on Rent - having just seen the film I MUST see it on stage!!

I must admit being a cats maniac, it is definitley not up to scratch at the momnet and doesn't really compare to shows such as Wicked Les Mis and Ave q! O ye Miss Saigon would be a great comebac!

Miss Saigon, Woman In White, Follies and Company Definitely!
...What happened next, was stranger still, a woman breathless and afraid, appeared out of the night, completely dressed in white. She had a secret she would tell, of one who had mistreated her. Her face and frightened gaze, my mind cannot erase...But then she ran from view. She looked so much like you...

Our House
Witches of Eastwick
Taboo

I reckon the Menier could do a pretty good production of Bat Boy and it would work much better in the smaller space. They won't of course, and I'd much rather see them stage new works, but maybe in 10 or 20 years...

Funny, I was just thinking about this earlier! My first one would have to be Miss Saigon (as I have yet to see it), followed by Oliver and RENT.
I feel a bit bad I couldn't contribute anything new to the thread. =]

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

Chess, I thought that this was a great show and deserves to live again. Also if the brng back Sunset please put LuPone back in the title role. I know its a long shot but worth it.

WITCHES OF EASTWICK. It was one of the best shows i have seen in years. Very funny, very easy going, heartwarming and life afirming with moving, funny and solid songs and great sets and performances.

Sept 11th killed it off. I'd bring that back NOW.
