Just not my cup of tea re: Fame Coming Back?? And having only got rid of it recently after clogging up various West End theatres for 10 years, I can't believe that a 'revival' is being mounted already...

If the talks of 'Rent' really are true, it wouldn't be going into the Shaftesbury anyway. It may have been there before, but everything I've heard about a possible revival suggests they want a much more intimate venue.

Ah, Nosferatu, I think your quote at the bottom of your posts should read:

Monty PYTHON and not Monty PythonS.

There is nothing wrong with Fame,its a fun show and it introduces a lot of people to theatre.

The show also makes a mint in London(its also wanting to get back in to london before footloose returns) .

Though the sequal to Fame the musical is also slated to enter London soon.

At least Fame will break the shaftsbury curse, This show has made money in every venue its played.

Unlike most of the west end shows!!!

I've never understood why no-one has tried to put a long-runner (or otherwise 'popular' show like Grease or Fame) in there before. It would have been a perfect place for Les Mis (though the Queens is a Cam Mac house) or The Producers, even Miss Saigon could have played on there if slimmed down slightly; but the management seems to be attracted to the Lautrecs, Napoleons and Far Pavilions'. Laudable new projects all, but at this stage the theatre needs a long-running hit to help pay the bills. As you say, at least with Fame the theatre will be occupied, busy, and people employed...

(its also wanting to get back in to london before footloose returns)

See my first post... re: Fame Coming Back??

Footloose was a wicked show which did the teen musical thing better than Fame,Grease,dirty dancing etc

Fame will keep people in employment at the shaftsbury though which is good.

Oh yeah we forgot to say bye to Daddy Cool, how did me miss that(oh yeah same way we missed the show hehe)

UPDATE
Fame the musical will only play there for about 3 months but they ARE looking at taking Fame Forever in to the theatre straight after.
This is coming from someone in scotland who is in the world premier of Fame Forever at the Kings theatre in April

You're right !
Just an old French habit putting the plural form for collective nouns !
