Perhaps if you gave people more than 36 minutes to respond? I know I'm on the site pretty constantly, but other people seem to leave and have lives in between posts. Give it a decent amount of time. :P

we had it last year at the palace in Manchester and it was an amazing production .The set was pretty much the same as the west end set but the production is the broadway version of chitty(a lot more fun).

Chitty is still flown by the use of the crane arm and flys at the end of act 1 and end of act 2.

So the song list is the same as what appeared on Broadway

I dont think the car flies quite the same as in London from people who have seen it said. It does fly, but not out over the audience like it did in London.

The car doesnt go over the audience(it never really did it london though it only went out over the first couple of rows) but still looks very good.

At the last night of Guys & Dolls I was sat next to a woman who had just seen the tour in Bristol and was very disappointed that the car "didn't fly out over the stalls all the way to the Dress Circle like it did in London". Either she had seen a different show to one I saw at the Palladium or she had been heavily medicated...

"Murder is a very British thing, isn't it? I mean, it's almost like a hobby over there."
"Why do you insist you must hear the words? When you know I cannot give you words. Not the ones you need..."

I saw it in Bristol and it's awesome. I much preffered it to London. Some stuff is so much better, like when the car drives over the cliff at the end of act one, it looks amazing. It's also flown a similar way, except it does'nt rise up from underneath the stage like it did in London.

I hope they did replace think vulgar! I saw the show in London towards the end of its run and they'd put that god awful song in. i can't even remember its name. After listening to the CD since the day it was released think vulgar was one of my favourite songs..."and the guns are lined up...then what?...you're shot...in a vulgar grave" were fantastic lyrics.

Alas, I fear that it is wishful thinking!
