I love this show.. I've done it twice and both places extended and had sold out crowds.. It's so much fun to perform and just rocks out.. I'm glad it's coming back!! RAVE ON

They must have cut the size of the show in half! THE DUCHESS THEATRE!!! my god its one of Londons smallest theatres! Buddy started at the Victoria Palace -nearly 2000 seats then to the Strand-1200! Hows Buddy gonna fit into The Duchess? scuse the pun vicar!!!

Was there a special offer on exclamation marks, lovey? You seem a bit free with them. re: Buddy comes back!

I never saw 'Buddy', but I really enjoyed 'The Hound Of The Baskervilles' and am saddened it's closing early. It was pretty much along the same lines as 'The 39 Steps', only it was like the lesser accomplished but more endearing cousin of 39. Hohum...

'Baskervilles' is to tour later this year to smaller venues much like the Duchess-i imagine Cardiff,Bath nothing definate yet. Buddy was one of the first biog/jukebox musicals when it opened at the Victoria Palace in 1990 and every one in the theatre at the time thought it would be a disaster- wrong, it ran 11 years and is now on its way back. Not the best of shows but a fun evening and i wouldnt mind seeing it once more.

I hope 'Baskervilles' does tour, especially if it comes through Bath. It wasn't exactly revolutionary, but it was just SO MUCH FUN!

I don't think I have much interest in 'Buddy'. How long do you suppose it'll be running for? Is it a limited engagement, or will they just wait and see how it goes?

It is Limited yes but you know that means nothing for a show like this. The crowds wil flock and in a small house like this it could be unLimited! At least its not a dark house for the Summer! Weez if you aint seen it give it a go if have a free 'slot', tho comeing from Bath theres proberbly a lot more at the top of your list!!
