I saw this one. Maybe I really do have a problem... O_O

I really enjoyed it and thought it was definitely worth the trip to London. The ENO always have such interesting programmes compared with most other West End shows. Show wasn't bad either. re: Anyone seen On The Town??? Go and see it, but be prepared to have 'New York New York' stuck in your head for at least two weeks. re: Anyone seen On The Town???

Why don't the ENO transfer it to a commercial house? rather than keep bringing back?

Do we think there would be a commercial market for this?

When you see the scale of the production, you'll realise why. This is a great show. Anyone know if the recording rumour is true. Apparently this christmas is going to be a DVD bonanza for musicals fans, now if only my boss would put his hands in his pockets and buy the DVD rights to some of them...

Ok well i got standby ticket 20 for the dress circle! so VERY happy with that!
As for the production.....meah its diff to say really, some numbers really stood out! Caroline O'connor was by far the star for me, and this is the first time i have even seen her, but she really was great! i found the Mics annoying as sometimes perople were to lound and others you couldnt hear at all due to the orchestra. What i will say is this...it is SO nice to see a musical the way it was intended! buy this i mean, a full orchestra and not a 5 piece band, interesting sets, at times outstanding choreography, the lighting was a bit off in places but generaly just a big propper ORIGINAL musical, not off the back of a film, or pop group, can we have more of these please!!!

I love the show--it sounds like ENO's revival works (I haven't read the reviews) which is amazing because none of the New York revivals without Jerome Robbins' original choreography havebeen hits. Who choreographed?

I love how the marketing is SOO blatantly gay oriented re: Anyone seen On The Town???
