Its 'Fame 2'
It will return to fill empty theatres just as 'Fame' has done for the last 10 years. The current 'Fame' wont last much longer after this Shaftesbury season especialy after the slatting it got on opening. Great to see the Playhouse open again- gorgeous theatre.

I didnt say anything about Fame did i? I loved the original production at the Cambridge. It just seems to have had its day and i agree Footloose is a much better constructed piece. If the two of them keep theatres open for the forseeable future thats great.

i havent seen the UK production of Footloose but did see the Broadway one. i found it very slow and plodding. i hear this one has alot more life in it and it got great reviews compared to Broadway. I will go to the Playhouse asap.

The Broadway production was awful (i can still see florescent greens and pinks when i close my eyes argggggggh)

The UK production is a very sharp and well put together shows which ironed out all the problems of the broadway production.

And if the Broadway version can run for over 700 performances then so can the UK one.

Its opening date is Aug 17th at The Playhouse until 'TinTin' takes charge for a long Christmas season. Have they announce that it wil return for second seson at The Playhouse after 'TinTin'?
This is certain to follow in the footsteps of 'Fame' as a filler for unexpectedly dark theatres. Its nothing but a good thing.

grr Wicked its very annoying when your calling the show a filler, footloose is a Tony Nominated musical what got some great reviews.Yes its a fun teen show but its returning due to the fact that there is a huge fan base for this show.

This is a well put together Teen musical with some fantastic Choreography.
