The Royal Festival Hall will be reviving the 1989 production of Wizard of Oz throught the summer, it will be the same production, including the same director, which was in leeds in 2002! I'll be anticipating this! Anyone heard anything on casting yet?

Is it for sure a 100% re-mount of the RSC version, or just using the RSC script? Mark Thompson designed it for the Barbican, and Michael Vale is who's attached to this production.

Almost all productions of the show, both in the UK and abroad, now use the RSC version. Its a shame the RSC dont bring its original production back- it was pretty wonderful and a shame it only played the Barbican without transfering.
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

I knew about the RSC script, the question was if it was going to be a remount of the 1987-1989 Barbican staging. I wish I could find more pictures of that production.
