This leaves me with the question:
Should I see it before it closes?

I could go Tuesday.

Has any other show ever closed so quickly...? Is there a new record to break?

Im sure many shows before have closed earlier in London (DSS closed after a few weeks).I think the closing of this will get a lot of worldwide press attention due to the fact it was a big musical

WOOHOO!

Next, the New London has to stay dark until the RSC bring 'Hamlet' into town, RIGHT? Or, y'know, some limited run of something that can be easily kicked out before the RSC bring 'Hamlet' into town. ^_^

RSC are booked into the Novello for late Autumn. I doubt they'd run two houses, though with the way Hamlet has sold, if they can keep the cast together, then they would have a huge commercial hit if it ran with nothing else in rep at the New London.

Is the Euro-whatever show not planning on running very long then? Glad to hear the RSC are booked in; think they'd run 'Hamlet' in rep with 'Love's Labour's Lost', or just force Tennant to Dane it up eight times a week?

Although they could be teasing us and send 'Taming Of The Shrew' in or something. re: Its all over for Gone With The Wind

'Eurobeat Almost Eurovision' is only playing a 9 week (11 week option) season at the Novello. Im pretty certain that the RSC will be invited back there to repeat the smash season they had there last year. Its already announced its London return this autumn it just needs a theatre- how convenient!!!

Not surprised that GWTW is closing though I thought it would last until at least September.

As to what should go into The New London next, perhaps the London transfer of August: Osage County or the Chichester production of Calender Girls
