Just a few dates, Woking, Wimbledon and a season in London at Sadlers Wells in September.
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 saw a tour (and I think I was at SADMs Palace) in the late 1990s and found it a bit dated: dream ballet, spit hitting the fan etc.

I think the score is wonderful but until someone tweaks the book a little I can't get excited. Weren't the National going to do a touched up version a few years ago? Shame it didn't happen.

I adored the last tour (i think it was late 90s) and loved that they kept the traditional choreography, design etc.

I know the new tour is going to the Manchester Opera House (grrrrrrrr)

Will that UK tour actually be the same production which is touring in Europe (am going to see it in Dusseldorf beginning of July) and which will be at the Sadler's Wells in July/August?
Just wondering since that production is to go to Athens in September after London according to this website.
