Saw this last night on tour and I was pleasantly suprised actually. It has lost a lot of the laughs and steve X factor dude is no Suggs but its very similar to the london production. If you get a chance go and see. It also could have been louder...

I think it is better than the London version and I think they have sharpened it up a bit and lost some of the slack. I also think Steve Brookstein's voice is superior to that of Suggs althugh of course you will always link Suggs with the music and have preconceptions.
I also think having seen it three times that the sound varies a bit depending where you sit. We found at the Birmingham Rep that if you were level with the stage it sounded muted and further back it was louder. Strange I know and I agree that generally a bit more volume would be good for the cast but the band should stay the same or they would be drowned out. A wonderful show I think and judging by the difficulty we had booking in Milton Keynes a popular one!
