This isnt thinking of town any more. Tey hoped to bring it in next April but plans have been put on the shelf as Mr Conley has a new TV series he's committed to now.
Chichester has presented a brilliant array of of productions in the last 30 or 40 years its been open, many being West End worthy and many more not. The ones that have moved to London normally come in for a set limited season and a lot of them have closed a great deal earlier than planned. The longest run I can think of off the top of my head was 'Underneath The Arches' at the Prince Of Wales back in 1982/83. The expense of bringing in such a big show like 'The Music Man' is no longer as safe as a few years ago. The reviews for this production weren't as hot as they expected and they now have the perfect excuse not to transfer as in MR Conely doing a new TV series. Regarding Chichester, I have seen maybe 20 of the shows that came in and I must say some of them have been simply brilliant-'The Scarlet Pimpernel' 'Underneath The Arches' 'The Clandestine Marriage' 'tis Pity She's A Whore' -the list goes on. Its also sent in some really bad ones like Suzie Quatro in 'Annie Get Your Gun' (8 weeks), 'The Mitford Girls' (9 week) and others.
