In the months after it opened it all got rather messy when they split the show into two to try and get people to stay longer and drink more etc. After about 4 months they closed it down and did a major rework, reopening with a new name -'Y'. many people asked 'why'????- it wasn't any different I thought maybe by the time the show had gone thru the whole alphabet they may get it right! 'I', 'Y', 'A', 'B', 'C' etc etc. There were major funding problems too as the show was huge to stage with great effects and the catering became expensive as no one was eating what loads of waiters were paid to dish out! The producers fell out with the theatre management and the guy who created, he was famous for hissy fits and was actually barred from the theatre at one time- bit awkward as he was the shows lead performer!!! You know -looking back I'm surprised it stayed at the Piccadilly for nearly a year, be it in many different guises.
