Finally some news!
The question is whether no London at all or London in 2023?

Considering this is for October-November 2022, and Local Hero in London probably will run for two or more months, I guess that would be in 2023.

Since the CFT has a section on its site called "CFT IN LONDON AND ON TOUR" it could well be that they transfer it to London in 2023.

Where did you see that?
You might get lucky, now and then

Of, Thank you.

It's weird they are doing Chichester in October and November this year, when everyone was waiting for London, i wonder what's the story behind this...

Maybe can't get a theatre in London, or maybe the theatres in London aren't interesting.

I'm sure Chichester is a lovely place but the show going ahead there instead of the theatre prestige of the West End is a real come down.

Yes, it is.

My guess is, like you say, they tried to get a theatre in London but they couldn't as many of them are bringing back what they had to postpone after the pandemic, or they could but very late in 2023, and they wanted to bring it back before, and as Guy lives nearby Chichester, he managed to bring the musical to Chichester, try to get good critics and help bringing it to London, or if they already have dates for London 2023, getting back the actors, musicians etc to the play, before their run in London.

They would do some promotion so we might read something on press these days, hopefully they would reveal something more.

The people involved, some of them, are different from the Edinburgh run, the cast is not reveled yet.

Chichester is a lovely place, I would personally prefer to go there than London. I wonder if it is a bit like the limited run in Edinburgh and a warm up for London. I have no idea how theatres work so I am probably completely wrong.

Actually, Chichester has a strong reputation, probably a better one than some of the London theatres. It’s slightly surprising news, but not exactly bad news.
