Guy on his forum:
Yes, it has just been announced. There are no London performances as yet and no, there is no CD cast album….yet.

I'd quite like to go to Chichester, especially if there was the prospect of an RAH style meet-up with all you guys at one of the fan nights, but I'm going to Amsterdam to see Jason Isbell in November so the prospect of two trips in one month.

Chichester should be easy to get to from Gatwick Airport.

Just as easy perhaps for you to fly with Logan Air into Southampton then train to Chichester?

Was just thinking there might be more flights in and out of Gatwick. I'm more familiar with Gatwick as I have family in Crawley. :)

Looks like the Minerva theatre is really small... I already read that the capacity was 300, which is little for a theatre, but when you see pictures of it...
You might get lucky, now and then

I wonder if the cast would be the same than in Edinburgh... The main characters were so good that I really hope at least they are the same, it would be rare if they choose another actors, but I don't know if in such a small theatre, they could afford the same actors.

Will depend on availability as well I guess.

Also, reading the names of the creative team, the director for the Lyceum and Old Vic is not included, and they have a new director, linked with the Chichester theater, so I wonder if that's just for this representation, or something happened and the project was abandoned by previous director and it's in another hands now...

In the Chichester site it mentions that they productions usually went to the West End, other London theaters and even on tour throught the Uk and the world, and they keep them as "Chichester productions".

It's like after the pandemic, the people behind the Lyceum/Old Vic production said, well, no, we are not going ahead with this, and they needed someone else to take care of the production.

It would be lovely to see these actors again.
I spoke to one of them at the O2 show in 2019 and he said that they have to apply and audition again for the then planned London 2020 production.
So it is not automatically a given that they will all return.
Let's keep our fingers crossed.

I would also love to see these lovely actors and singers again.

One of the actors was at the Mk show at the O2? so great!

Who was, if you remember?

Adam Pearce was there with his grilfriend/wife and he was impressed by MK's performance.

If any of you are thinking of going to Chichester, read this:

This morning a friend of mine, who as an account as "friend of the Chichester theatre" bought tickets in a pre-sale, and first thing was being in a queue in position 900...

After all the wait, he managed to get tickets for our selected date, but there wasn't much to choose.

So, if any of you have doubts about going or not, solve the doubts soon, as it looks like it could sell very fast. The theater is small, around 300 of capacity.
