It is good that things are in the open now, without all the secrecy we had to live with before the Edinburgh run. I get that changes can be made and things don't always go according to plan, but that secrecy thing... Really!  :thumbsdown Chichester Festival Theathre seems to post more on social media, I am grateful for the video  :D :thumbsup

There were a lot of videos and pictures prior to the Edinburgh run. Actually the whole cast visited Pennan and Banf, and published lot of pictures and videos interviewing the cast at both places, also there were a video or two with Knopfler working with David Greig and Bill Forsyth at the studio when writing the musical, also with interviews...

They are still available here

Thanks jbaent :)

Good to see MK :)

It's a pity we can't hear what they're talking about.

It looks like the video was made on day one, with anyone introducing each other.

The music in the video is an instrumental piece that can be heard in the musical when Mac arrives to Scotland. According to Guy is part of the song "a barrel of crude" which is the first song of the musical. It's strange as they sound like different songs, actually this instrumental piece is the third or fourth you can listen during the play...

It's one week to go, on October 8th, and the sales are going quite well.

It's all sold out from the 8th to the 17th of october, which is the press night, all the remaining dates of October, except the very last one, it says "LAST FEW TICKETS REMAINING", also many of the November dates says the same, about 16 perfomances of November don't have that warning yet.

I know that it's a small theatre of around 300 capacity, but if the idea was using these perfomances to get a transfer to London next year, i'd say that at least on sales, it is almost a success, now let's wait for the night press and read what they say about it!

No wonder why MK looks that happy attending the rehearsals

It was way before the show started, as it was sold out.

Thanks for the pictures.
Have you already been able to check if there are any chances in the track list?
