We went to see the Gershwin musical ‘Crazy For You’ at Chichester’s larger Festival Theatre last week. (Local Hero is on at the smaller Minerva.) The programme has a full page ad for Local Hero with the now iconic red phone box and Northern Lights. The blurb refers to ‘the legendary Mark Knopfler (formerly of Dire Straits).’ Nice.

The cast is still not revelead, but looks like this actor is one of them:

There is a line that says:

On the day we spoke, they were heading to Pennan, as much for research as relaxation; Paul’s next role is in the musical adaptation of Local Hero.

So he is obviously one of the actors!

Just saw this picture of the Minerva Theatre and made me thought, not only how intimate is going to be, but also that seems that there is not a space for a band playing live, as happened in Edinburgh. How special would it be if the actors sing over a recorded music, and that could be the one MK recorded with their band at British Grove?

 :lol

That would be extra special, to be able to listen MK and his band playing the music!

They also could use music recorded by a band on rehearsals but, please, don't bother to do that extra job, use the MK recordings, lol!

Quite often (and didn't this happen in Edinburgh?) the band are actually playing in a different room, sometimes under the stage.

Beautiful thought, but the band at the Royal Lyceum was backstage for most of the show, so I expect that in Chichester, too.

The theater looks small, but yes, there is a chance that the band is on another room, as Dusty says.

I still hope they could use the recordings, LOL
