Personally I have a feeling any plans for a revival in the West End have been shelved and Chichester was a replacement rather than a supplement.  If they intended a run in London then why bother with Chichester at all?  From what I recall they had already made alterations to the show during its course in the Edinburgh run so they can do that at any time.  If they had wanted to "refine" the show before a London run it wouldn't have been given to new hands who didn't see the previous show and have now given everyone a new show, and one which was played in an intimate theatre.

Actually Daniel Evans explains in that pretalk video that after Old Vic cancellation the musical was death, and the producers were trying to give life to it again, and that's how it arrived to Evans, who is departing from Chichester to the Royal Shakespeare Company in London next April.

Chichester Festival is famous for transferring their musicals to the West End so it looks like a smart decision, at least better to leave it death.
You might get lucky, now and then
