I think it maybe because they wanted the band on stage for the ballroom scene. In someways having them as a centre piece for the scene, saved some money on set pieces.

Ah right. It didnt look like the novello had a pit i assume the stage was extended over it.

I think The Novello has only used a pit for a few shows, I remember The Drowsy Chaperone and Footloose having one. For plays and musicals that didn't require, they dismantle it. It will be interesting how Mamma Mia adapts into the Novello.

I have heard only good things about it and if it's as good as it was at Open Air it'll be terrific. However, when you say "should be there for a very long time" are you predicting it'll run for a very long time at The Novello or did you mean that it's a shame Mamma Mia! is going in as it deserves to be there for a very long time? Either way....it's going to have to leave by mid-late October 2012...
Somebody make me come through, I'll always be there, As frightened as you, of Being Alive.
It's my life - it's now or never.

To use the pit at the novello, rows A and B have to be removed.
