Apollo Victoria wont be free for many years, Dominion they could probably buy WWRY out, Palladium I think will have a hit on their hands if Charlie's done well and Drury Lane Im not sure.. I just have a feeling Shrek will leave there in the next year or two!

The Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark is looking for a home in London, but so far all doors are closed.
It’s not that theatre owners here don’t like the geeky webslinger — it’s just that the show is too big.
Producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris were on a recent scouting trip and visited, among other venues, the Palladium and the Drury Lane.
I should make it clear that, in any case, those theatres aren’t available — even though Spidey wouldn’t zoom in for a couple of years.
Spider-Man spokesman Rick Miramontez said there wasn’t a theatre able to accommodate such an enormous physical production and added: ‘Short of building a theatre, there doesn’t seem to be a solution.’
Unless, of course, they can do a long-term deal with the 02.
Or pay Phil McIntyre a trillion bucks to move We Will Rock You out of the Dominion Theatre.

It's hardly a flop on Broadway. Attendance is consistently above 95% and since it opened it's been sat firmly at the top end of the box office charts, losing out only to the big hits like Wicked and The Lion King. It may cost a fortune to run, but it's one of the hottest tickets on Broadway.

Drury Lane or Dominion are the only viable options if they want a London run, the Dominion could make use of the closed upper circle for the flying and perhaps extra seating, it took in the large scale version of Beauty and the Beast so it can hold big productions,
