Talking just the London productions, and also discounting Gypsy and West Side Story where Sondheim did the lyrics
Funny Thing Happened 1963-65 (792 performances)
Little Night Music 1974-5 (406 performances)
Side by Side by Sondheim 1976-9 (806 performances)
Follies 1987-9 (644 performances)
With the combined productions (including small scale off-west-end), Sweeney, one of the most revived shows in London over the past few decades, must have exceeded any of these.
And who could see that the road would twist

Filling the Menier for a month may be great; actually it is great for the Menier, but keeping a 1000 seater going for a long run is an entirely different kettle of fish.
Well we will see - I saw the Woman in White and was not overly impressed. But then I am a very ordinary bloke who likes to leave the theatre smiling and humming a good tune. And ALW wrote all his best songs many years ago. There are some belters but not too many recently.
