X Factor The Musical To The Palladium

Has any other show sold its previews months before selling the rest of the run? Feels a bit like testing the waters.

Not sure. Viva had the obvious problem that it was a Spice Girls Musical trying to look unlike the Spice Girls.And it then went for people who were actually inexperienced when it could have packed the show with great vocalists who could play beginners.
This one is just plain curious. How do you write a comedy about the X factor that sends it up, but doesn't actually tell all the truth because its written for the same management? If you pull the punches and don't have the singing dog, or the mute boyband, or the comedy act, or the bland male, sending the good singers home, does the comedy work? How do you have mediocre singers in the mix, and expect people to pay £65 listen to them? And if you want a musical with really strong impressive singers, and there s an awful lot of them being unused now elsewhere available to cast , why have a lot of new songs when you have the perfect excuse to use any and every top song written in the last 70 years? Original is good , but few people can write more than a few new good songs. so wouldn't sticking to the original X factor format and using covers be more in keeping with the reality, and provide something more spectacular to listen to? They may have found a way to pull all that together and produce something really good, or it may be awful. If its awful, it may still sell if they cast it with the odd soap star, X factor winner and pop star singer and just rely on X factor fans to turn up??? Intriguing.
