I wish it were.
"In the long-term, Mackintosh thinks it’s Les Misérables that will outlive us all. “It’s as potent in a class-room as it is on a Broadway stage.” Its revamped 25th anniversary version is being staged in 10 countries and it looks set to supplant the originating London incarnation when the 30th anniversary comes round next year."http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/thea ... reams.html
1. It's not a direct Cammack quote, just Dominic Cavendish saying it "looks set" to happen, which could entirely be a lazy assumption on the basis of all the hype around the new version or an attempt to start a rumour.
2. If it is true, we have a year and a half to do something about it.
3. This directly excludes the possibility of the show (in whatever form) closing in the near future.
I can't be anti-the 25th anniversary tour simply because I haven't seen it, but I think a lot of people have read about its problems and, regardless, this is just so worrying.
