Moby Dick to Rise Again?

When Sir Cameron Mackintosh was talking to Graham Norton on his BBC Radio 2 Show on Saturday morning he mentioned a possible revival of his 1992 Moby Dick musical by Robert Longden and  Hereward Kaye.

It was blasted by critics and closed after only four months at the Piccadilly Theatre. I saw it a couple times and have to say I found it all a bit of fun.

Mackintosh says there are now two revivals in the works: “A production that’s going to open in London in a pub theatre and there’s one being eyed up for Broadway in the next two years.

It was due to be revived at the Landor Theatre over a year ago but was cancelled because of funding issues with the cast into their third week of rehearsals.
