Well I can't say I'm disappointed it's going to be significantly different from the London production and having seen a (small in stature) adult ensemble member cover Jemima Potts in Chitty a few months ago, I can absolutely see how well it could work. Having only Charlie played by a child seems slightly odd but I can see that may serve to emphasise his otherness. Intrigued.
I have been keeping an eye on this production during rehearsals, by looking at various social medias. As we know, the kids other than Charlie are played by adults but I have now seen pictures of all the 'kid' characters and 2 of them are taller than the actors/actresses playing their parents I hope they've thought of an excuse because that will look completely wrong.
Thank goodness they are putting Candy Man for the start of the show and I've Got a Golden Ticket into the show. Sad Cheer Up Charlie never made it. The set is completely different too. Exciting what they will do with it, the adults playing the kids seems to work! As its a completely different production they really should have designed new artwork and logo in my opinion.

Urgh. Dont like. I really like the framing of the stage/set on the London production. This Clouds thing looks pants. Also its kinda cool to include 'The Candy Man' but curtain call material? Feels a bit lifeless to me.
Ewww look at that tiny factory in the background. Please don't tell me that's what they use throughout the show. The one thing the London production had going for it was it's design so it's a shame that they have changed it
