Random question for anyone who's been to see it in NYC... What merchandise do they have? My dad in going to be in NYC next week and is willing to pop to the theatre to buy some stuff for me if they'll let him, I just have no idea what they have. Seeing as how we had no London run merch I'd love anything they are selling! I'm guessing they'll have an online store at some point but there isn't one yet.
Maybe it will s just me but the new photons do not seem to look as nice or professional as the old vic. Maybe it is just me being picky. Let's hope it wins a few olivier or even Tony's and we get it back in the west end.
charliec at this rate your dad could make money out of selling them to us all! Best though would be if the show was going to be back over here again soon so we can go and see it again and buy our own cuddly toy groundhogs!

Just feel so happy I saw this show when I did, a month into the run at The Old Vic, with the major discount just before opening and it selling out! Such a brilliant show. Here's hoping it will transfer over again, I can't even begin to imagine who they would cast in Andy's role though, as I doubt he will come back.
I remember this being a bit more melodic than this? No?
Also i think i preferred the actress from the Old Vic runs voice.
The background harmonies are quite different. They've changed the phrasing on quite a few lines, particularly my favourite bit near the end of the song where Phil is singing about starting 700 fights and Rita quietly and slowly sings "if I had my time again" over the top, the Rita line has been sped up and I can't really see why.
This was my favourite song from the show last year and I still really like it, but it's got that "Broadway sheen" now and just doesn't feel quite as magical!
I think most of the words are the same, the ending lines about doors are new, they've slightly changed a few other bits like when Phil is talking about eating a dozen doughnuts everyday, I'm sure the wording was clearer before.
