    Saw this awesome musical while on vacation in London.
    Does anyone know if it will be released on DVD?

    Very few musicals ever make it to DVD or video.
    Some of the Lloyd Webber ones (Joseph, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Oklahoma (this was the version Sky Movies had on) have but these were remounted in a studio rather than being recorded in the theatre. The only ones I can remember of the actual events were Les Miserables (the concert at the Royal Albert Hall rather than the show) and the Cameron Mackintosh anniversary concert.

    I can never remember an actual musical recorded in the West End theatre being released.

    They are filmed (my mum & sister were in the audience of Witches of Eastwick when it was recorded and as a result their ticket was reduced to only £5). However these are for the BFI / NFT archive and are not for public show, they are just for historical research puposes.

    Probably they think once its sold on DVD people will not goto the show and so it will destroy the value of any touring version or future revival in the West End

    God, I hope not.

    Hopefully it'll just fade into obscurity and not blight the hide of the world with its carbunkle.
