One more time for the dude who doesn't get it: yeah, we know it wasn't filmed at the Menier.

I thought it had been filmed at The Savoy, you're telling us it was filmed at the Manchester Palace, either way we're talking about the same thing: a tiny production plopped onto a big stage as a legitimate West End musical. That is what matters for our purposes.

We're not concerned that this Funny Girl won't be compelling and wonderful in a tiny Off-Broadway house, we're concerned that we're going to get a tiny production plopped into the August Wilson Theater and looking just as anemic as the West End/UK Tour production. Hopefully, Sonia Friedman and Michael Mayer know that they need to go bigger and deliver more, and hopefully the Menier is just listed as a producer because they birthed that first production, but only time will tell. But if they think they can Night Music us again, they're going to be sorely mistaken.
