ABSTRACT
The article discusses the chances for success of hit Broadway musicals which are being readied for transfer to London's West End: Avenue Q, Wicked and Monty Python's Spamalot. Experience has proved that popular U.S. shows that sail into the West End may not be well-received by British audiences. Curiously, Monty Python's Spamalot, the Broadway show that came straight from the British comedy tradition--is the one most likely to go through some modifications before its London opening.
