Don Black revealed to some of his and John Barry's fans at the "Thunderball 40th anniversary" screening that he and John Barry do want to revisit Brighton Rock. Don agreed that it would be very sad if the Almeida season was the beginning and the end of the show. He said that it would need some rewriting and it was clear from what he said that this hasn't happened yet.
He said that it should tour in the provinces first before any attempt at at a further West End run
Don seemed genuinely surprised by the interest expressed in the show.
Cause for guarded optimism then, but don't expect anything in the near future. [Thanks to Pete Greenhill for the information.]
