Thanks for your replies. I'm please to share the information.

Oh, the back wall of the set had various prints of the West End girls sleeve art stuck there slightly ''randomly'' to look like street advertising.

What I like about that cover for West End girls is how they haven't yet developed their signature 'rules' for design and in that sense it's unique. Different fonts going on and a little too 'busy' in an early-80s kind of way. It's really different and I like it for that reason.

Is the music at the beginning and end of the video in the show? It sounds great.

Really enjoyed the video (actors) but the director is doing so much damage to his circulation by sitting with his legs crossed tightly over the knee like that. And twisting his pelvis and lower spine. Obviously this has absolutely nothing to do with PSB’s contribution to the production but it made me wince.

I’m very caring, you know.

Great to read about Hit Music, one of the few neglected tracks from the imperial phase. And yes, that little bit in the video sounds very good. I still believe they should release a Laundrette EP in october or november to fill the gap between Dreamland and second single/240120. It'd definitely make 2019 the "EP year" in their history.

A Laundrette EP.

I'd give that a spin or two....

Can someone tell if the music in the laundrette trailer is no boundaries or at least part of the show ?

"It’s partly heightened, partly expanded but, on the whole, a little diminished".
"The Pet Shop Boys, aka Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, have provided some new – though disappointingly underused – scene-change musi"

Thanks, i really thought it was a melancholic track from the boys.
