Trivia / Starlight Express

  • Cut Song: Several, including some that were necessary for the plot. See the Cut Song page for more details.
  • Retroactive Recognition: A recording of The New Starlight Express starred Mark Cohen as Greaseball, a few years before he would release his quintessential 90s One-Hit Wonder, "Walking In Memphis."
  • What Could Have Been: Had the Thomas the Tank Engine musical come to fruition, this show would not exist. Similarly, the hand-drawn original poster provides a glimpse of what the aborted 1970s animated film might have looked like.
    • Belle was going to be in the Bochum show, but the casting department could not find anyone capable of handling the role. After her role was reduced on Broadway, Bochum decided to carry on without her.
