Theatrical types: could you supply advice on transplanting a small musical from New York to London? Any perspective welcome, particularly suggested theatres and people who "run the scene."

(I'm asking this for a friend, but it's something I personally will do all I can to see happen.)
The musical had good write-ups (including an NYT mention) and audiences in New York. It's quite political, and borders on rock opera.
How would they repeat this success in London?
Where should they consider staging it? Do you know any cool theatres that are receptive to left-field material?
What websites/organizations/companies dominate the scene?
Is there anyone in particular who would be interested in promoting etc?
Rest assured every bit of help is hugely appreciated.
