So don't hold your breath on seeing Miss Paige at every show!!
I love her by the way and seen her many times on stage - she has a great voice but she is a DIVA!!!

That's so not true. Producer David Stigwood had to force Elaine Paige to do only 6 shows during her run in "Evita". She wanted to do all shows but Stigwood orderd Elaine to rest her voice because she's given 120% at every single performance.

And what's wrong about that?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that as long as YOU also give the 'best' and I can assure you that on her last run in the West End she did not.
This is not rumour it is fact, her attendance during her run in 'the King & I' made even Martine McCutcheon look like a sweat shop worker.

And once during The King and I called the children "little c(you next tuesday...)s"
I'm not looking forward to running into her...

I really hope for your sake Carrie, that you are not using your real name.......comments like that on public boards have had people sacked in the past!
I love these message boards *but* people who post here should remember that this is for public viewing.......you are not just sitting in a pub/theatre bar and chatting to your West End mates, the sort of place where we traditionally share gossip!
I once got a reprimand for gossiping at a bus stop with some other WE peeps that I shared a journey home with, a member of the audience of the show I was on wrote a letter to the Theatre about what she had heard..............................
I know we use these boards as a place for gossip etc...... BUT if your reliable source works at the Theatre I really don't see how reliable the info is! The ONLY people who know about things like that are people within Production Company and those in the company who are currently rehearsing.
*IF* Ms Paige is only doing 4 shows a week & sharing the role it would/should be advertised, and if it isn't then the production will have a huge problem on it's hands!
