Saw the new cast on their opening night earlier this week.

Overall I thought they were brilliant, as I had not seen LB previously.
Stephen was a very good Emmett, he suited the role perfectly!
Same goes for Tricia as Viv - very suited for the role and had the perfect voice for LB Remix.

As for Ben's error at the start, I think everyone I know who was there noticed it! But overall he was a good Warner.

I'll be making a return trip very soon to see how they've all settled in!

Saw the new cast this afternoon - they were very good.  The ensemble were good, I liked Ross and Jon in particular.  The new Pilar is OK but not as good as Ibinabo, same with the new Enid though she was very funny in places.  Not impressed with Ben as Warner, his voice is quite weak, and wasn't convinced by his acting in the first half, though he did improve in the second act.

Tricia was very good, quite bitchy and she has a really great voice which was showcased very well in the LB Remix.  Stephen was the highlight of the new cast for me.  He was very funny and played it differently to previous Emmetts.  He played Emmett quite shy/nervous which really works - he's my new favourite Emmett.

Natalie was on form today, great Ireland and reprise, and she was incredibly funny.  LOVED Jane's Brooke also, really glad I got to see her.

and does anyone have the new programme and have the new understudy list?

I heard rummers of the new Enid being Elle understudy? Is Ellie an Elle understudy now seeing as she joined the last case late. And is Tara first u/s Serena or still 2nd?

Saw the show yesterday as a birthday treat, and also to support Stephen Ashfield who I loved in Jersey Boys, what an amazing show! I laughed, cried, cheered - very loudly! All in all a seriously slick, funny and talented cast, can't wait to go again!

Sorry but how on earth can any professional actor coming out of an intensive rehearsal period make that mistake on their first night?

I'm seeing the show tomorrow to see Gemma's Elle - very excited as I'm not really a fan of Carley's Elle... Saw Gemma in 'The Kissing Dance' earlier this year and I can definitely see her being a great Elle :) We shall see tomorrow.
