That's great news.

It's a very high profile job - working with Bryn Terfel, Maria Friedman and Philip Quast.  I was secretly hoping that Daniel would be offered Tobias in this production (so I could hear him sing Not While I'm Around) - but never thought it would happen.  So I'm delighted that he's in this production - even if it's playing Anthony - sure his Joanna will be amazing.

Let's hope there's lots more great opportunities just around the corner.

All the best Daniel

He'll be singing to a great Johanna too - Emma Williams is taking that role. It will be the second time they have worked together - they were both in Christmas Notes From New York.
The best of times is now,
Now, not some forgotten yesterday.

I believe Daniel was second choice for the role - Ian Virgo was doing it up until last week, but he took a film instead.

That is probably why he was cast so late.   I think he will pull in the punters and fans from ADWD.

Not that it needs to. There are very few seats left smile.gif

Currently listening to Daniel on Friday Night Is Music Night.

Gethsemane.

Live.

Brave choice and he's nearly pulling it off (ooer).

I thought he was far better in Sweeney Todd than on the Joseph programme.
When I obtained a ticket, I hadn't realised he was in this show.

He wasn't given very good songs on ADWD.   The best performance he did was on the week he was eliminated.  He sang Maggie May and it was brilliant!   Also Close Every Door was the best one on the series.

He wasn't very good on ADWD full stop! A cheesy cruise ship performer at best. No wonder he was voted off.

The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that the road would twist

I take it you would have been far better then.
I won't be called a baggage!
