Oh i forgot to mention, when i saw the show on 11th July, the song by the Wizard at the end "Farewell To Oz" was cut out of the show! I dont understand why though

No, Des was the doorman at my show definatly, but he was not the tour guide. And he doesnt do any dancing what-so-ever... Quite a small, unimpressive part

"Farewell to Oz" is not cut. Des just speak-sings it all except from the last few notes. Des definitely has not been the doorman at any point.

The dancing was only put in for Russell Grant to show off his strictly "skills". Now he's left they've kept the ensemble dance routines in, it makes the number a little more interesting plus as Des does his lines and songs at double-speed of Michael or Russell they need to keep the running times up a bit!

When I dayseated on a Sunday, I arrived (I believe) around 11.30-12.00 and got two Row A Stalls seats, and the dayseats didn't seem to be all that popular when we got into the auditorium. That was quite a while ago, however.

Finally show is usually a normal show. Unlikely to be speeches but you never know.

Legally Blonde closing night was terrific.

Cast gave and extra 10%, speeches at the end were beautiful and the atmosphere in the crowd was truly electric!

However I can't quite see this being quite as big, but im sure it will still be fun!
