I've already got my ticket to see the show in Sunderland on the 31st (ah Halloween!), so I hope things'll be a bit more polished by then! Get Out And Stay Out is my favourite song in the show and since I adore Stephanie J. Block's version, I have really high expectations for this... :rolleyes:

I've heard clips of Nstalie singing Ireland in Legally Blonde and whilst she was ok i would hardly describe it as the best vocal performance in town, in fact she wasn't even the best vocal performance in her show. As for the way Blonde is played in the US and UK both original women played her as an airhead with brains and heart, Shetidan just played the comedy better. That's very different from turning the character in to something completely different which is what has happened in 9 to 5

Your comment about no one standing in the circle or gallery at the end of the show are totally fabricated, from my seat in the gallery I could see a huge number of the circle on their feet as well as in the gallery.  Granted not as many in the gallery as it does take a certain amount of courage to sit up there let alone stand!

I have a pic on my phone I took at the end during the curtain call, I will post it. From where I was sat (front of Gallery) I did not see anyone at the front of the circle stand and nobody in the gallery. I will see if I can upload the pic

Is the smoking weed scene still in the show and does the "Sexist..Bigot" number play out similar to the dream sequence?

Yes the smoking weed scene is in but was terrible on the night i saw it, hopefully they can tighten it up. At the end of the scene Judy talks about the picture she is seeing in her head and it goes in to the new song with each lady singing a section about what they would like to do to him. All the dream scene takes place in the boss's office but it's all pink and glittery, it was fun, an improvement on the Broadway version. The lyrics were hard to make it out though due to bad sound balance

Does whether anyone stood or not really matter? That's no sign of anything, especially on a first preview. Those who know the cast will stand, while those who don't, won't (and nor will they be impressed as it's not slick yet). That's almost always the case, isn't it?

I'm looking forward to seeing this next week, but the main thing I'm worried about is Natalie Casey. One of my favourite actresses got so close to being cast, I don't want to be sitting there thinking "she could do it better". The cynical part of me suspects that Natalie was cast because she's a name.
