Why is there a trend to not include the full casts/ ensembles photos and biogs on the website?

Both 9 to 5 and the Phantom tour only include the principals photos and biogs and 9 to 5 doesn't even include a full list.

Saw the show last night in Wimbledon and really enjoyed it - loved Amy Lennox ( again after loving her in Soho Cinders) and loved Natalie Casey ( again after loving her Paulette in LB) - Bonnie Langford was superb too and boy is she maliable ! I was not overly keen on Ben Richards and the ensemble really need to tighten up they were rather sloppy in quite a few places... although having to shift all that scenery about may tire them out ! The Dolly Parton clips were amusing and fitted in well .

I like Natalie a lot as a TV actress but I didn't love her in Legally Blonde

I'm seeing the show tonight and really have no idea what to expect!

Well, I thought Amy, Jackie and Ben were pretty perfect...

I think my main problem with Natalie, in particular her characterisation and in particular in 'Get out and stay out' was that by that point, Judy is supposed to have found her strength. The way she sung the song was at odds with the lyrics. She was still crying and being kind of weak. On a more technical note, she didn't so much sing that song as speak it. Overall, i felt she over acted in it and played for laughs, I don't think that's what it should be about. I thought Amy was very funny, but also managed to find the truth in the character. It's a fine balance that I don't think Natale managed.

Cat i could not agree more
Natalie delivers Get Out and Stay Out like she has paid no attention to her character's journey, story or listened to the lyrics. She should not be crying etc all the way through the song because it sounds like she really has not found any strength at all, and the fact she has been directed to have her back to him so much when he is there is odd. I HATED her crying throughout that song, it just ruined it. When she got to the end of the song and powered it out she shows that she can sing, but before that i just wanted to cover my ears and close my eyes

I didn't like Natalie's interpretation of the character, but felt it worked. Until that point.
