Have the lead cast extended their contracts? I heard there were some supposedly leaving in January?

Saw this today and was pleasantly surprised. Cast were generally great and it was a good upbeat show. Natalie Casey was the weakest vocally but I wouldn't have said she was as bad as some have said - most of the audience loved her it seemed. Glad I saw it as I was dreading it from what I'd read.

The critiques never made much sense. It achieves what it set out to do,  and the people behind it had more imagination than some negative reviewers. The press reviews were good when I saw any. The audience loved Natalie when I saw it too, along with Bonnie and Amy. Its got one of the strongest West End casts around at the  moment - its just not on there - though it probably ought to transfer in. Its my Legally Blonde substitute,  and the West End is woefully lacking something similar at the moment. Its touring quite a bit around the south east though so its another reason for abandoning town for the train ..........

I just had a quick look and its actually got 4 star reviews from all over the place. There's reviews from everything from the  Stage and Telegraph http://www.telegraph...g-review.html   to local papers all over the place with the same very positive message. Some think Natalie is wonderful  http://www.thestage....o-5-the-musical. Others agree with you   http://www.britishth...imbledon-t-8173

Saw it in Glasgow and it was much better than I expected. Only the one recognisable song ( can you guess what one?) but a good score. Almost spoiled by drunk females so I'd avoid weekend shows if possible.
I can't think out of the box as I don't have a box to start with.

I meant things I had read on here and other theatre forums from the people who had seen it, not official reviews as I don't often tend to read the newspaper reviews.
