There is only one performance on Thursdays! Matinees are Wednesday and Saturday.
The best of times is now,
Now, not some forgotten yesterday.
Now, tomorrow is too far away

? I wonder how long ago Lesley and the theatre knew she was going to be
off for this week and when the public was informed ?

Well well, so there is - many apologies if I've been misleading!
(I'd thought Thursday off would mean 3 shows before & 3 after,
each chunk having a day off between to rest her voice.)

------------------------

Interesting too that TUESDAY evening shows start at 7pm.

That seems a good idea -
I suppose it's aimed at families, ie at not keeping the children up so late -
or maybe it's to enable the Cast to get an earlier night before their WEDNESDAY Matinee -
though it might also make it feasible for people from way outside London to get transport home afterwards -
eg maybe even to Cardiff!

------------------------

As regards when the Fame Academy leave was known/announced, I don't know -
I'd not been keeping track of the show until recently, as I had no prospects of getting there
(not realising till recently about the Tuesday evening earlier starts).

The only leave dates I knew of ages ago were a week in February (I assumed half term, to spend time with her children) -
though the Fame Academy leave were possibly mentioned ages ago to people who actually rang to book for those dates.

(The actual dates off are still not specified on the official show website (though I think they are on See Tickets website.)

Although there's accurate information about Lesley Garrett's Fame Academy dates on its page re Connie's health,
the official show website TICKETS page still says:

QUOTE
Please note: Lesley Garrett's final performance will be on 28th April 2007.  Miss Garrett is not scheduled to appear at all performances before that date.  Please check with the Box Office before purchasing your tickets.


Box Office Tel 0870 890 1108


However, when I rang that number again the other day (possibly Thursday though probably Friday teatime-ish),
the young man I spoke to seemed to think Ms Garrett was NOT due onstage next Sat, March17th - though she IS:
I told him to check, & he did check, & she IS.

It's 'just' Connie who isn't.
