I'm going to make sure I see the show lots this year as I guess once the movie comes out it will be much harder to get deals as everyone will be going to see it again.

Also do you think Matt Lucas will ever return to the show? I was away travelling during his run and unfortunately missed him.
ex cast member Kerry Ellis is nominated aswell actually.

Also, what is the best soundtrack I should buy? There seem to be a couple on iTunes, which is most similar to what we see on the west end now?

Are you posting for any reason other than to constantly promote the blog and its silly little (and very random) poll?!

And to answer your question, I hope Lucas stays as far away from Les Mis as possible. Most self-indulgent performance I've ever seen with no respect or understanding for the show and character.

And little asides,gestures and a silly voice to remind us he was Matt Lucas from the telly.As horrible as the (alleged) Bob the Builder references from Neil Morrisey as Fagin.

To be fair to Bob the builder, Rowan started that in Oliver with his bear and Mr Bean additions and Omid added his touches from his past too.  I think Matt started his own comedy  trend in Les Mis,  and they have gone for people who can really act the role with suitable serious darkness since.

Sarah Lark (Of I'd Do Anything fame, since appeared in a variety of shows and CDs), has announced she will be joining the cast in June. Fantine I'm guessing.

I would of thought her profile would be too high for regular company parts, she does seem to have grown in stature over the past year or so as well, with the lead on the Bluebird album, and the lead in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
