Liked Tam, Sounded very strong and stayed on story - ending with going convincingly unbalanced before taking the dive. Stars, on my  audience response clapometer registered the  best response of anyone. Interestingly, playing it as he did, Javert got as strong as response as anyone I have seen but he didn't get the chorus of panto boos at curtian call  - that may be a good thing?


He got the boos at the Wednesday evening performance! And I think that was actually the first time I've seen the show where Javert has been booed.
Overall I like this cast and whilst there are a couple who are noticeably lacking at the moment, I think once they settle into it and have time to develop their characters, they could be great. Definitely interested to see what Sierra's going to be like.

Just incase there was any confusion still, Linzi will play Madame Thénardier, till saturday the 30th June and will return on the 10th September. While she is away. Katy Secombe Will play the role.

Yay!  Looking forward to seeing her on Saturday.

Does anyone know who will be playing Fantine until Sierra Boggess starts, as I beleive Caroline Sheen is finishing this Friday?  Who is the current Fantine understudy?

AJ Callaghan. She's marvellous. I would have loved for her to take over as principal

Slightly off topic...

But could anyone tell me the reasons behind the move from the Palace Theatre to Queens in 2004?

Has Sierra's start date been confirmed anywhere? The official site & facebook page are as unhelpful as ever...
