don't know if anyone's seen this.
I don't know how likely it is that this will happen. I'd say the chances are slim

Sierra Boggess will definitely have left the show by January 21st, as from that week she will be playing Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway (for a limited time). This follows the news that the 25th Anniversary Performance of Phantom on Broadway will be held at The Majestic Theatre on 26th January.

Confirmed on the official Phantom Facebook page and in Daily Mail.

Do we know who is taking over Marius when Craig leaves? I've heard Oliver Saville is being promoted to Enjolras when Liam goes, is the same thing happening with first cover Marius?

May I ask where you've heard that? I know it's been one of the option they've been considering but I don't think that decision has been made yet... I simply can't imagine him as principal, especially going by his vocal performance. And no, I don't believe a Marius announcement has been made.

Someone told me that Oliver was hired for ensemble on the understanding that he'd be promoted after Liam leaves. It's not an official source though.

It's a shame Sierra is leaving before Cast change. I'm going on the 1st December aswell though so hopefully I'll get to see her then as I've been looking forward to seeing her Fantine!
Great news about Phantom though, she's a wonderful Christine :)
Also, I've yet to pass judgement on Oliver Savile as Enjolras but he'll be on as him on the 1st so I'm looking forward to seeing his interpretation of the character. I've heard both good and not so good things about him, but going on looks (which I know you shouldn't do, but anyway - ) he looks very book!Enjolras which makes me excited!

Oh it would be nice to have an Enjolras whose voice made you want to head up those barricades!

I've never seen a bad Enjolras. Admittedly, I've only seen 4... David Thaxton was my first and my favourite. Full of charisma and charm.
