I don't know about that.I love Hadley Fraser and Ramin Karimloo but listening to their Sheytoons band and their self-penned songs was an experience I shan't be repeating...(no offence!)

I've never seen Les Mis. And MasterCard is my least favourite credit card.

If you want to watch Davud Thaxton perform go and check out his band! They're very good ;)
I totally agree, I've seen Unborn Twin and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
I have heard a rumour that David is doing one of Earl Carpenters musical evenings in Leeds I think in a few months

After hearing some of their tracks-Unborn Twins. I can't say there is any thing to differentiate them from other bands out there. So maybe David will be seen again on the stage

Well, I hope not for his sake, but I would definitely pay to see him again in almost any part. He even managed to breathe some life into Raoul in "Love Never Dies" and that must have taken some doing....

Hello Les Mis fans

Just in case you missed it, there's a fabulous competition that MasterCard, sponsor of the Olivier Awards, is running at the moment, which we’re also promoting at the top of Forum pages this week.

As part of the competition, you could win either a chance to sing onstage at a dress rehearsal OR a chance to attend – as a VIP, no less – this year’s Olivier Awards, at the Royal Opera House on Sunday 28 April.

To enter, log onto the competition page here http://wos.im/MCLesMis . If you’re a budding Jean Valjean or Eponine, be sure to enter this week. The Les Miserables prize draw takes place at 9:59am Monday 25 March 2013. The Oliviers prize draw takes place on 22 April.

And watch out on the Discussion Forum over the coming weeks for two more unmissable MasterCard show experience competitions, inspired by the Olivier Awards.

Kind regards,

Whatsonstage.com

P.S. On the subject of singing at a dress rehearsal of Les Miserables, which Les Mis song would you must like to have a go at on a West End stage? We took a straw poll in the Whatsonstage.com office and “Do You Hear the People Sing?” won by a hair.

There's a possibility that Carrie Hope Fletcher (youtuber, Tom Fletcher of McFly's younger sister) is Eponine, and it also seems that Nadim Naaman may have auditioned

I know a couple who have been cast, but can't say anything yet, but they are straight from drama school.

Carrie is quite friendly with ramin karimloo and has done some of his gigs so she has been making a bit of a name for herself. Tom from mcfly as marius wouldnt surprise me in the next couple of years.

Nadim was in phantom? He was really good
