Winning Nancy Not Necesary Doing All Eight Shows
Posted 31 May 2008 - 06:48 PM
Lovely thought, but after Barry Humphries calling her an Understudy? Even though he altered his opinion in a later show, I imagine she'd be loath to take it on now.

Interesting choice of performances.
I reckon they know she should be doing all 8, but clearly Mon, Tues and Weds mat not selling as well (as is normal) so they've popped in this info in an attempt to shift them too.
Friday added as a red herring as be just too obvious otherwise.
What do you think?

They have a get out clause to avoid having to give anybody back anything. It was always likely they would do this. It is possible they will use one of the losers to cover the other nights but suspect not as they probably have a pro lined up for it already. What a great scheme. Announce yet another revival of an old musical, use the BBC to give it publicity and sit back and count the money. Still if it keeps theatres open one has to say why not.

This is ridiculous, Nancy is NOT a big part like 'Maria' or 'Christine', why the hell can't the winner do all 8 shows.
I'm so peeved.

Does anyone know when this was actually put on the Oliver! website? My guess is that it was after Rachel went?

How could they have a get out clause if Andrew and the panel keep saying "8 shows a week" and their website says 4 a week. Most people probably don't check the website before they book tickets, especially if they're booking over the phone.

Sickness and holiday permitting, we have decided that the winning Nancy is scheduled to perform on Monday and Tuesday evenings, Wednesday matinees and Friday evenings. Until the show opens in December we cannot make a final decision on any additional performances.
