I got told that they had cast Cunningham and Price - the problem lay with the team offering contracts to ensemble so late that the ones they wanted had agreed to other jobs so had to re-audition fro ensemble and that the US Creative team wanted the final say on the new cast. They want to make a uniformed announcement with the whole company not in bits and pieces.
This is my street, I smile at the faces I've known all my life, They regard me with pride.

Also, it occurs to me that South Park is currently airing, so Trey and Matt will be doing that around the clock given their 'do each episode in a week' work ethic, so obviously they won't be able to be around for the final stages of auditions.

South Park finishes on the 7th, so I'm guessing that they will be back over mid-November to sort casting.

This is Gavin Creel's third West End show and he's very good so good casting and I saw Jared when I saw BoM in NY and he was a good Elder Cunningham, as for the rest of the cast I'm guessing Stephen Ashford is Elder McKinkey. I really pumped to see the show again and how a British audience responds to it.

Great to have some more news. Jared has tweeted that he is doing it, so not just a Baz rumour anymore. Greatly looking forward to March now.

I love that Jared and Gavin are coming over, but am not too thrilled at Alexia Khadime being in the cast, i assume as Nabalunghi.  Didn't like her Eponine or Elphaba, but maybe this is her role?  Wish Nikki could have come over too.
