I find Nigel Planer to be a very listless performer- his Wizard was amongst the most dull I have seen, for example.
It's not so much do what you like, as it is that you like what you do

Me too. He doesn't seem jolly enough. Clive Carter I love though, always excellent & fantastic to see Jack Shalloo in the cast.

I thought he made a good Amos in Chicago, particularly for "Mr Cellophane" - but then that's hardly a jolly role!

They are both excellent. Can't wait for more casting news.

I think we need to put the films aside for now when it comes to this stage show. Sam has said that he needs to give us things we have never seen before - so, whilst the tricks will be there - my guess is they will have a theatrical tint to them, rather then a  "naturalistic" element (if that makes sense).

Will certainly be epic - and very exciting!
