I know a couple of people who went and said she was fantastic.  She posted a picture on Twitter and she looks fantastic, I love her wig.

I was a bit gutted because I missed her by a day as I saw the show Tuesday and Wednesday.  Tim Driesen is a fantastic Drew, his voice is really good - his last 'Hold On' in Oh Sherrie is very different from anyone else, but a great twist.  I loved Ross again on Wednesday and he was great again, I love his Drew.

I must say I liked Tim Howar more than the first time - his interpretation makes more sense to me now, though I still prefer Shayne.  I also had Nathan as Lonny, and I forgot how great he is in that role - he isn't as outrageous as Simon, Nathan's Lonny is quite sweet, but still very funny.

With Loserville closing on the 5th Jan that gives Rock of Ages a week to move to the Garrick... ;) bigger and better than the Duchess. What do we think?

The 2 theatres that were bandied around were the Duchess and Garrick. I don't really like the Garrick but it is central and hopefully can get the audiences to keep the show open. Sad to see Loserville closing so soon though.

I hate them both but would rather the Duchess! At least you can see from most seats. The Garrick is awful for sight lines.

I don't like the Garrick, but it's location will pull people and rather it go there and last a year, than 6 months at the Duchess.

I believe there is a crazy 5 day change between Loserville closing and ROA opening at the Garrick

Well ROA is scheduled to finish at the Shaftesbury on the 6th and reopen on the 18th, that's the last I heard and ROA don't tell their fans anything, they never even officially announced the new cast. But with moving the sets and rehearsals a 5 day turnaround would sound about right.

No, still 6th January, but I imagine they don't want to stop selling/change things until a new theatre is confirmed
