This has just made my day, I think he is a surprisingly good choice for Edna, never would have associated him with the role before.

Never heard of him so any singing clips would be appreciated. He certainly looks the part I prefer a heftier Edna. :)

He says he's never done a musical before. Whether or not he can sing remains to be seen. After seeing Michael Ball, I'm almost afraid to see someone else play Edna as he was so unbelievable. I wasn't a big fan before but I love love love him now.

As great as Michael Ball was in the role, the show is the star. I've seen it with and without him and it's just as great

you don't really need to be a singer for Edna. Look at Phil. Its more about the acting and comedy. I think he'll be great.

Well I seen it with Micheal in Dublin and he was fantastic so unfortunately I have nothing to compare another live performance with but I have seen clips of Micheal Stark and he was great too. Brian Conley always irked me but that is me judging by looks I am sure if I seen him in the part he would be fantastic! :)

I love Mark so I'm looking forward to it! I would have loved to have seen Michael Starke but he didn't play the role in anIn the end I caved and watched GS. It was so funny that I had to pause it more than once because I was crying with laughter. xy venues near me.

I wonder if anything will be changed from he last tour. I remember in Dublin it was still relatively big but when it goes into the Belfast Opera house I am wondering if it will be the same. :)

Very excited to see this as I missed it the first time round when it came near me (which was Dublin) I wonder if many of the previous cast will be back? Hopefully Sandra Marvin who I loved in London and she steals her current show Ragtime with her one number
