I wonder if Sam would do another national tour after doing Oliver! I would have thought West End and Broadway roles would be more likely.

Now's the time she should have little problem landing West End/Broadway roles, she shouldn't have to go on tour (I know it's not second rate in terms of production values however it has that perception). Would be amazed if she was in this tour.

Nothing wrong with going on tour especially one as big as Oliver! but I would think with the success of Les Mis the film, she can be more picky with roles. I think Sam would be great as Katherine in Newsies either on Broadway or if/when it comes to London.

There still loads of seats for Manchester run, it's obvious it's not selling well because the prices of seats are too high!! I rather see this in the west end where you would get more for your money but £75 is a bit much to ask?

It might not have anything to do with the prices being high - Lion King charges as much and sells just fine on the back of its name.  Wicked, while being a well-known show to people who have even a little interest in musical theatre, isn't a show that's in the public consciousness like Les Mis or Phantom.  I still think it needs a couple of names/people who can be marketed as 'West End/Broadway/movie star' to sell this, and it hasn't been hugely publicised yet.

And I'm sure I'm not the only one who's waiting until a cast announcement before deciding whether to buy tickets or not!

You think? Ha.

Yes, the show does not open for 8 months. Casting will be the only decider whether I see the tour or not.

well rehearsals wont start until July/August so unless they want to name the two leads early on like Phantom and Les Mis did for pr point of view it might not be until late spring. all depends how they are casting it and whether they know who they will get to lead it, or it they will just audition in the usual way
