Saw this this evening and was shocked how empty it was. I was upgraded from 19.50 tickets in the Upper Circle to 65 in the Stalls. I'd say theatre was 2/3 full if that!

As for the production, very good for what it was. We had 4 understudies on but no one major and to be honest I couldn't tell they all seemlessly fit in.

The bloke from Eastenders was SHAMELESSLY camp! I did shit myself laughing when it came out he had had it off with that girl in red!! It did make me think that they shud put Christopher Biggins in straight musical roles. Marius? Che? Rusty?

What, so campiness automatically means being a homosexual?

Seen the show a few times and John Partridge (aka the bloke from Eastenders) has never come across as camp to me. On stage and off stage. Being gay is not the same as being camp.

I agree, he wasn't camp at all when I saw it, I'm completely confused as to how his performance could be thought camp!

I thought John Partridge was excellent when I saw the show and not a "fan" especially.

off stage (having sat near him at events) he is incredibly camp and attention seeking. however on stage not as  nearly as bad

Obviously nothing wrong with being camp and I myself am gay etc etc etc

It's been on for nearly 5 months right? Maybe he was a bit bored and was jazzing it up a little. It deffinatly added extra layers to the characters complexity

Right, fair enough. But camp guys can be straight too. Especially choreographers/directors. In theatre you meet many of them. Many extremely camp. And then their wives come in.

Agreed, I was really impressed with his performance actually.
