Please just get Emma back in the West End, she deserves a really big role to give her the wider public recognition she deserves

The only difference between regular theatregoers and those who visit perhaps once a year is that those who go regularly, are likely to see a wider breadth of show, but in my opinion what they actually LIKE (as a genre, I realise there are always productions that are exceptions) is probably as narrow as people who go once a year to see the RSC or a mega-musical or whatever. I go to the theatre fairly regularly, probably 2 or 3 times a month on average, but I tend to see a lot of musicals, and primarily West End hits. I do make an effort to see plays but don't see enough to really comment in any particularly intelligent way!
I also see snobbery as an issue although not directly with regards to the productions themselves.. Regular theatregoers often see theatre as 'their' thing.. they don't like other people getting in their way (withing mobiles ringing mid performance, or talking or just getting better seats or whatever) and big populist shows are the very manifestation of all these things, and are therefore inclined to make regular attendees more sceptical and harder to please!
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should

I don't recall her playing Eliza in the WE? For two weeks? Perhaps you are mistaken?

I agree with you 100% and the picture you paint is a very accurate one. She would be a very stupid girl to turn down any opportunity as to be honest I do not think she is getting a flood of overs, take over or new roles. The SOM issue has done serious damage to her reputation even if all the facts were not 100% clarified and only Emma knows the real story and I cannot see her ever divulging the facts of what went on unless some newspaper offers her serious money and with respect to west end theatre the press are not really interested in it or its stars as it does not sell papers. Sometimes you can be a big star in your own mirror and Emma needs to make sure that she does not think that way as if she does no one will hire her.
