The previous thread seems to have been removed for some reason. But as it's finishing soon and is a long-runner, I thought there should be one on here.
According to his management website, Mark Michael Hutchinson (Eddie 1990-2006) will reprise the role for the final two weeks at the Phoenix. I assume more casting will be announced as some of the current cast leave on the 27th October. Will miss the show. Who would be your ideal cast members?

Going to see this for the first time on the tour in Birmingham! Really excited!! Just have a few questions so:

SPOILER WARNING!!!-----------

1) At the end when the twins die, where is the policeman when he shoots the gun? Is he onstage or in the audience, if so which part/aisle ?
2) Are there any other gunshots or loud noises apart from the end in the play?

SPOILER


In audience on the right hand side.
Good to be seated on that side toward the front if you want to feel part if the drama

SPOILER:
The gunshots are loud and come from the policemen in the aisle as well, right hand side of the auditorium.
The only other loud noises are the two gunshots in the Robbery but they aren't as loud as the ones at the end.

Yup, now I'm glad I've got tickets to the final performance. Wonder who else they've cast.

Lyn Paul has been tweeting about rehearsals for the final 2 weeks. Looks like the best Mrs J will be the one rounding it all off.

Thanks for the gun advice btw :) so excited to see this now! Someone tell me, have Marti and Nikki had good reviews for their roles? I know Marti's acting was bad in Jekyll and Hyde but as he's the narrator am I right in assuming he doesn't have to "act" as much?

Glad to hear about Lyn Paul returning to the show although it would've been nice to see Barbara Dickson in the role.
The narrator has a lot of acting and is on stage a lot. I think he's had mixed reviews.
