Nikki us a wonderful Mrs J, in my view. And the look on her face in the final song is marvelous.
I'm seeing it for the final time on Thursday

Nikki and the current touring cast (apart from Marti) has proved to me how heartbreaking this show can be. A real testament to the show as it finishes in London.

Sean Jones is definetily my favorite Mickey. He has done the role so many times now that he plays the child role perfectly. It was even the first time I heard the audience "aww" at Mickey
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"

Just got in from the performance in Birmingham, bearing in mind I haven't seen it before, it was INCREDIBLE! All performances were amazing and on top notch including Marti Pellow's who I didn't have high expectations for based on previous reviews and his performance in Jekyll and Hyde, but his voice is brilliant, accent fine (occasionally going back to Scottish) but prescience really put me on ease as he lurked in the background. Even when he did sing/talk he was fierce at the right times.

One question: Which is the best recording to buy now? :)

Just thinking - have we actually got a final cast list for the next two weeks in London yet?

So was anyone in for cast change/original last night? Was watching from the sound desk (perks of the job), it was very emotional, and great performances all round.

Was in yesterday. Brilliant performances, especially from Vivienne Carlyle as Mrs. J.. And Philip Stewart's last Mad Man was wonderful to watch - has a smile on my face all the way through it.
www.bloodbrothersthemusical.webs.com has had some of the cast on there I think for a while now.
Lyn Paul, Sean Jones, Warwick Evans, Mark Hutchinson and I think Jan Graveson and Sarah Hay are returning. Warwick Evans was at the back of the stalls last night.
Will miss the show. A lot of fans were in last night.

Ahh ok, not sure then. We'll be seeing it twice before it closes.
