I have to say I find this all very odd.Another day another venue announcement but no cast.Can anyone else think of a show where rehearsals start in 6 days but no cast announcement ??

I really hope the Will Young rumour is just that, a rumour.  I really like Will and think in the right role he is good (e.g. The Emcee) but a Sam he is not

And yes shows do sometimes enter rehearsals without officially announcing the cast.

The Ghost tour is being handled pretty badly with the drip feeding of venues and lack of cast announcement when everyone seems to know (except who is playing Sam).

The marketing for Ghost whilst it was in London was bad, I was hoping they would have realised this and upped their game for promoting the tour. Do many fans get left in charge of official twitter/Facebook pages or is this the producers being a bit lazy?

I get the sense that when the casting announcement finally comes, the excitement won't quite be there because of how frustrated a lot of people seem to be that it has taken this long. People just want to know now, officially. People have been mentioned on here as being cast, if they can talk about it, can't they just confirm it? I'm waiting until casting is announced before I book, I love the show but the cast needs to make me feel like the show is in safe hands.

Agreed, the show has been badly produced from day one

West End people using fans to run their social networking is more common but ive not heard of shows doing it.  But hey a fan who probably works for free (they usually do) except for maybe the odd free ticket and the status of being their pages webmaster

I have to agree about the lack of lead cast announcements but I guess we only have to now wait until next week

If the Will Young rumour turns out to be true that is ridiculous, thats even worse than the Mark Evans casting.  Will Young is great, but a Sam he is not!
