I think Bill tends not to mention her as he gets quite upset.  She actually has a really special place in his heart.

I would have loved to see Blood Brothers one last time. I saw it a few times in the Phoenix and then when the tour came to Belfast. The fantastic show is a huge credit and testimony to all involved!

Does anyone know why it originally moved from the Albery/Noel Coward to the Phoenix? Given the Albery is 200 seats less than the Phoenix, they must have been selling well at the time to justify the move to the bigger theatre.

Well, in the speech on Saturday night, Kenwright said they were given their notice at the Albery.
By the way, does anyone know who the elderly actor was on Saturday night standing next to Bill Kenwright at the back of the stalls in the interval? He seemed familiar.

Just to let you know, Mark Hutchinson is returning to Eddie again on tour. (With Maureen Nolan and Marti Pellow). I wouldn't mind if Warwick Evans or Philip Stewart played the narrator again.
