Really hope this transfers as this is one of my all time favourites. A west end run would be fantastic.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

Will kind generous gracious honourable Cameron let it come in?

When it was on at the National I saw Martine McCutcheon as Eliza.
So was I lucky or unlucky. I think Jo Riding was the understudy (someone tell me if I have recalled that incorrectly) and I bet she would have been far better.

We saw Alexandra Jay as the understudy at the National who gave a stunning performance. I think Joanna Riding took over the role when it had moved to Drury Lane.

Very much looking forward to our trip to the Crucible this Thursday - snow permitting of course!

It is a great show. But, between you and me, they would need a big name in the lead for it to run for any period of time. Yes a real shame as I am sure Eliza is great as she is - but for a long run you need a name. And I dont mean Strallen !!
I hope it comes to London - I organise groups from work and my lot would love this.

Alexandra Jay (1st) and Kerry Ellis (2nd) were understudies at the Nash.  The former was sensationally good.  However, I think this Crucible production is much stronger and would love it to come to the West End... but with Carly Bawden.  I would pay just to see her performance of "I Could Have Danced..." again.  Do you not think Dominic West is a name enough to draw them in?

Oh God, please not Merrily.  Mind you, think My Fair Lady would be rather cramped at the Harold Pinter.

In Merrily, in Opening Doors:

Franklin
I saw My Fair lady...  
I sort of enjoyed it.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

You'd think My Fair Lady would be quite the crowd drawer though.
If I stay awake, it must be good.
