Still no actor for Tony Blair listed on the official website...will Sheen be announced?

Or, as in the Guardian article, will Mr Blair be one of the PM's Peter Morgan chooses to omit?

It would in my opinion be better if the play stopped at a certain year and did not include Blair, Brown nor Cameron. Otherwise there is a danger it would fall into farce, or into an unhappy ending. The UK has endured these last 3 PMs; I doubt anyone has been inspired by any of them. Then again, the same could be said about several.

Should be interesting!

Maybe there's a twist ending where she divorces Prince Philip and gets married to Edward Heath.

That's Cameron
But he won't do matinees

Why is it, that a show that's sold out isn't allowed to recast?
Instead Private Lives  that we haven't seen for ten minutes is coming in?
Guaranteed rent contra and bonuses - what do you think?
And the death of 'angels'

You may argue, but that is the beauty of a limited run.

It probably is allowed to recast, but I'm fairly sure Helen Mirren won't be available for more than the limited season and she's the one we're all coming to see.

Indeed, no Blair in the play. The film more than covered that, after all.

I wonder if the producers and playwright understand this.
