I saw the last workshop and it was fabulous. I hope it happens. Sheridans departure is a real loss though as she was sensational in it.

I could visualise Sheridan being the perfect Bridget, so it's a shame to hear that she has dropped out. She has clearly realised that the role isn't for her and so the production has lost its momentum for the time being. As for Kerry, I personally couldn't see her as Bridget.

Wasn't it planned to go into The Savoy, think the producers were after the Adelphi at one point and also the Victoria Palace.

Never the Victoria Palace but yes to Adelphi and Savoy. The Savoy was booked for it.. Then Sheridan walked and rewrites were deemed a good idea... Then it stalled.
