I hope not, she's been in the role too long.

That would be amazing. I had the pleasure of seeing her in MK with Earl and I think she's the best Christine I've ever seen. I would also love to see the Carlotta from the tour come to the west end also. She's not as amazing as Wendy Ferguson, but she's a close second!

She's also the current alternate in London, as Anna has now left to do Barnum. Don't think I'd be surprised if Anna returned at some point though.

Perhaps you saw her on an off night? I thought she was sublime.

I was struck by Phantom London running with an older Phantom, which ALW says LND needed,  and a LND aged Christine as alternate Christine -  it looked like a LND cast in waiting -  what happened to the idea of a LND tour?

Yes, I feel the same... It was the Lord's decision to create a sequel, and therefore imo, he should remember that when casting for the original...
