Not really a suprise that there should be an accompianist at the RUG office.  
I would expect there to be several people who were capable of playing with any performer.
I too was disapointed with the candidates as I was looking for another Andrew Derbyshire, (Justin Timberlake meets David Beckham with just a touch of Graham Norton for luck)

The only guy that came on and as soon as I saw him thought he was good looking and had a good voice was the last guy to be selected (I think his name was Anthony Hanson).

Did anyone else spot Daniel Boys (who's been in Rent, Grease etc...) or was it just me seeing things?!!!

I didn't notice whether Daniel Boys was there or not, sorry -
though if you let me know roughly when in the programme you thought you saw him,
I'll have a look for him, 'cos I videoed it.


I DID notice, & was very impressed by, professional actor (new to me) Lee Mead.....

As well as being very 'watchable', I think he came over well.
I hope he does well via the series (whatever its result).

Yes I spotted him too, I just wish they'd shown his audition.  I love his voice

Lee Mead played Chris in Miss Saigon in Birmingham on the performance I saw and he was excellent.  Currently understudying Raoul in Phantom isn't he?

I won't be called a baggage!

I have to say, I thought the programme was even more horrible than I thought it would be.  There's something that's so offensive about the public humiliation which is shovelled onto the auditionees for the sake of watchable television - exacerbated considerably by LW swanning around opining about how - with an apparent total lack of irony - it's a really complex part to cast.

Also Grindrod getting all Simon Cowell is totally unnecessary, and offers a hugely warped and twisted impression of both the reality of the process, and the reality of life for hundreds of turns and twirlies in London every day.  For the record - and for the performers out there - can you possibly imagine what would happen if you went crashing back through the door into a dingy studio somewhere, with your other half pleading your case for you, every time you'd done a terrible audition?

I know it gets lots of people into the theatre, and I understand that that's a good thing, but it's not something I'll ever have anything other than total loathing for.

The three guys who went back to ALW's office didn't make me cringe as much as that girlfriend who felt she needed to fight her boyfriend's corner! Very embarrassing, neither came off in a good light from that!
