I'm only a member of ATG and What's on Stage. Just went into my 2nd year with Whats on Stage and have actually never used it at all :mellow:  It's something I think I'm going to try to make more use of over the next 12 months. I use ATG almost monthly, though!

I lied. Norm will actually be the 3rd black actor to play Phantom. South Africa has a black u/s Phantom who preformed the role, Nichola Nkuna.

We can but hope.

If Eventim (their official ticket retailer) is to be believed, then if you look at seats, it seems that it is selling well right into August time...

Although wasn't Thriller rumoured to be closing just prior to MJ's death, which resulted in a huge influx of sales? Personally, I can't wait to see the back of it either way.

I'm pretty sure Tam Mutu is leaving. And Chris Holland has confirmed he is leaving.

Yes, I believe Tam confirmed that he's leaving. There were some rumours he was going back to do Rebecca (as dates would match up for when rehearsals SHOULD start again - although it looks like that isn't happening AGAIN), but with Sierra now cast as Christine on Broadway, looks like that isn't happening now, so could be he decides to stay.

Who was the first black actor? Norm should be fantastic although kind of weird that he and Sierra are doing the show together considering they played father and daughter in The Little Mermaid.

Norm has commented on Little Mermaid:

Is it weird that Triton and Ariel are playing The Phantom and Christine together or do we just go with it?
I think we should just go with it. Sierra and I talked about it. We actually call each other “Daddy” and “Daughter.” In a way, the Phantom is kind of a father figure and there’s a mystique to their relationship that hopefully adds some contextual flavor to the role.

Yeah, yeah, but I saw the sequel, Norm. He is not just a father figure!
[Laughs.] OK, but we’re not blood related, so...
