#259710 A Chorus Line

Saw the show this evening, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt who plays Diana and Gary Wood who plays Paul were both absent. They were covered by Georgie Ashford and Michael Steedon. Was really interesting to see the covers as I have seen the show before and it definitely mixed it up a bit. It was a really fantastic performance and the tap dancing is always one of my favourite parts. I love Leigh Zimmerman, she really is Sheila, can't imagine any one else playing that part. The chemistry between John Partridge and Scarlett Strallen is fantastic too, both really strong dancers and John is incredible during the tap. Love the finale, I could listen to 'What I did for love' all day! Will definitely go again.

Hairspray doesn't come off tour till October, so A Chorus Line will have had a decent run. It's not a popular show over here, and so I think if it does shutter in October it'll have done well. It's planning to tour though.

Though I know Hairspray also looked at The Palace between Singing in the Rain and The Commitments. Got their pick of houses it would seem.

I think it will definitely run until when it is supposed to. I've seen it and I don't get why it wouldn't be a popular show? I really enjoyed it and thought the cast was really strong. Think it will do well on tour and it deserves positive reviews. I will definitely go see it again.
