The platform never spins during Another One Bites The Dust - do you mean Play The Game?

I'm not surprised Killian has an alternate - Chad Kimball's voice was shot by the end of his run on Broadway.  The guy on tour didn't sound healthy at the end of the out either.

I've seen the show 6 times (Broadway, London x 2, Liverpool, Nottingham and now Leicester) and "You're Timeless to Me" has always featured scripted corpsing.

The corpsing was before that song yesterday - it's normally during the song and in the reprise that they corpse.  I have to be honest, I don't think that corpsing was scripted yesterday.

He did a better job of making it look unscripted than previous Wilburs then - very funny

I saw this yesterday and really enjoyed it.  It was weird seeing brand new choreography when I pretty much know all the original choreography having seen both UK tours a total of 8 times.

The stars for me were Becky Craven as Tracy, who was fantastic and had a lovely voice, Claudia Kariuki as Motormouth and Zizi Strallen as Penny who was hilarious - her 'dancing' was hilariously awful.  I also really liked John Barr as Wilbur (he corpsed in the second act which set everyone off), Tyrone Huntley - who got to show off his great voice, and David Witts as Link.

The only one I wasn't too sure about was Damian Williams as Edna.  He was alright, and I didn't mind the masculine voice as Mark Benton had a masculine voice too and I liked his Edna.  For me, the problem was Damian shouted almost every single line in the show - if he'd toned it down, I'd have liked his performance more.
