#299280 Dream Casts

Posted mrtheatre123 on 04 April 2014 - 08:27 AM

Although I personally hate the show I would love to see Sabrina Aloueche as Elphaba in Wicked, I know its a part she wants and would love if she got to play it one day!

Brian May and Roger Taylor were there at the last closing night that was called off!

#298770 Bad Behaviour At A Show

Posted EmiCardiff on 30 March 2014 - 02:32 PM

I had an interesting conversation once with a father of a young teen (I think she was 11) when ushering 'Priscilla' after explaining there was an 'age guidance' of 15 plus and apologising that he hadn't been told when booking he gave the most mature parental reaction to something not going to plan I'd encountered as an usher, simply saying "I'd rather she hear and see these things with me in the theatre than somewhere we can't have a conversation about it"

As it turns out she didn't bat an eye at the content or the swearing except to be horrified at the use of the word 'fags' (which is more than I can say to the many adults laughing at it)

I think it's so unfair of them if they were to bring back old cast members to perform at the final show. I think it's so disrespectful to the current company who should be closing the show. I think old cast members could maybe come onstage for some sort of final medley but that's it really.

WWRY should invite all the critics to the last night.

#295096 Wicked - The Movie

Posted Catqc on 04 March 2014 - 05:45 PM

I hate movies of things I love because they tend to be very different and 'spoil' the book/musical for me so unless this gets amazing reviews I probably won't see it!

Lol shes a british actress in america....of course she is going to say that. Same as how every american actor loves thr uk and its people. Its all PR

And in a way she is right, US audiences show their appreciation and enthusiasm more, not necessarily a good thing (applauding entrances, standing ovations etc)

Sorry I disagree.  Writing a post doesnt necessarily mean its always just someones opinion, depending on the subject being discussed it could be a fact (with actual proof of the issue in question)

Im also with posterj on the name thing, just because on a one time meeting a performer says thats what you can call them (to speed things along and make things less awkward) I would still use  their proper name outside of that situation

Especially because even if you can't pronounce someone's name, spelling it should still be easy enough when you can just copy and paste it. This is an online public forum, not a conversation between two people at the stage door.

Booked for next Wednesday - not seen it in over a year as I disliked Louise in the role. Is Willie on?

Willie?? Who's that? Matt Willis left the show a while ago. I'm sure you meant Willemijn.

I thought Emma Hatton was wonderful, and can see her becoming truly great with time and experience.

Yes, I'm sure Willemijn will have more holiday dates before the one day she has scheduled to be off so far. And there's a huge chance for some standby shows around Christmas time, I'd imagine :)

I'm sure they will add more holiday dates for Willemijn soon - I can't imagine her going right through until June without a break!

The muck-up matinee was absolutely brilliant - so glad I decided to go!
Here are just some of my favourite muck-ups:

- Gina continuing to sing and hold her note in 'No One Mourns the Wicked' when she gets interrupted.
- Gina calling Boq "Beq/Beck" all through the show, instead of Biq.
- Gina: "it seems the broccoli is boiled" instead of "it seems the artichoke is steamed".
- Gina's whole Popular scene: Adding the little post Toss-Toss giggle that Louise used to do as 'Glinda'/doing the splits/putting about 4 different pink flowers all over Louise's hair/clothes instead of just one/etc.
- Gina: "I hope they don't get lost. I should have given them the sat nav!" - this one literally cracked me up.
- "Glinda, is it true she was your BFF?" to which Gina had to respond with: "well, it depends what you mean by... BFF" - it was too funny.
- Ben saying "you're hot" instead of "you're good" to Glinda.
- Ben: "Well, she clearly doesn't give a marmite finger what anyone else thinks!" in the DTL scene.
- Ben rushing back on stage asking "yes?" after Elphie calls after him before I'm Not That Girl, then quickly running back off again.
- Ben saying "Why thank you" when Elphie tells him he still looks beautiful in the last scene.
- One of the flatheads in 'One Short Day' was open and a backstage member ran across the stage after it from one side to the other. The rest of the song was performed by just two flatheads.
- Louise doing a hilarious dance in DTL for Gina to then have to copy. So funny!
- Ben swinging back a couple times before finally saying "Let the green girl go".

These are just some of the ones I remember, there were definitely more. And I realise some were done by previous casts before, but most (particularly Gina's) were original.

#281548 Miss Saigon Revival Is Happening

Posted Titan on 22 October 2013 - 09:43 AM

Well its based on one persons posting so its rumour at this stage, but a likely one

And its not like she is Madonna, she could easily launch an album (which has a small market) and do Sunday concerts etc.  And she can take shows off if any concerts are midweek.  Plenty of musical theatre people have done it before.
