#297289 The Ongoing Wicked Discussion Thread

Posted Tettekete on 19 March 2014 - 06:05 PM

Just to clarify -- Willemijn isn't ill. She's dealing with an injury, and this was confirmed by a friend who was talking to Savannah at the stage door on Monday night. I hope she'll be back soon!

And I love the new photos of Savannah. What a stunning Glinda she is :) can't wait to see her and Willemijn in action again next month!


#295551 Phantom Cast Change

Just seen that Harriet Jones is now full time Christine bar Monday and Friday nights. Does that mean Olivia has left? I'm guessing Ashleigh Fleming is doing the other 2 evenings?


#283450 Singing In The Rain 2013/2014 Uk Ireland Tour

Posted theatre_kirsty on 10 November 2013 - 11:35 PM

As for the rain there was no chance of the audience getting wet. There was a pretty big gap between the stage and the audience.

Amy Ellen Richardson is fantastic as Kathy, so humorous and warm I liked her straight away. Stephane Anelli took me a while to warm up to but I enjoyed his performance. As for James Leece as Don Lockwood I wasn't too sure. He seemed to lack the certain charisma and confidence that Don requires. Maybe it's just me being used to Adam Cooper. He will probably grow into the role. Definitely worth seeing!

Hannah Levane has been announced as the new Joanne

YAY!!!

Saw the tour earlier in the year but booked again for November as I like Natasha Hamilton. Glad there are a few new additions to the cast who I also really like!


#270988 West Side Story Uk Tour Cast Announced

There have been good examples of 'ideal casting' for example Evita in the west end recently, pretty sure that on thekenwright tour there were no complaints about Rachel Wooding playing the lead...
Considering Eva Perón's heritage is French I'd consider that to be a slightly different issue anyway.

edit: And the Les Mis argument is an unrelated issue that has never made sense to me - the characters are speaking in their native language and their thoughts and spoken word are fluently transferred to the equivalent in any other language, respectively.

#262814 Matilda Musical

Posted canadian_turtle on 22 April 2013 - 03:03 PM

I was talking to someone over the weekend who saw the show over there and mentioned some of the lyrics have been changed to reflect the accents. I didn't realise at the time what he meant, but it must've been referring to School Song!

It reminds me of the producers, that transferred with much hype and big sales but died off after a year or so. The test for mormon will be if it can hold on to its buzz

Yes, but the difference being that the Producers was on at Drury Lane with a seating capacity of over 2100 and the Prince of Wales where BOM is playing seats 1160 - about half, so the tickets are going to be hotter for longer!

Ok Thank You :)


#252113 Les Mis Movie

It also made me remember just how boring the show is. I guess I'm just not a Les Mis fan.
