#301583 Bad Behaviour At A Show

Doesn't "spitroasting in the stalls" warrant a whole subset of bad behaviour at the theatre??!

Some of them were even in Doctor Who costumes.  I thought it was a bit sad to be honest...

I think Phantom needs a lick of paint... and that dressing room set needs an oiling....

I have also heard those stories, but its the show itself that sells the tickets! CamMac doesn't need to stunt cast on it yet! Phantom needs a bit of a boost if anything at the moment. Wouldn't be surprised if we saw Michael Ball in the title roll there in the next 5 years..

Maybe he could play the silent role of the candle sticks that get stolen?

Shes also worked with ramin karimloo who is obviously one of camerons favourites.  I dont doubt for one second her contacts/relations helped her appeal to casting directors

I'm not convinced Gilligan can pull this off. Needs a lot of personality and stage presence. Killian nails it every night & Mcintosh wasn't far off him. Fear the worst for the show its already frequently heavily discounting and really needed for me eithier someone known or with the sheer charisma & balls to do it.

Everyone will fight hard for a role. She sounds like a nightmare to work with tbh!

I've just looked at her twitter and she is riveting!

She doesn't want to be idolised  today apparently.
Maybe civilians  bow to her as she walks along the street.

Oh dear that was a bit embarrassing.

Who is this person ? What has she done except take over as the 365th Eponine in this dusty old show?

Sounds like her agent needs to give her social media training.

I completely disagree with tagging in people in tweets where you are saying something negative because I bet you wouldn't go up to them.and say face to face what you are tweeting about.

However if she is searching twitter for her own name (not the first to do so in fairness) you have to expect to find something you wish you hadnt seen. People who do this do seem to be on the more fragile side of the performer world.

To me James Blunt has to be the best at replying to negative tweets, for anyone who doesn't follow him I recommend checking him out, funny guy

I also thought Darvill was very good - a better actor than Declan Bennett, though not as good a singer, but he performed all the songs so well it didn't matter.  I miss the old ensemble though, they were so much more vibrant and so much more in sync - I realise it's not been long since cast change, but they had rehearsal time, and so I was quite disappointed overall, I expected better.  Zrinka was fabulous as usual, she'll definitely be missed.

I was quite irritated by the number of Darvill fans at the stage door who clearly hadn't seen the show and completely ignored/pushed past the rest of the cast who were trying to get out for a break...
