Harshly put, but you have a point. Celebrity culture means far much focus is put onto actors when you think that writers/ perhaps directors are the ones which have more longevity to their work.

Judging by Leicesters other musical efforts, this will be a right old cheap looking show.
Disagree with this. Their creative team for Finding Neverland made the show aesthetically impressive. Perhaps Hello Dolly wasn't great (in my opinion) but Gypsy was impressive too.

It does bother me though (for some reason) that his talents on stage are interrupted with thoughts that he's hard to work with.

Oh yes, definitely. I saw his Hamlet at Manchester Royal Exchange many years ago and of course Me And My Girl - he was fabulous with Emma Thompson (no less!) More recently great in The Entertainer.

Ultimately that is only what it should be about - if an artist can deliver on stage and Lindsay can. Unfortunately today the actors and the public get too involved in the celebrity, twitter, facebook, social media thing and really it should just be about the performance.
Absolutely. I've only seen him in this and Onassis but such a powerful stage presence made to look effortless.
And there's a video on YouTube of a Tony performance where he's doing similar hat tricks that he does in this.

But I do think Lindsay's a great performer.
