Seeing some good musicals hit the roads, which otherwise wouldn't get a West End theatre.
Please God they cast someone I would pay to see more than once, rather than someone to avoid. There's been too many shows this year that I would have gone to see , but for the casting. I end up seeing something again because its got someone excellent in it, and ignoring the ones with the worst name casting. I get it that some names are very good in MT roles, but the biggest names that can sing are not going to end up on tours, and many that do are just proven bad casting.
I remember reading somewhere Brian Conley saying that he would love to play Gomez Adams. I'm not totally familiar with the Adams Family, but I would consider seeing this if he was cast!
Music & Lyrics may need some sort of name to sell this so who knows...maybe Jason Manford or Lee Mead as Gomez considering they are their Caractacus-es?...or Caractacai? Michelle Collins or Claire Sweeney as Morticia?
Also announced for the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury 23 - 27 May 2017.
Must say, I do hate it when in the event description they say "Featuring a LIVE orchestra"...I mean...YEAH? Obviously! It somehow cheapens it, suggesting that a LIVE orchestra is rarer to find in a musical, I don't know...

Really looking forward to this. Saw the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland production at the Edinburgh Fringe two years ago and loved it, without doubt the most lavish production at the Fringe I've ever seen. It would be great to see Caissie Muise who played Wednesday get a chance to perform the role again, it will be hard to top her take on the role.
