Interesting. A white Eddie, that'll be a first for me.
Pleased to see Aaron Lee Lambert back after seeing him in London. Thrilled Allison Harding will be in it - it wouldn't be the same without her. I assume she'll be understudying Mary Laz as usual.
Rosemary Ashe will be interesting to see.
Slightly more enthused to see this now. I'll definitely book one of the matinees too.
Yes, I thought it was odd that they've cast a white Eddie. As has been discussed before, not many of the roles actually specify race, but you definitely come to expect it, given the past casting choices.
The cast does look very good though (and I do love Jon Robyns as a performer!), and it's coming to the Alex in Brum on my birthday, so I'll probably treat myself to a ticket.

So my heart has just sunk, Craig Revel Horwood has just announced that the cast will be playing the instruments ala Sweeney Todd with Patti and Michael. Including Alexandra playing piano and possibly percussion. I am slightly dreading this.
