I am very excited by this. Having spent 4 long years writing a PhD about their original production (and a few other things) I'm taking this casting as my reward.
Assuming the tickets go on sale later in the summer? isn't that about usual for the next Spring's season? they haven't said yet I don't think. But I guess they may if they issue an actual press release on casting?
It's Friday, I've got snacks, and the sun's shini... well, it's not raining at least! How can anyone fail to be in a good mood and consequently teetering dangerously over the line between "cheeky" and "rude" on a day like today?
Nathan Lane in talks to play Roy Cohn... according to Baz (yes, it is that time on a Thursday night again)
This is probably equal to Baz's Hamilton news on my excitement scale. The possibility of being able to see Nathan Lane live on a London stage for the first time in my life brings out emotions in me that I do not yet know how to translate into words!!
Andrew Garfield would make a great Prior, but I assumed he would be Louis, because presumably a Jewish actor would be ideal. Actually, Garfield would be great in any of the three leads so it doesn't really matter.
