Considering the current weather, great timing for this announcement! I never saw it when it was on in the WE so might make a trip to Sadlers Wells (another new venue for me) if the tour doesn’t come to Manchester or Liverpool.
Adam was so glorious as Dom and his dancing is just superb. Not sure if we’d be looking for someone a little older, but someone like Laura Baldwin for Kathy maybe? I mean I’d LOVE for Scarlet to come back, but having settled in America and a young child in tow, it seems not.
Gosh, saw it in 2000 at the National, the standout performance for me was that of Lina ... wiki tells me it was Rebecca Thornhill! 19 years ago ... Audience at the front were given colourful umbrellas. Great fun. Saw it twice at the Palace too - 2011 says wiki.
Yes to Clare Halse, just right for the cute as a button Cathy. I really liked Dan Burton in Gypsy, he'd be a great Don or Cosmo (Simon Lipkin too tall??).
Another one looking forward to this. Saw it at the WMC in Cardiff a few years ago and it was excellent, except for the rain not working! Was hoping to do a double header with Hairspray but that finishes just before this starts.
