"Ricardo Afonso (Jesus Christ Superstar) will star as the titular Zorro and Diego, alongside Lesli Margherita (who will reprise her Olivier Award-winning role of Inez) and four-time Olivier nominated actress Emma Williams (Half A Sixpence) who will also reprise her role of Luisa. Further casting is to be announced."
Did Earl Carpenter play the father 10 years ago? My memory, which is not so good nowadays, is vaguely telling me he might've done. Or was it someone else ?
I believe he did for the pre-West End tour, though I didn't see it myself. In London it was Jonathan Newth, who was certainly more believable age-wise as Matt Rawle's father than Earl Carpenter would have been.
I've also remembered that Earl Carpenter was busy doing a stint in Les Mis at the same time Zorro was on in the West End. I first saw Les Mis a month after Zorro closed & he was my first Javert (sadly every Javert I've seen since has been a bit disappointing by comparison!). Now I'm on my laptop & have checked my notes and only Matt Rawle, Lesli Margherita & Nick Cavaliere did both the tour & the WE of the 6 leading roles. I wonder whether Nick Cavaliere might also come back for the concert?
