Just found out that the fabulous Katy Treharne (The Phantom Of The Opera) and golden voiced Stuart Matthew Price (Sweet Smell Of Success, Mack And Mabel, Shrek, Parade) will be joining the previously announced Betty Buckley as principals in Jerry Herman's Dear World at the Charing Cross Theatre next February/March. I'd already booked to see this on February 19th - now this news has made me even more excited about seeing it! The score is full of wonderful songs - and the vocals are going to sound awesome.

It's a wonderful score! It contains some of Herman's best ever songs IMO. I love the OBC recording with Angela Lansbury's amazing renditions - excited to hear Betty Buckley singing those songs!

And just read some more casting news - the brilliant Rebecca Lock (Avenue Q, Martin Guerre) will also be in the show. It just gets better and better!

How long is this due to be playing for?
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

Dear World is a musical adaptation of The Madwoman of Chaillot by Jean Giraudoux - a play that used to be much better known than it is today. There's a movie version of it with Katharine Hepburn in the title role.

Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!

I wasn't planning on seeing this really, but Katy is the best Christine I have ever seen in The Phantom of the Opera, so I may have to get tickets now!
