She's different to Gillian, but she is very good. She nails the nasty bits, but also has a few comedic moments too which worked well - especially her reaction to being made president of Ultraglow, that was hilarious.

This tour I'd say is as strong as the last tour - only difference I could see was Motormouth now has a new wig for YCSTB which looked great. I was very impressed with the whole production.

Not as feminine as Michael Starke or Michael Ball - but it still worked, and he had some very funny moments. He's a surprisingly good singer, none of the songs had to be transposed down for him to sing them.

Motormouth has a new wig? what does it look like? normally she has the feathered wig that depending on the version either looks wonderful and fluffy or flat and messy! LOL
