As far as I'm aware, the make up is designed to be sweat off/run the more the show progresses, but if it was that much of an issue for him then they definitely need to do something. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the glitter got in his eye or something and that was what was irritating him so badly.
Otherwise, I'm enjoying these early reports and I can't wait to hear how he settles into the role. Looking forward to seeing him at the end of September!
If they ever decided to cast a woman and she was willing/available, I'd say Amanda Palmer would be outstanding.

It seemed to be going for Robin Hood Men in Tights and less Princess Bride. Personally, I enjoyed it. It's ridiculous and campy and a good way to spend an hour on a Sunday evening. Though I think the guy who plays King Richard understands the sort of comedy the show was aiming for better than most of the cast (save for Sid and the chef).
PIPPIN Movie Cast Dec 29

I'm just going to throw the idea out there for George Blagden as Pippin. He was Grantaire in the Les Mis movie and has loads of training in musical theatre, but has been doing more television than anything else. If you YouTube him, he puts up a lot of covers and has a wonderful voice and I think would be an excellent fit for the role.
Worst and best examples of stunt casting. Aug 17

Personally, I think some of the best "stunt" casting I've seen would be Billie Joe Armstrong as St. Jimmy in American Idiot. He was better in the role than Tony Vincent, in my opinion, and definitely kept that show afloat much longer than it would have been had he not stepped in (especially given some of the other stunt casting they did for that role in his absence).
New Camelot tour-- any info? Jul 20

My friend Andy is going to be on this tour, though I don't know for sure who he is playing. The guy is damned talented though, so if the rest of the cast is up at his level, the acting/singing should be really on point at least.
The Last Five Years Movie - New Info Coming! Jul 15

Any idea what it cost to actually make the movie? Maybe they should just find a way to release it online or VOD or something if they can't do a theatrical release.
Not for me Jul 6

I saw one production photo where you very clearly see a red banner that says "OCCUPY" on it. So I believe it is supposed to be set in more present day, though maybe not any specific location since the Occupy movement ended up sort of world wide. Makes me think of the setting for the UK JCS arena tour.

I do if it's a show I ended up liking enough to want to buy merch from (more often than not, I do). My usual purchases usually end up being a souvenir programs and/or a mug, if they have them. But definitely the souvenir programs for sure over the mug.
