Why does this man get work. He's one of the most talentless people on the planet (in relation to his "name," that is).

I wonder if they'll cast Constantine as "Mr. Smee."

It doesn't sound like he is singing in this production, does it?

It says "pantomime."

I'm guessing there's no talking/singing.

Sorry FOAnatic, he'll be talking! This is a traditional English pantomime, where you normally have a principle boy (played by a girl) a pantomime dame (played by man) and an audience sing-a-long song at the end.

I'll try and find you a link. These days the casts tend to be dominated by z-List celebrities (so petty and minor that y'all wouldn't know who they are) so how have the mighty fallen!

The best panto dame in the country btw is Sir Ian McKellan.

I saw the Berwick Kaler one in York this year (it's mentioned in the article) and it was brilliant, a proper pantomime.
