I thought I would make a thread for EVERYTHING little voice!

With only 6 weeks to go, this production is fast approaching, and I for one, am VERY excited, i've just seen the rather gorgeous poster for this show (Ive posted it below) and this is just making me even more anxious for this show, I really think this will be a flop or a runaway success!

What are you guys all thinking, who's booked and whos excited?

I'll see it if I can get comps - it looks really queenie-gay (not a bad thing in and of itself) but also like the sort of show which will force an enema of syrupy uplifting-ness upon the audience while whacking them with the conceptual cricket bat.

I'm a little aprehensive about Diana Vickers tbh. I loved her on the X Factor but don't know if she's got the voice or acting chops to be a good LV. I love the play though so shall hopefully be making a trip down for it.

Fabulous play!
Not sure if it will work this time around.
Its a dark piece and that art work sells it all wrong.

I really like the artwork, but i do think you might be right in that it doesn't reflect much of the darkness in the play, just the brighter almost magical side of it. I'm actually very excited at the prospect of seeing this, i love Lesley Sharp, and although i think Marc Warren seems a bit too young and attractive to play Ray i think hes a very good actor.

Re Diane Vickers, i really liked her on X factor, but do kinda have the same concerns that everyone else has re her voice. However i don't think Jim Cartwright would risk his reputation, by bigging her up as much as he as unless there was some truth to it.

I think this works or fails purely on the strength of LV herself no matter how good the supporting cast is.

Its a shame they dropped the original idea of getting old comedians in to play Ray. Ronnie Corbet and Jimmy Tarbuck were approached, among others, and were very keen.

I think that's half the appeal of him. When he's all buffered up he's not as pretty but when he looks a bit grubby the man is sex on legs!
