Could the closing announcement all have been PR? I thought Brian Conley was closing the show? And I maybe wrong but the UK tour I think has announced all its Ednas, and the article does mention West End. Plus no replacement at the Shaftesbury announced yet

I cant think of a worse person to play this part.

Brian Conley's contract was for him to play the season before Christmas and release him for the already contracted pantomime in Southend and then return to the show in March.
The show was suddenly given notice in the West End and he was then given the tour dates.

But he is in it now? I assumed he was just in it from beginning to Feb to end of March then doing the tour?

Yea, he cancelled a short tour of his one man show he had planned for Feb and March that was planned even before he knew he was doing 'Hairspray' last year.

'Craig is really theatrical' are they saying he's basically a drama queen?

In fairness I quite like the bloke, and he has the background to pull it off but I'd rather not see Hairspray go down 'celeb of the week' casting.

Can't see it happening, even though the Shaftesbury is stuck for a show now until September.

Won't Craig be busy doing Chess over the Summer ready for the new tour?

'Chess' is what I thought about when I saw this post. I don't hold much hope for that tour as it is. We shall see.
