I can't begin to express how excited I am that the wonderful, brilliant Tony Sheldon will get to make his Broadway debut as Bernadette. I can't think of an actor who deserves it more - to get the chance to premiere in both the West End and Broadway is no more than he deserves for his brilliant performance. There aren't many actors I'd travel the world for, but Tony sure is one. I saw him on Oz and in London and I will be sure to see him on Broadway. If I could, I'd squeeze in Toronto too.

You mean Oliver Thornton? I thought it interesing that Adam/Felicia not yet cast. I wouldn't mind betting they are trying hard to secure him for Broadway but will Equity allow two stars to not be from the US?

Mind you we have a whole Broadway cast in London for Hair so you never know??

Sorry doll, i meant Oliver!
If they think he isn't a 'star' name I'm sure we can run up a list of 'stars' they've sent us in very recent times!
Lets face it, after the audience fall in love with Tony how can they not with Oliver's performance, its incredible, esp if you knew him 2 years ago. NOBODY would have said he would have given that performance you see now

Yeah have to agree with Oliver, I never thought I would say he was actually good in a role (shocking in Les Mis and Phantom, ok in Rent), but he has found his perfect match in Priscilla and rightly deserves recognition
