I know there is no OFFICIAL sound recording of the MILLIE in London. Does anyone have a resource for say: Songs like GIMME GIMME, FORGET ABOUT THE BOY, JIMMY, etc.

HAS ANYONE SEEN IT?

Thanks!

I've not seen it yet. I was planning to go see it early next year - but now that I see that Susan Egan is taking over the role of Millie on Broadway in February, I'll wait till I get to New York in March/April. I saw her in Cabaret and I'm sure she's going to be stunning in this show.

That's not for sure. She was tapped for the role.

Lol, in other words, any illegal recordings.. Well, no.

But the show is great, however Amanda Holden's voice would fare better on a CD than in performance I feel because her presence occasionally could be more, but still good.

I saw the show early on and again this week and Amanda's stage presence has certainly improved. I think they are planning to record it.

thank you,ruthiefan_felix.

actually my friend was in London this past week for looking at Cambridge and she found a pamphlet of it so she gave it to me :). looks great! i have a question, it said that on certain days mrs.meers would be played by Marti Webb. this is stupid, but this is a man,right?

I am sorry Bway_Mill_fan... but... Marti Webb... a man!?! She is a VERY famous performer!!! Andrew Lloyd Webber made the musical Song and Dance especially for her!!!! She appeared in the London recording of Song & Dance. She is the alternate Mrs. Meers. and I heard that she plays the role on Sat mat. and more. Sorry I do not know when she plays the role!!! The cast is actually quite OK. Amanda is not too bad... Maureen Lipman as MRs. Meers... what can I say... she is FANTASTIC!!!! The other cast is quite cool too! But for the 2 chinese boys, I do not understand A WORD they said!!! They ought to be speaking Cantonese (My mother language), but they were spealing some kind of Alien language!!! But I think you will DEFINITELY enjoy the show, the cas, the music and the plot!!! Though the seats are a little bit small in Shaftesbury Theatre!
