Hey all, does anyone think that Lee Evans will return to The Producers? i say he should, he made that part his own, also what other shows do you think he should be in? i say he could pull off being Bobby in A Chorus Line and maybe Micky from blood Borthers, whats your views?

lee evans will not return to the producers, and will probably not do another musical. he likes to try different things and move on to the next. he actually said this himself.

as far as suiting mickey in blood brothers..... no.

Not usually a fan of Mr Evans, but was plesently surprised by his turn in the Producers, especially against Nathan Lane. In fact I haven't made a return trip because I've not heard anything about the replacement casts that indicates they were better at making so much of (IMO) the weak material...

He is BRILLIANT in that role, im sure if they offered him enough money he would do it. He would be a HUGE draw on tour. I hope its true and that he does the whole tour

Well in all actualness...it says it closes at The Drury Lane.

I have got it very good authority thats its heading to The Piccadilly. ATG do not want to risk bringing a new show in now until late 2007 - so with their excellent relationship with ATG the two have struck a deal to transfer the show. Its recouped very early so its profited well.

well all i know is that weeks ago i was told it would end dec january and kick off its tour in feb and with the recent announcement of its closing in jan it makes sense that the rest of is true.

i would also stake mine and all my freinds and loved ones lives that it is touring as my best freind works for the manchester palace as foh manager and she confirmed it weeks ago that they had producers.They had to decide between producers and guys and dolls and took the producers so there sister theatre the opera house has got guys and dolls

lol
