Anyone seen Craig Chalmers in Joseph yet? If so, I'd love to know what people thought. Thanks!

saw the show last night. Craig did well, but I found the scottish accent very off putting. He did make a lovely speech at the end and brought Chris Barton ( another Joseph contender) to the front to include him. Singing wise he did fine, but I thought the whole production lacked a bit of spark. The sound wasnt great and I think a lot of the humour in the lyrics was missed as it couldnt be heard. Having said that the audience seemed to love it and it was only the third day of the tour. And the theatre was full.

Thanks for the review. If it comes near me then I'll see it as I saw the Bill Kenwright tour in May and loved it, and I would like to see Craig in the role.
