'La cage aux COLD'#1
Posted: 11/27/07 at 12:03pm
After a few cancelled previews due to almost the whole company getting serious colds and chest infections, the Menier Chocolate Factorys production of 'La Cage Aux Folles' gets its first preview tonight, Tue 27th Nov. Douglas Hodge who was due to play drag queen Albin is still quiet ill in hospital. At tonights performance the part will be played by his understudy, Spencer Staffford. It is still not known when or if Mr Hodge will return. Spencer Stafford has an impressive history of work in the West End with 'Tommy', 'Starlight Express', 'Cats', 'Chicago', 'Les Miserable', 'Beatiful and Damned', 'Singin In The Rain' and the recent 'Guys And Dolls' under his feather boa! The opening night has also been delayed to allow the production to settle.




A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

I wish I'd come up with that headline !

Poor Doug. I'm sure we wish him all the best. He was by far the best thing in Guys and Dolls and a revelation to see him perform in a musical too!

If and when he gets to be Albin i think it will be amazing. His comedy is perfect
