"Summer Strallen will succeed Connie Fisher as Maria von Trapp in the Andrew Lloyd Webber-produced London production of The Sound of Music.

The cast change, which according to the Daily Mail, will take place Feb. 25, is part of another Lloyd Webber television tie-in.

Instead of a reality television talent show, Strallen has been appearing in the TV series "Hollyoaks" in which she plays an aspiring actress. Later this month, the plot will see Lloyd Webber appear as himself for three episodes during which he "discovers" Strallen's character (called Summer Shaw) and casts her as the lead in The Sound of Music..."

Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

It's a weird way to publicise all of this (Hollyoaks?!?!?!), but more power to Summer I guess.
Everything in life...is only for now.
