It just gets better and better for the best production of 'Hairspray'!!! The box office is now taking bookings well into 2009.
That means one thing- there will be another Edna after Michael Ball throws away his frock!
Now who will that be?????

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'!'

Repeat after me- Des Barritt. Now keep repeating it until they take notice.

"That means one thing- there will be another Edna after Michael Ball throws away his frock! Now who will that be?????"

Unless he stays, he stayed 16 months in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Although I can't see that being for more than 6 months. Depends what's in the pipeline for next year and beyond I suppose.

Emmm Will have to think about who could take over when the time comes.

More pressing at the moment is Mel Smith leaving at the end of the month or is he staying? I've not heard any announcements about who's taking over.

Hairspray is bound to outlive Michael Ball's stay in the show but I really don't know who to replace him with. Still a long way off though.

Apparently Ian Talbot takes over from Mel Smith from Jan 28th.

Wasn't trying to contradict you Wickedboy. Just musing that if MB decided to extend for another 6 months beyond the Oct'08 he's currently contracted to, that would take him up to April '09. I think you're right though and Hairspray will run long after Michael has left. :)

Ria darling the comment wasnt at you. x
The show will get at least, the very least, 2 years in London.
Was that you outside the Shaftesbury last night collecting for the 'Hairspray CAST RECORDING fund'?

cheers re: A Bigger Can!

If I lived nearer to London I'd be there rattling my collecting tin every night of the week.lol!! I so want a recording to listen to but have put off buying both the the OBC or film recording, it has to be OLC recording or nothing for me, I'm afraid. Nothing else will do.
