'I wonder what would happen if I gave myself a break, and came to the realisation I have no talent and should never even set foot in a London theatre again?'

The answer is: The world of Musical Theatre would be a better place! lol!

A late entry:

"Sure, I'll be fine taking a crap here. After all, nobody's watching."

PS Don't let Wicked anywhere near you with his corny old "I'll sew that up for you" routine!!!

and bless all those dear sweet critics....



Darius Danesh is a sturdy, manly Rhett, with a good, deep voice and bags of swaggering arrogance.
He is clearly talented - Daily Express

he has the sauntering suavity that Gable brought to the role of Rhett - The Times


The diabolically dashing Darius Danesh (of Pop Idol fame) brings a seductively insolent charm, a dark velvet voice and a genuine, fugitive pathos to the cynical blockade runner - The Independent

Mr Danesh has a husky bass voice and is dashing, even if, with his mutton chop whiskers and long legs, he resembles a Victorian villain from a Monty Python sketch. - The Mail

Darius Danesh also endows the morally dubious Rhett Butler with a graceful virility and residual guilt.- The Guardian

the true star of the show is Darius Danesh, ....with a performance of subtlety and roguish charm as Rhett Butler - Metro

Darius Danesh, him off Pop Idol, scored a personal triumph as Rhett..... he commanded the stage, kept his accent together and even found a new way to say "I don't give a damn" - New Statesman

Darius Danesh’s Rhett has all that’s required, devilish eyes, a sonorous voice, a lot of slicked black hair and something extra too, the god-like swagger of a young Sean Connery. - Spectator

...Darius Danesh as the dashing daredevil Rhett Butler, whose voice could charm the birds from the trees.- Mail On Sunday

Darius Danesh's Rhett - growly and smugly disdainful - was dominating,- the Observer

Bestriding this shallow world like a colossus, and the only reason this gets two stars rather than one, is Darius Danesh, commanding and charismatic as that “insufferable peacock” Rhett Butler. - The Sunday Times

Darius Danesh cuts an imposing figure. His dark looks, deep voice and stature are apt for this roguish romantic hero - The Official London Theatre review

has a surprisingly authoritative and charming presence as Rhett - Bloomberg.com

Darius Danesh as Rhett Butler has more star power and several decent chances to show off his resonant bass voice.- Variety

Darius Danesh is something of a revelation. The former Pop Idol sings marvellously - The London Paper review

and so on.

This is a guy who could be a great musical theatre performer and actor but he gets no positivity or even fair coverage from the national media or from a large section of the UK public who are very vocal in dissing him although they have never personally seen him live on a stage.

I wouldn't deny that he is talented, or determind.

He did what he said he would to the Pop Idol judges get himself a No1 selling record. Good for him. I was delighted when he proved them wrong and got what he wanted.

Handsome, booming voiced, dashing and all that, he is too. I am sure he will continue to bedazzle us with his charms and talent in many West End shows - but for most people he does come across as a pillock! Lovely though I am sure he is!

I totally agree but he has to get rid of his 'up himself' attitude. All being said, i wish him luck because he his very talented and very determined.

I don't understand this " he's up himself" allegation at all.It's just as far from the truth as I know it, as the claim that he's talentless.

Have you ever worked with Darius Danesh or perhaps met him at social events or at the stage door or anywhere else?

I've always found him to be a true gentleman who treats everyone with respect.

It saddens me that many people in the UK nowadays seem to equate being articulate and well mannered with being a snob and that the media seem to positively champion 'chav' culture.

Not one person on here thinks he's talentless. He just loves himself to such a degree that the general public back off from giving him the support he would receive if he acted like any normal performer- thats the point people are trying to convey here.
You joined the board today just to say that???

I never join a discussion board straight away. I always just read at first. I register only when I can no longer remain silent and only if I intend to continue to contribute as a member.
