'Grease' On Slippery Slope.

It was with great fanfare that the casting of Jimmy Osmond as Teen Angel in the London production was made a few months back.
It s now been announced that he will only play the show until Feb 28th and not the intended March 14th. Thats him just in the show for 6 weeks.
Feb 28th was a closing date given for 'Grease' back in September just a few weeks before the Osmond contract was made.
Is this a sign that the wonderful Piccadilly could be home once more to a decent production again?
"Grease' on a slippery slope' -I'm hoping so.

Oh no, let me see Jimmy first!! I have deftly managed to avoid this production completely but I'm a hopeless Osmonds fan and Jimmy is my joint third favourite one. I'd be a fool not to go.

'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' used to be my party piece at weddings birthdays and any family gathering when I was a kid! My mum was the original Mama Rose screaming at me 'Get up there and sing that one all your aunties like!'!

I wouldn't be at all surprised as a lot of people are talking about auditions on the horizon recently.
All be it in a scaled down production- just DONT mention this to SADM2!

Thanks Sam, thanks a lot. Thanks a whole bloody lot. Why don't you just go and burn my house down and then put out the flames by pissing on everything I've ever loved? Hating the Osmonds indeed.

This is a harrowing experience for me. I feel like I'm surrounded by wife beaters and kitten kickers. Although I must say, the Osmonds probably could destroy the universe with those teeth.
