That's wonderful to hear about Michael and Leanne :) Sounds like they're loving it too much to leave!
Everything in life...is only for now.

I wouldn't be surprised if they may even close the show now. It would be great to see the show close on a mega high. I've said this before and Ive heard they have played with the idea.
I don't think it will close in July- maybe Sept or Oct!
I have a really strong urge to see this FABULOUS production again...and soon!

I understand that Michael swears that July WILL be the end. He has talked about doing a concert tour in the autumn, which would be a tad difficult if he were still doing the show in October.

I seem to remember Verity Rushworth was sh*t on Soapstar Superstar. But then again, I didn't rate Elinor Collett too highly either. At least Verity's funny.

There's a college trip in the works for this. I think I'll have to put my name down now.

in regards to the verity on soapstar being s**t comment.... so do I.

but then again look at Adrian Edmonson on Celeb Fame Academy.... he made out he couldnt song at all and played upto it.... but actually he has a fantastic voice... and was demonstrated when he played brad in the rocky horror show in in 1990... and again when he revived it for the gala performance at the royal court in 2006...

Nigel Planer is in bloody everything!

I wasn't overly a fan of whatsherface as Penny, there were quite a few times where I felt there should be a lot of laughs...but weren't, because of her delivery/general performance.

I need to get back to the show and see it, ensure I get Leanne this time - I liked Charlotte Rigby(? I may be wrong..) the first time I saw her, but since she seems to have gotten incredibly annoying.

Fancy seeing Michael again too!

Nigel Planer certainly gets about a bit these days!

I quite like that girl from Emmerdale but not sure if she can sing!

Kec-is Michael just thinking about touring or is it something more concrete? I'd really like to see him on tour (he cancelled the last time I had tickets)

Nothing concrete as yet, i.e. no confirmed dates, but he did tell his fans that a tour would be happening. With a new CD coming out to commemorate his 25 years in the business, why not celebrate with a tour?

This tour will be so big for him after the 'Hairspray' experience.
I wonder what he'll do next now he's turned down 'Barnum'?

As you know, this is one of my favourite shows ever, when I just see it, I have the same urge to see it again, easily the best show to come over from Broadway.

Thanks Kec-I finally got to see Michael 'in the flesh' in Hairspray and would like another chance but a tour would be great too!!

P.S I think you were also there when I almost saw him on the last tour in Cardiff re: Jones, Ball, Ellis extend....Planer and girl from Emmerdale join

His concerts are pretty amazing evenings and if you can, get hold of the DVDs.

Sooner or Later, were your cancelled tickets for Cardiff in 2005? I was at that one as well. I did get to see him in Cardiff, finally a couple of years later.

Mamma, those DVD's are indeed great, especially the Donmar one. I saw a variation on the Donmar show when he performed in Singular Sensations at the Haymarket in 2004 -- just fantastic. Of those three, only the Alone Together is available in the U.S.

Thanks for that-I keep meaning to buy a dvd of Michael's now I have some names I might actually do it!

Blimey 2005! It doesn't seem that long ago (but yes it was!) Since then I never managed to see his concerts but did at least see him live in Hairspray.
