There was an advert for dancers of asian/oriental decent for this production in The Stage about 3weeks ago..so they're probably in the last stages of auditions etc.

Marti Webb did the first UK tour of the London Palladium production, but not sure if that was 2005. I know it toured again in a more scaled down version of that production not too long ago.

Maria Friedman will be playing Anna.

Does anyone have any idea what the costumes will be like? 'Cos if Daniel Dae Kim's fine Korean sixpack is going to be on display, I'm going to want to sit as close as possible. re: The King, Maria, Albert and Who??

Does 'Lost' get any better thru series 4?
At the moment I'm about 4 or 5 episodes in and it is total crap- a BIG let down after such a great start in series 1 to 3. Do i plod on or abandon all hope that i get thru to series 7 (if they make as many as they promised!)
Help!

Apparantly its only going to Series 6 as the current series on Sky (series 5)is being promoted as 'penultimate'.

And yeah Series 4 does improve, the problem is its the one that got affected by the writers strike so its not quite up to the usual standard.

How many subplots? Jez!
I know originally they said six but some time last year one of the creators said that the studio had asked them to stretch to one more. If they do go to seven they are going to have their work cut.
So, it is worth getting thru 4 then yea?

yeah I enjoyed season 4 in the end, but I agree it can be tough going, the flash forwards dont help. Stick with it, some questions are answered, but as always many more are asked!! It sets up series 5 nicely

I gave up last weekend and said 'no more' and put the DVD away. I'll try again this weekend. Is worth watching just for Jack and Sawyer!!!

ok in 2005 it looks like you saw the second scaled down tour so it wouldnt have been Marti Webb as mentioned above.

I saw both tours as well as Elaine at the Palladium.

I think Lizzie Renihan gave the best performance of the three.

Does anyone know if the 30 degree cycle on my dishwasher is any good?

Correction: the ridiculously hot and fine Korean guy from Lost.

I gave up watching Lost about midway through season 3. It had just got silly by that point, so I kissed goodbye to the hot hot men (Jin and Sawyer basically) and moved on with my life. I might watch it all from the start on DVD once it's DEFINITELY finished, but not before then.
