Also from Bazs column. If they do do this I hope they do a better job than the recent Michael Rose production, and clearly not giving much faith in Sister Act!

'The Wizard Of Oz is being earmarked for the Palladium next year - and will Liza Minnelli really be a judge on the TV show that will be on the BBC to find a Dorothy? I hope not - her career deserves better than that. I'd better take a chill pill... I just can't abide these casting shows!'

Well it was going to be a Webber house and these TV shows like to take the big house to get the hype 1st advance in.

My first thought with Sister Act was maybe it's too big of a house, so possibly the producers are doing a clever thing or recouping with the initial first advance and then transfer to a smaller house. Stage Entertainment may transfer it in 2010 to the Shaftesbury as Hairspray may start to fall in house numbers by then, possibly.

A) I doubt the next BBC search (if they do one) will be for a female role..
B) I doubt the WOZ would sell that well... its found a niché of being performed at Xmas
C) I hope the Palladium isn't filled by the WOZ.. i'd rather Sister Act stayed than this come in.
