Very excited to hear your review when it happens :D

I'm actually struggling to recognise Lee in photos and that was never a problem before!

So basically this is a bit late since something was preventing me from logging in for a good week or so, but the other week I was looking through my program collection(which is not very impressive, and suddenly realised Tom Edden had been in Oliver as well as Emilie Fleming when I saw it, not sure how I missed that!! And there was me remembering every new cast member's name except him...
In fact I seem to remember reading through the credits of all the new people and specifically noticing that he had played Fagin in Oliver! at some point, but somehow COMPLETELY missed the 'Crucible Theatre, Sheffield' part... :oops:

Now he was definitely awesome as Fagin(see I do remember some things...), and as I said I liked what I saw in west end live, so so far I'm pretty optimistic about him :)

Acaila wrote:I think he is still the pimp. And I actually saw Dayle Hodge as Parnasse last time I was there, who was Prouvaire in the cast before that, so it's not too bizarre, but I think he is far more a Bahorel than a Jehan. I mean, he's a big strapping Glaswegian!

New Thenardier is Tom Edden.

And Christian Edwards, the new R seems pretty darn good, and looks quite right in the part, so he's winning me over.


I didn't mean it was bizarre, exactly, I just find a lot of things amusing for no valid reason whatsoever, pretty much :P

Little thing I've been wondering about for ages- how does one go about pronouncing Rob Houchen's surname? :) :roll:

mmmm, that is a very good question. Is it Hutchen or Houchen (like couch)? Not too sure.

I NOW KNOW THE ANSWER TO MY OWN QUESTION. :mrgreen:

it's Houchen as in couch, slouch, ouch etc. :)

Carrie did a video recently where she basically vlogged throughout her whole day and met random people and stuff, it was quite entertaining really :lol: and she said Rob's name at some point in there...
