Whilst burning calories at the gym this morning and watching the breakfast time news I caught the end of an article about the musical A Woman in White.

Can anyone enlighten me? Is this a musical of the Wilkie Collins novel?

It's one of my favourite books and I just can't imagine it as a musical - I'm feeling rather disturbed by the whole idea of it.

Apparently it is, even more disturbing, the music's by Lloyd-Webber.

From the title I thought this thread might be about that Camberwell 'Character'.

... with Michael Crawford in prosthetics and fat suit as Count Fosco

Good grief indeed!

[Think the cast and creative team were spotted in Union Street a couple of months ago when rehearsals started at the Jerwood Space]

So you won't be going then?
By the way Birdie, did you get Ian Hunter's Strings Attached?

The prospect of Maria Friedman as Marian Halcombe is more interesting...

(Still remember her stunning Fosca (no relation?!) from the wreckage of the 1996 London production of Sondheim's Passion with Michael Ball(!!!) as the male lead.)

Have to say that I thought Maria Friedman was absolutely dire in PASSION.

She is much better in WOMAN IN WHITE. This time it's the material that's awful.

I suspect if you love the novel you'll be pretty miffed.
