"Adam Cooper in musical"
 
   I've heard Adam would star in "On Your Toes". He will also be in charge of choreography for the musical. It will start in March 2002 in London and tour within the UK. Does anyone give us more details ?

   Looks like the tour will start at the Haymarket Theatre in Leicester but that's all I know. Would be good to have tour details. Maybe it's early days...

   This would be a wonderful musical for Adam to work in. It includes the ballet Slaughter on Tenth Avenue with choreography by Balanchine.

Casting thoughts - the bad guy Russian - Irek of course!

Any other ideas?

The big question, can Adam and Irek sing?

   Is this really true? Balanchine HAS to be some act to follow. Storyline and a list of characters are to be found on http://www.nodanw.com/shows_o/on_your_toes_htm.

This is a guessing game and a bit of fun - the cast members have to be able to act,sing & dance, so...apart from Adam as Junior, and Irek (?singing ability) as the male Russian ballet star, who do you think will star in the other roles. I give you for beginners:-

Judi Dench as Peggy Porterfield
Robert Parker as the younger Junior
Frankie: the ubiquitous Ruthie Henshall?
Vera Baronova, a prototype prima ballerina: ??
Alexandrovitch the Russian autocrat: Albert Finney
etc., etc...

Answers please on a postcard.

   Thank you, Tomoko for starting this thread. I found a little more information about this musical. According the information from "1936 Musical Revamped" at http://uk.music.yahoo.com/010806/191/c0i67.html, The preview is scheduled for April 26 with the season running from April 30 to May 25 at Haymarket Theatre in Leicester. I am NOT going to miss this on.

   oh yes, Robert Parker as the younger junior.

I wonder if the ballerina role is a Russian?

Hey how come no one else is playing this game!?

   The last time On Your Toes was revived in London, the ballerina was played by Makarova - a hard act to follow!
