I'm devastated to say that I don't think BRB are coming to the Lowry this summer. We have not had any advance notice of such a visit in any of the Friends bumph and there has been nothing included in the tour details in the programmes or on line.

 

Anyone wanting to see Madding Crowd (or the mixed programme) should book to see it in Birmingham.

 

PS - all three casts for B&B are great but this will be one of the last chances to see Robert Parker. From the talk he gave Friends in the Autumn, he will only be around at most till the end of the midscale tour.

Alison - yes midscale is after the Coli season. The Coli is the last week of the Spring tour with midscale being in May after Munich. Hobson's Choice is only being performed in Birmingham and Robert is truly wonderful in this role. I believe you can get really good rail fares from London to Birmingham using London Midland!

Thanks, Janet.

Unfortunately, Janet, it's not the rail fares so much as the ticket prices these days: I was going to go to see their Nutcracker until I realised that what I had thought were their usually fairly reasonable prices were the half-price children's option :(

  • 4 weeks later...

Recently BRB have only been publishing the casting about 10 days - 2 weeks before the performances so it could be anytime now. It could be that if arrangements with ROH have only just been agreed they have been unable to publish earlier. You can predict the sequence of casting with BRB!

Huh?! There are more seats available now for that matinee than when I booked about a week ago! (There *are* still a couple of handfuls of seats left for the Thursday matinee if anyone outside the Birmingham area is now keen to go). Oh well, I certainly won't mind if it's him.

 

And not entirely related (or unrelated, for that matter): why on earth does the Hippodrome's website show photo views from positions which are virtually symmetrical on left and right?! Surely the average theatregoer can mentally reverse the picture if they need to? It doesn't seem to be the most sensible way of doing things: the Royal Opera House, which of course has far more of a sightline problem, deliberately places them asymmetrically, which gives far better coverage.

Janet, Thank you so much for you to put the casting!

 

I am most dissapointed to know that Jamie Bond is not performing Will...

 

I have heard that several BRB dancers have been injured.

 

Jamie is one of them....

The Two Pigeons on 3rd of March evening is Robert Parker's last performance at Birmingham Hippodrome.

He will be performing in London on the 13th of March.

His last performance will be during the company's South-West Tour in May.

He will be performing Take Five by David Bintley.

 

Jamie Bond who couldn't perform Will Mossop in Hobson's Choice last week is planning his come back tomorrow evening.

He will be performing Daphnis in Daphnis & Chloë.

 

César Morales had an operation in January. He will be back on stage in early 2012\2013 season.

Natasha Oughtred is also injured at the moment.

Gaylene Cummerfield is off from personal reason.

Sounds like quite a nasty op for César, then, if it takes that long to recover from it. I wish both him and Natasha a full - and preferably speedy - recovery from what ails them, and all the best to Gaylene, too.
