As a full time professional theatre worker I can tell you that it is inconceivable that a director at West End level would not be fully involved in any re-casting and rehearsing of any principal takeovers. Especially as this will only be the second cast. Things tend to become looser as the run lengthens. I doubt that Nunn or Caird have much to do with casting on Les Mis these days. And, from what I've heard, more's the pity...
Oh, I didn't know that! Thanks.
Well, hopefully Rufus Norris will be able to fire her and make them hire a higher quality actress...I wish.
Would he typically get any approval over who is cast, considering its his production and he is going to be involved with the second cast?
He used to call me — Blue Roses.
