We Will Rock You (Dominion): Richard Woodford.
It's great to see quite a few of this bunch are still knocking around. I bet there are tons of newer performers that I've never heard of, though, not having kept up with things so well for a few years now. Finding out who they are takes some trawling through each show's website to read all their bios and still leaves them out of context as I don't know the rest of the cast list for which production they were in and when.
Could anyone point me in the direction of more recent cast lists? Since London closed, I kept up with the UK tour, but now I'm really behind.
Btw, reading the bios on these sites brings up some amusing facts - Darren Carnall played Rumpleteaser in Cyprus, apparently!
And has anyone else spotted the UK Tour's lovely Rum Tum Tugger Stuart Ramsey in the Lucozade advert lately? The one where he's driving along, you know the one. Look out for him.
