Will this lady soon be stepping out in London’s glittering London?
The show is confirmed. It starts on 25th June and lasts for 19 performances only and is called Kismet, as in that old musical directed by Vincente ‘father of Liza with a Z’ Minnelli. It’s on at the Collisseum, is an ENO production and will no doubt be faberlous. The only thing that’s not confirmed – and we are on our knees praying to the baby Jesus – is that Megan Mullally, sometimes also known as Karen Walker from Will & Grace, will appear.
The cast has been announced and there’s no mention of our heroine but the buzz on the streets is that ENO bigwigs are giving themselves piles trying to persuade the most gorgeous lady in the whole wide world to step out and clean up.
There is, however, bad news. If she does appear, it will be opposite Michael ‘Balls’ Ball. Note to ENO: he was rubbish in Passion (and that was Sondheim!), he’s fat and the only people who like him (ie nanas) will not be forking out your fancy Collisseum prices.
