After the shock horror of the godawful costume design for the show, this is a huge relief and very welcome news!
It's also more than a little bittersweet for me - this past Sunday, the 29th, I had tickets for the show in London, before my overseas trip got cancelled. I came -THIS- close to seeing this performance in the flesh (from really good seats, too) and it was snatched away. :( This makes me very, very sad I have to say. I would've loved to have been amongst the first to see this performance that is unanimously being reported as fantastic. Excuse me, I have for-reals tears in my eyes right now... boo hoo. :(
Anyway... I've gathered up a slew of news articles on the show that mention Poppy specifically... have a read and join me in seething jealousy and heartache of all the people who get to see this show!
