First of all I want to say how great it is to have FOUR blog reviews of Rachel's triumphant opening night. And there's another one below from 'The Stage', with major praise for our girl.
I've now heard from everyone who was there with the Team Tucker group and all had a brilliant night.
Several of us discussed how great it would be if we knew in advance when Rachel will be playing the main female role of Scaramouche. Well we didn't have to wait too long, as I've been informed that this will happen from the 3rd to the 15th November.
If you're not totally familiar with the show, Rachel's main part as the Meat character involves being on stage quite a lot, but her two main songs are the duet with Britney 'I Want It All' and of course the show-stopping solo; 'No-one But You (Only The Good Die Young)'. As Scaramouche, Rachel will be on stage for roughly two thirds of the show, with a lot more dialogue and a lot more vocal activity.
This will be a superb chance to see her in this highly demanding role and is most definitely worth making another journey for.
So if you were one of the lucky ones attending opening night, or you have a ticket for a show beyond November or you don't have a ticket at all, you're more than welcome to join us on the night.
At this point, we're open to suggestions for a suitable date. I'm hoping to bring the family so would prefer a Friday or Saturday night for school purposes, but we're throwing it entirely open to you. You can email either me or Andy or simply leave a comment on this post. Just tell us which night you'd prefer and we'll work something out. I would suggest leaving our final decision for about a week until we've got everyone's input.
Please note that you DON'T have to be a Team Tucker member for this. Buckley Brigadiers, Larkabouts and those of no affiliation are all more than welcome.
I'd also like to salute the Buckley Brigadiers who turned up on Monday night to enjoy the show. Although your idol wasn't able to attend, I know you were all hugely impressed with Rachel's performance. Also a special mention for three ladies from that select group whom I met up with for a pre-theatre meal on Monday. Thank you so much for your company -- it made a wonderful day even more special.
