Thanks to all for your remarks/info: if Darius doesn't know whether he is doing the tour, does this mean he is still waiting to be 'asked' & would be willing if so? Has the cast not been announced yet? Dissappointing news for me, as so difficult to arrange London. Please let me know when the tour cast is announced. Good that Megham showed that positive good review from british theatre. Darius of course, was 'born to be the 'lead' in whatever he does! By the way, what does it mean when one of you says. 'nice if we could see it in G.B.?! Good to hear the record is fine, but think i'd like to see show 1st, so please keep me updated abt tour cast etc. So good to hear all your comments/updates. Thanks.

He has been asked and he isn't doing it. I'd like to know what his next steps are - I'd really like a new album. I'd like his next project to be somewhere we can see it - GB not just abroad

Darius isn't actually involved in the action. Him co-producing it wont give us anything more visible that any other co-producer is. I'm looking forward to the next time he acts or sings more than that - although I know he likes being involved in this kind of thing, it doesn't much apeal to me as something that would make me watch it

I admit that I'm disappointed that Darius isn't doing a few legs of the tour, enough for at least a geographical spread for his fans who can't travel to London.

At least we've got the CD and I'm still hopeful the show might be filmed before it closes in the West End.

Darius will have spent almost a year in what seems to be a close, exuberant and talented company, playing yet another iconic role which he couldn't refuse. He's played Nick opposite three leading ladies - Sheridan, Natasha and Claire Rickard. He's made his mark
There isn't much opportunity to develop Nick any more. It's such an underwritten role. If there was, maybe another year on tour would be well spent. On balance, the end of the Savoy run is probably the right time to pass the baton or in this case, the ruffled shirt, on.

Two things have always motivated Darius - new challenges and working with some of the best people in the business.

In addition, he's always been keen to learn the technical aspects as well as the creative ones, so I can understand the attraction of film production for him.

Re Funny Girl London Cast recording, I think it showcases all of the cast and the show really well.

I still can''t get into Rat-a-tat -tat. The routine seemed interminable in the show. I skip that track every time.

I like how they've included some lines (and Joel's fabulous tap dancing)... the contrast between D's "It's my neck!" and the onstage "What Do Happy People Do?" highlights the gulf between Fanny's life on and off stage.

I like all of Sheridan's songs. Though I do wonder why The Music That Makes Me Dance is so quick.

Who Are You Now is my favourite track but I often catch myself humming or singing snatches of nearly all the songs from the show.

Thanks BT - I've shared it with Archive and News. The whole cast was brilliant again yesterday. I hope Darius' back repairs soon - not that you'd notice anything wrong with it

Poor Darius. I just hope he's sensible and doesn't risk more serious damage by carrying on regardless.

Did I post this review before?

I don't think you did but it sounds like someone who doesn't want to like something and has already made up their mind.

Ah yes...Last week Meg ham. I just couldn'the get down from Scotland to see it,as my daughter has been working long hrs and not had a window to accompany me and stay over weekend in London. However,she said "don't worry mum". "When he comes to Scotland, we can go to see him in Edinburgh &Glasgow "! But your news that he wasn' doing the tour,has now put paid to that! If you hear ,Meg ham of any other events,he will be singing at,preferably in Scotland, I would appreciate it if you would let me know,or do you think he will be 'off' after the show to do his producing stint, matey lasting a long time;in which case at my age, I might be lucky to ever see him in concert again.ha! Do wish his focus was on the singing,purely for selfish reasons of course. Apart from that,I honestly believe,that to be successful you must be totally focused on what you excellent at,but Darius has a different perspective &who knows, matey that will work for him and I wish him every success in all his many ventures. One thing'so for sure.He was born to be a star and with all that talent I hope heo entertain us fomany years to come.

He is still talking about a new album but it'll have to fit in his role as producer. It's a shame you missed 'Funny Girl' it was very good.

Hi Megham, thanks for commiserations. Yes, am so dissappointed I couldn't get down to London to see DARIUS perform &lulled myself into a false s.o.so thinking he would be doing some of the tour and come up to Scotland. It's been nice though to get your updates and information which is really appreciate, and long may it continue. Would be great if Darius could bring us a new album,buthe since he is 'all over the place',I won't hold my breath. Hope he has a good experience producing.yet another string to his bow,and no doubt we will hear how it all goes. Wonder if it's here or in the states!

Thanks, megham.

I feel gutted for fans who won't get a chance to see Darius in Funny Girl. I really thought they'd have filmed it for a Dvd/Bluray for Christmas.

Does anyone know anything about Darius's planned projects? Will he have to be mainly in the USA?

I can't see Darius ever giving up live performances.
He has cemented his reputation as a West End leading man. I bet there will be another role which he won't be able to refuse

Right now, though, he's got his foot in the production door and it must be really challenging and exciting for him. I wish him all the very best.

The show CDs are great but it's never too late for the long awaited Darius album.

We'll have to wait and see. Darius is looking forward to the future which, he feels, must have music in it

Unfortunately I can't remember what my BBC ID is . I don't know if the site will let me re-register. I'll try later on.
