I don't honestly know whether I can imagine Russell in this role?

The little comedy bits, maybe, but the part where the barowner and his wife dance was such a bittersweet moment in the show.

Same. If he goes over the top with attempts at humour or flamboyance where the show doesn't call for it it just won't work.

He'll probably add his own touch to the role but I'm sure the director will tell him to rein it in a bit - at least that's what I hope

I would be interested to see him in the role but I'm not sure if I can get to any of the Westend dates.

Yes - Carlos is a role that calls for "Comedic Restraint". Teddy was very good at it. "Less is More" in the role - although MrsJJ and I are sure he will put his own take on it!!

You can vote for Midnight Tango in the Whats On Stage awards if you like ....

I have nominated them in the 'Best Regional Production' 'Best West End Show' and 'Best Choreographer' categories. I'm not sure what other ones they would be eligible for(?)

Honestly I say you should go for it.... It really is a great show and you won't be disappointed
I'm going! Bought tickets to take my mum for Christmas, then found out she is on holiday when it is on, so will have to take someone else instead!

Oooh oooh ooh they're coming to Leeds Grand ooh ooh ooh just after my birthday ooh ooh ooh!

*makes note to request tickets as birthday present*
I was just about to say I may go to the Manchester venue on my birthday when I saw your post. It'll be easier and nearer to go to Leeds just after my birthday - what date's yours? Mine's the 25th

First night tomorrow for the 2013 show. Anyone going to the Phoenix to see it in the next few weeks have a fab time

It would be good to read some new reviews if anyone going wants to write a little report afterwards

That's just consistent. It didn't say they were selling out every show.

(Since the show first began in April 2011, it has sold nearly 500,000 tickets throughout the UK and Ireland, meaning almost half a million people to date have been seduced by Vincent and Flavia’s hot and sensual show)

Looks like a few (or all) of the SCD tour people are going to see Midnight Tango on their night off on Monday. I've seen a few tweets about it and looks like James and Ola are going AGAIN

@The_JamesJordan: All of us are going to watch @vincentsimone and @FlaviaCacace on Monday's sold out show! Can't wait!!!
They did love it last year though, I remember James saying it was the best dance show he had ever seen

I like James and Ola they seem to have a genuine friendship with Vincent and Flavia.

I know James mouths off and can be a right idiot at times but he's generally seems supportive of his fellow pros
