And, in further casting news, Natalie Tena will apparently be playing Desdemona to Patrice Naiambana's Othello in the RSC's spring production. Tena's probably best known for playing Tonks in the last Harry Potter film, but she also turned up in Kneehigh's Nights at the Circus. Very interesting casting, certainly not playing to type (as the picture below partly demonstrates), so could be a fun collaboration!

You have to scroll down this link a bit to find it, but I'm extremely thrilled to learn that the wonderful Julian Bleach is going to be part of the cast for Cameron Mackintosh's new production of Oliver!as Mr. Sowerberry. Long-time readers will remember that he was my absolute favourite thing in the RSC's Complete Works Festival on account of his tremendous Ariel in The Tempest. Factor in Rowan Atkinson as Fagin and, despite my hatred for I'd Do Anything, I might actually have to go and see this!
