She's mine! No, she's mine!!!

Connie Fisher (c) PA

This is Connie Fisher, the winner of How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria and now the lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Sound of Music.

But where is she from?

  • BBC Wales calls her “Pembrokeshire’s Connie”.
  • The Wilts and Glos Standard claim her to be from the Cotswolds.
  • According to Wikipedia she was born in Belfast.
  • She spent part of her childhood in Dorset.
  • And she now lives in London!

So would any other local newspapers, TV or radio programmes like to claim her as theirs? If so, please form an orderly queue at the Stage Door…

Andrew Lloyd–Webber in hypocrite shocker!

Andrew Lloyd–Webber (creator of the hit musicals) said yesterday:

Stage schools tend to turn out performers with a certain patina. There is a certain sameness. You can almost tell which school they have come from.

Isn’t that a little rich from the man whose musicals all sound identical and can be spotted a mile away for their schmaltz? If anyone’s to blame for musical performers sounding the same, it’s Webber himself.
