so far, want to say something?

  1. Frances Poole says:

    Are there any plans for Phantom to come to Birmingham? If not, any where nearer to the midlands.

  2. kathy lord says:

    I live in the midlands as well would love to see a show in our area

  3. phil h says:

    I hope you are coming to Norwich Theater.

  4. Nancy Boardley Lowestoft Suffolk says:

    What a pity East Anglia is seldom included in National Tours!

  5. sarah says:

    a little bit disapointed that Jon Owen Jones is not goin to be at the wales millennium centre in december. Seein as he is welsh & by far the best Phantom, i would have thought he would definately be doing this one. Also very disapointed that Miss Katy Treharne will not be at the WMC, as she is also welsh with such an amazing voice & together with Jon Owen Jones WHAT A DUO. Saw them both in London & at the Eisteddfod & i feel they compliment each other & are perfect together. Please have a think about this as i know a few people will be disapointed they won’t be there. thanks
