That might be the reason, yes. It was a good accent, but it reminded a little too much of the Mortician for me to take it too seriously...

I thought the Welsh accept was a little ropey and less assured that Owen Fallowfield and I'm not entirely sure that Welsh is equal to the idea of the slightly different dialect of Spanish used by Agrado in the Film. I think Mark could have got away with making her authentically northern - surely that's regional enough?

But hey, it's a barn storming performance by Gatty-man. I'm just being picky really. :)

Went to see AAMM a few weeks ago, and thought it was very good. Mark was excellent, as was the rest of the cast (well, except for a few of the minor supporting actors). Would recommend anyone who hasn't seen it yet to go see it before it closes!

Also, found this little video the other day in which Mark shows his dressing room and talks briefly about his "waxed tits."

Oh, and just so you know, you can nominate Mark for best featured actor in a play at the Theatregoer's Choice Awards: ... php?sid=17

Have voted for Mark too. He definitely deserved to win, he's brilliant in the role. Also I voted for Steve in 'Best Take Over Performance' for 'The Drowsy Chaperone'. He was superb too as 'Man in chair', the narrator role, but it was far more than just that.
Have we missed the cakes?

Mark will probably be discussing this show when he appears on Richard & Judy's New Position at 8pm tonight. The show is on new tv channel Watch.

Catch it if you can!

Hi there Ekhomusic! :) Glad you could join us!

If you're planning on staying, why not pop over to the Newbies thread to say hello and tell us a little bit about yourself, here. The few guidelines we have for the forum can be found here.

Thanks for the Mark update too, BTW. :D
