My other Strat is a vampire..

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me... I went and saw BOOHTM again last night and got to see the understudy Strat perform.

He plays the role really differently! I said to my partner during intermission - not sure about this Strat, he's a bit sparkly vampire. And he said - not sure about sparkly, he was thinking Angel early series Buffy. And I agreed - Yes! Especially when he turns up in her bedroom suddenly. (Though he wasn't invited...)

I didn't think he was as good as Andrew Polec at singing, and he didn't have that charismatic insane natural leader thing going on, but it was really interesting to see how differently the role was played.

The girl playing Raven was much, much better though. She really shone, I thought she did loads better than on opening night. Also, she seemed to play it much darker. She was really good.

Falco & Sloane were as good as before. Which is spot on. :) Falco's accent didn't slip at all this time.

There was a different Jagwire too - this time he's white and kind of looks like the guy who plays Hawkeye in Marvel films :) He didn't seem to idolise Zahara as much as the other Jagwire, didn't stand out as much.

Zahara - still really good but wasn't as omg fantastic as last week.

You really do see a lot more sitting near the front. Like the giant neon FALCO sign on his tower in the opening scene, and bats flying overhead at the end.

The Bad For Good poster in Raven's room was in a different place too, so it was visible at the start. It was on the wall next to her bed. The poster you see later on, where the Bad For Good poster was last week, became a STRAT poster.

The singing and dancing from the lost seemed better last week. They didn't seem as in sync with each other this time.

Those are all the differences I can think of right now. It's like, 5am and I'm in a hotel room, unable to sleep. :)
