A workshop of "Billy" took place in early October, apparently with a view to a possible regional tour / West End production.

The cast was:

Lee Mead - Billy Fisher
Denise Welch - Mrs Fisher
Tim Healey - Mr. Fisher
Stephen Matthews - Stamp
Stephen Tate - Shadrack
Sarah Lark - Rita
Georgina Rich - Liz
Kathryn Rooney - Barbara

Directed by Paul Kerryson
Produced by Kenny Wax

Don Black and the writers were apparently in attendance.

Paul Kerryson is the artistic director of the new Leicester Curve Theatre and does do musicals. Kenny Wax is a general manager/producer for a number of shows, usually in collaboration with other, bigger production companies.

If it happens, they might use Leicester as the out-of-town try-out and see how it goes down, then tour it if they think it'll work.
