Wendy Mae Brown in Ghost Tour

For me one of the stand out performances in the production of Kiss Me Kate which closes at the Old Vic on 2nd March is Wendy Mae Brown with her belting voice playing Hattie.

And now is seems the cliche "what's in a name" has come true because she is going to play Oda Mae Brown in the Tour of Ghost the Musical which kicks off in April at Cardiff Millennium Centre.   This is the larger than life part of the medium originally made famous by Whoopi Goldberg in the movie and played superbly by Sharon D Clarke in London's West End.

Wendy Mae Brown theatre credits include Stepping Out, Come Dancing,  King Cotton, Porgy and Bess,  Barnum, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Rent,The Wizard of Oz and Mamma Mia!

You're right. No idea where I got February Milton Keynes from! Duly amended. Much appreciated.

And it starts in 2013, not 2014! Sorry to be picky!

I'm just glad one of us is on the ball. Be as picky as you like! Thanks again.

I hardly dare do this, but promise it's the last comment, Millennium is spelt wrong! I'm going now I promise.
