btw she didn't have a 'tour'..they were just like promotional appearances. everyone who gets voted out of the x factor does them during the couple of weeks after they're voted out and she was at the final. her appearance in birmigham wasn't til the early hours of the morning although i'm not 100% sure she appeared cos she was on the xtra factor til nearly midnight. JLS and Eoghan are appearing at the same places Diana did next week.

 

i admit i thought alexandra was the best on the night, she probably will become a big star now but i don't think you would see me buying her records.

 

apparently simon cowell has signed Eoghan, JLS and Diana as well though :D

Alex deserved to win!! How people can complain that a talent like Alexandra won really leaves me lost for words tbh!! some people obviously don't know an amazing voice/talent when it slaps them in the face!

 

Even Beyonce has vowed to make Alex a global superstar!! She thought she was phenominal!!!

who cares if he's too defensive? :lol: he's a big fan. let him be.

 

anyway - alex needs to go. i thought jls were better on the night and i don't even like them. their version of hallelujah was better, i feel. hers was too fancy and gospel sounding when it was a really simple song originally. it doesn't feel right.

wayne, you're so defensive :lol:

well what do you expect when Lahni always comes on and writes nasty things about diana. i'm a huge fan and when someone says bad things about someone i love it's obvious i'm going to become defensive. i don't like alexandra but you don't hear me saying nasty things about her so i don't know why you always need to do that. if you don't like her that's fine but you don't need to be such a bitch.

i understand that but it's still not nice for me to read those things when i'm a huge diana fan.

i know i can get a bit too defensive sometimes but that's who i am, i'm very sensitive.

you're entitled to your opinions though, i suppose i just have to learn to ignore the bad stuff that's written about her.

Following press speculation we are delighted to confirm that Diana Vickers is to star in the first major West End

revival of Jim Cartwright’s multi award-winning play The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.

 

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is coming back to the West End in an exciting new production to play a strictly

limited season at the Vaudeville theatre from Thursday 8 October. Press night is Tuesday 20 October at

7.00pm

 

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice premiered in 1992 at the Royal National Theatre and then transferred to the Aldwych theatre. It was nominated for six Olivier Awards, and the play won both The Evening Standard and Olivier awards for Best Comedy of the Year.

 

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is a savage black comedy-drama about painfully shy, diminutive Little Voice (LV), who lives alone in the north of England with her mother, Mari. Mari’s drunken, overbearing personality has driven LV into seclusion in her bedroom, where she listens to her late father’s records and has perfected faultless impersonations of the greatest divas, including Judy Garland and Dame Shirley Bassey. When Mari’s latest boyfriend, small-time working men’s club impresario Ray Say, overhears LV singing, he puts in place a tragic sequence of events as he pushes her towards stardom she doesn’t want and is literally terrified of.

 

Producer Nica Burns said today: ”There was no question of reviving this fabulous play in the West End until we had found our Little Voice. When Jim Cartwright, who originally wrote The Rise and Fall of Little Voice for Jane Horrocks, told me he had found the perfect girl - and then dragged me off to Wembley to see Diana Vickers perform as part of the “X Factor” tour, I thought he’d gone mad! But when I saw Diana I knew immediately he was right; she has a special quality.

When she finally agreed - after much persuasion - to come in and read for us, we found out that not only can she sing but she was an intuitive actress as well.”

 

Playwright Jim Cartwright said: “This young girl is a natural actress. The moment she read the part, it was magic. A frisson ran through the room. Diana Vickers is the real deal. She is Little Voice.”

 

Nica added: ”We are extremely grateful to Diana’s record company for allowing her a break from recording her debut album to take on this exciting role in the West End. I know it wasn’t part of her career plan after the “X Factor”, but we are delighted she agreed to do it - even if it meant wearing my knees out begging her!”

 

Diana Vickers, born in Burnley, Lancashire, the sort of town where the play is set, has been singing since the age of 11. Her talent came to light when she entered the “X Factor” in 2008 and her journey saw her survive nine weeks of live shows. Diana is taking short break from recording her debut album to take the role in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice. She recently signed a record deal to RCA records and her debut album is due for release early 2010.

 

Playwright Jim Cartwright was born in Farnworth, Lancashire. His plays are consistently performed around the world and have won numerous awards. They have been translated into over 27 languages. His first play, “Road”, opened at the Royal Court in 1986, and was subsequently revived that same year and again in 1987, before being taken on a nationwide tour. “Road” won the Samuel Beckett Award, Drama Magazine’s Best New Play Award, and was joint winner of The Plays And Players Award and The George Devine Award. In 1988, “Road” was produced by The Lincoln Centre, New York. “Road” is now considered a modern classic. Other works include: “Bed” (Royal National Theatre), “Two” (Octagon Theatre, Bolton, transferring to The Young Vic, winner of The Manchester Evening News Best New Play Award), “Eight Miles High” (Octagon Theatre, Bolton, nominated for the TMA best musical award. In 1997 a production of the play at the

Reykjavik City Theatre, Iceland, ran for a year, breaking box office records).

 

Director Terry Johnson has won nine British theatre awards including two Oliviers for Best Comedy, Playwright of the Year, Critics' Circle Theatre Awards for Best New Play, two Evening Standard Theatre Awards, two Writers' Guild Award for Best Play, the Meyer-Whitworth Award 1993 and the John Whiting Award 1991.

 

He has had many West End productions as director and/or writer including: “One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest”, “Hitchcock Blonde”, “Entertaining Mr Sloane”, “The Graduate”, “Dead Funny”, “Hysteria”, “Elton John's Glasses” and “The Memory of Water”. His award-winning production of “La Cage Aux Folles” is currently in the West End at the Playhouse and will open on Broadway in 2010.

 

Nica Burns is one of the UK’s leading play producers. Her productions have won four Evening Standard Awards: “Medea” starring Fiona Shaw directed by Deborah Warner won Best Actress and Best Director (Queens and Broadway), “Feelgood” by Alistair Beaton, a play Nica commissioned won Best Comedy (Garrick) and “Kiss Me Kate” won Best Musical (Victoria Palace). Other productions include Christian Slater in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, David Suchet in “Man and Boy”, “Who’s the Daddy?” by Toby Young and Lloyd Evans, David Schwimmer in “Some Girl(s)“ by Neil LaBute, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”, the reprise of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” starring Christian Slater and Alex Kingston, “Breakfast with Mugabe” by Fraser Grace directed by Anthony Sher, Fool for Love” by Sam Shepard starring Juliette Lewis, “A Moon for the Misbegotten” starring Kevin Spacey (Old Vic and Broadway), “Swimming with Sharks”

(Vaudeville) by Michael Lesslie and starring Christian Slater and Helen Baxendale, “Rain Man” with Josh Hartnett and Adam Godley and “Three Days of Rain” with James McAvoy.

 

Further casting and full creative team will be announced soon.
