Congratulations to my friend John Thompson for getting the role of ‘Songman’ in the Australian stage production of War Horse. It’s a wonderful opportunity for such a talented singer and musician. He’ll be in the production for at least a year, possibly longer, as it moves to three major cities and then (possibly) to the Far East.
However it does mean that Cloudstreet’s touring is currently on hold, which is our loss. John’s partner, Nicole Murray, will be keeping up with her music by leading a choir and also taking tiome out to concentrate on her (very fine) art.
I wish them both the best of luck for the changes and opportunities ahead.
