Simon Thomas to succeed Richard Fleeshman in Legally Blonde
Anyone who wants to see Richard Fleeshman in the West End musical Legally Blonde may wish to book theatre tickets quickly.
It has been announced that the former Coronation Street actor will leave the role of Warner Huntington III next month, with Simon Thomas to step into his designer shoes on October 25th 2010.
This is the same date when Denise Van Outen, Siobhan Dillon and Carley Stenson will also join the show's cast at the Savoy Theatre.
Thomas may be recognisable to theatre fans thanks to his stint in Into The Woods this summer, while Stenson has played Steph Dean in Hollyoaks for ten years.
Meanwhile, Sheridan Smith is to continue playing Elle Woods until next year after recently extending her contract.
Legally Blonde has become a smash hit since it first opened in the West End, with both fans and critics delighted by its sunny outlook and uplifting songs.
