More recently the show has been selected by Cameron Mackintosh and in 2014 Scott will be returning to the role in the West End at The Noel Coward Theatre.
“Just wanted to let you know that our Ladies Evening went very very well. We had a great turnout on the night, 114, and our venue was the 1882 Lounge at Burnley FC. Scott was great, and after meal and all the formalities, the Dance floor was never empty. Great mix of songs and music, and ideal with a stage and a dance floor right up to the stage. Scott had a great night, and did so well, and so many people commented on how good he sang, and the mix of music was so good. Pitched just right it seems at the age mix. As far as we are concerned we would recommend him without hesitation.”
