The original London cast performs prior to the West End opening on the Children in Need telecast. Laura Michelle Kelly is Mary and Gavin Lee is Bert. Plus, they even offer a chance for us to learn how to spell it.
From Peter Filichia’s Diary on 10.10.08:
Kevin Daly did Encores! a favor by casting Darling of the Day for them. Now all that Encores! has to do is do the show. Daly wisely chose David Hyde Pierce as Priam Farll, Victoria Clark as Alice Challice, Judy Kaye as Lady Vale, and Gavin Lee as Alfie. I’m interested; aren’t you? Hope the powers-that-be at City Center are listening.
