He can sing. He also has an offer on the table to play Alfred in a reading of the English translation for Tanz der Vampire.

Noooooooooooooooooo! (Melodrama!)

I hate his acting. I want someone different!

That said, if it is a proper version that matches the German one, then that great nonetheless.

Yes, Yakko, they are. It's going to be a bit complicated with Polanski cooling his heels in jail at the mo, but the new translation (you have it, I think?) is getting a reading, and there's an offer on the table for Radcliffe. Jim Steinman was apparently psyched that Radcliffe wanted to be involved.

Having seen the new translation myself, all I can say is that it's very similar in form, meaning, and spirit to the German stage hit, and plays brilliantly in English, while also having its own unique sense of poetry, language, etc., geared to the sensibilities of an English-speaking audience. For those especially concerned fans of the German version, only small changes to correct what were agreed to be flaws in the show's structure were made. There is some pruning and splicing of scenes, and a minor reassignment of one song. Also, at points (one example being "Total Eclipse of the Heart"), Steinman's original pre-Tanz lyrics appear with only small modifications made for it to fit the plot.

Well as Long Crapford stays away from this version I'll be okay with and I still have it!

I assume they've stuck with stuff like "Hear a voice" instead of "Fall apart" and stuff like that.
