Blue For a Boy
On the pre – London tour Jasmine Dee played the part of Caprice and she later took over the role in London from Aud Johansen. Likewise Guy Fane played the part of Hercule Bompard but was replaced by Charles Stone in London.
The part of Henri, played by John Trayne, seems to have disappeared by the time the show reached London.
