2004 Guest Stars
*Additional Guest Stars to be announced
The guest stars will probably perform in select cities. I am so excitied!!! I haven't seen the show since 98 - I just couldn't bring myself to see it the past few years (because of a certain cast member), although I missed both Scott's and Kristi's last years with the show. I hope that Steven Cousins will be another guest star!! And I can't wait to see what Christopher Dean will do for the show!!!

Gosh, I don't know, Herm. Yuka Sato is one of my all time favorites. Alexei has charisma. Todd is very popular with American audiences.
But it looks like they are still banking on the four pairs teams to sell the show.
Back in the day -- with Scott, Kristi and Kurt -- those names alone guarenteed an audience. Now I think the burden will be on the choreographers to come up with an ensemble show that packs 'em in.
BTW, Kurt and Kristi are still scheduled to appear as "special guest stars" in certain cities--their names just haven't been added to the official SOI site yet for whatever reason. It'll be interesting to see which guest stars will appear in which cities...and how (or if) they might be integrated into this year's group numbers.

I'm very curious! Who? You've missed alot of great shows!
Great skaters, but I'm not particularly thrilled with the lineup. I think SOI is banking everything on the pairs teams, and I think they're going to have another season of low ticket sales. SOI played to small audiences last year, and I have to wonder if they can stay afloat, financially, if people stay away in droves as they did last season.
Katarina Witt was one of the SOI headliners last season. She wrote in her website that she was grateful to SOI for not cancelling any of the shows, despite the low ticket sales.

I thought the show was great last year. I might be in the minority but the show was so entertaining for me that I saw it twice last year! That is not a bad core cast at all IMO and I look foward to seeing what SOI has in store for us this year. The guest stars will be interesting this year to see how it affects the show overall. I trust Christopher Dean though and I think he will do a fabulous job. Bring on the tour! :D
Yuka! Yuka! Yuka! Yesssss!
ITA with you. I thoroughly enjoyed the show last year with the exception of the exclusion of Ilia Kulik and inclusion of the "Elvis & Marilyn" number. Love B&S, just not that program. I'm hoping Ilia will be one of the "Guest stars to be announced" who ends up doing the whole tour
Anyway, I'll be curious to see what Christopher Dean does with the show.
