Here's a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today.

West End's Made in Dagenham Completes Casting
Isla Blair (The History Boys, TV’s House of Cards) and David Cardy (Ghost Stories) will join the West End cast of Made in Dagenham, as Connie and Monty, respectively. The musical stage adaptation of the hit British film, starring Gemma Arterton, will officially open at London’s Adelphi Theatre on November 5.

Altar Boyz Crosses the Pond
Good God! Off-Broadway hit Altar Boyz is crossing the pond. The award-winning musical comedy will receive its U.K. premiere at London's Greenwich Theatre on October 3 and will play through October 18. Directed by Steven Dexter, casting will be announced later.

Donna Murphy Will Appear in Resurrection
Two-time Tony winner Donna Murphy (The King and I, Passion) has won a big recurring role on the ABC drama Resurrection. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress will play an enigmatic government agent.

Poster Revealed for Hamlet, Starring Benedict Cumberbatch
We were most excited to wake up to the news that the poster had been revealed for the upcoming London production of Hamlet, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. However, the image, below, is a puzzle worthy of Sherlock Holmes. For it’s not of the British stage and screen star. It’s of a small child. Back to gazing at these totally necessary mashups of Cumberbatch and Hamlet. Helmed by Lyndsey Turner, Shakespeare’s classic will play a limited engagement (naturally) at the Barbican Theatre, August 5, 2015 through October 31. Opening night is set for August 25. Further casting news (and photos, presumably) will be released later.
