A way too limited tour, in my estimation. Aussie tour producers — get onto getting this local, will you? Or failing that, anybody got a spare plane ticket to the UK they don't need for mid-year?
Sadly, Peter Jones, the voice of the book in the original radio series (although these live shows will be adaptations of the books, to fit the material in) is no longer with us. Still, his replacements — which include Terry Jones and Neil Gaiman — ought to be able to do a decent job.
