Re: the London production - During her time as alternate Marti Webb was billed as "Special Guest Appearance of Marti Webb as Eva at certain performances" - whereas Susannah Fellows and all of Webb's successors were billed as "xx who plays Eva at certain performances". As noted they were not part of the ensemble, nor was it stated at which performances they were scheduled to appear (though the usual was Thursday evening and Saturday matinee). In almost all cases the alternate took over as 'lead' Eva at the next cast change. The exception being Siobhan McCarthy who had played the Mistress in the original cast and returned to the show to take over as the fourth (I think) principal Eva without ever having served as alternate.
