                Do - itís amazing. We were bang in the middle of the front row. That OíHara woman makes singing look so freaking easy, as if itís not even a challenge.

                    Have fun

                    Iím off to see Book of Mormon this afternoon. I just hope the mother appreciates it... sheís not a God fearing woman thankfully

                      I feel like people would either love Book of Mormon or just not appreciate it in the slightest.

                        Wow. That was one of the best musicals Iíve ever seen, I havenít even seen the film so had no idea what to expect. The whole cast were fantastic, especially OíHara and Watanabe as the leads, so funny and charming. Shout out to my girl Naoko whom I simply love it anything but I didnít realise she could sing that well until now. Iíd only ever seen her in clips from Avenue Q and this was much more demanding.

                          I canít find a single fault with it. It will never be my favourite musical but I appreciate the chance to see some amazing performers making the effort to come to the UK, to perform such a classic in such an historic venue.

                          But I love being so close the actors... you feel right up in amongst it all. Glad to have ticked another R&H musical off the list though

                            I agree, but I love it. Thankfully so did the Mother. But then some bright sod made her remember we were around the corner from Oxford Street so we ended up handbag shopping after... ah well, hasa diga eebowai.

                              It felt weird that we were so close to each other this afternoon. I wouldíve love to have met your Mum. Gald she enjoyed BoM.

                                I know, you were quite literally only around the corner (and up the street a bit). I did see people coming away from the Palladium with programmes and thought anyone of them could have been you

                                  Anyway, these have been my only trips to the theatre this year and it has been nice to get back into it. Iím desperate to see a really good play now.

                                    I agree. I just love musicals so much that I find it odd to go to a theatre and not hear singing. My Mum went to the Orlando Bloom one and said it was brilliant, plus you get to see him naked so that's a bonus.

                                      Iíd like to see the Orlando one, but weíve all seen him naked so itís not a huge draw for me. Iíve exhausted myself with Harry Potter to the point I need a lengthy break from that too.

                                      I hear talk Hello Dolly is coming to the Palladium next year so I should probably just save for that as Iíd quite happily pay big for that - Iím gagging to see it, especially if Bette can be tempted back. Iíd like to see it with Bernadette Peters too, but Iíll wait for discounts then

                                          I saw Thriller yesterday. Not a massive MJ fan but I enjoyed it, it was more of a tribute concert than anything else. I liked that they had some Jackson 5 stuff in there.

                                            Never seen it. It was supposed to be closed - announced and everything - then he died and itís been going strong ever since. I just think itís a shame that it takes up a west end theatre, when so many better things could be there.

                                            Iím off to see Captain Poldark in his play next weekend and Jeremy Jordan (Smash/Supergirl/Broadway) in concert too. Love him

                                              Oh and I bought my Sally Field ticket. Okay so not for her play, but sheís ĎIn conversationí to promote her biography. Why wait until 2019 to see her?

                                                I saw Company yesterday and itís INSANELY brilliant. One of the best casts Iíve seen in a musical. Patti LuPone was amazing but has a fight on her hands as she is already being (surprisingly) upstaged by Jonathan Bailey.

                                                      Seen it three times now and itís such a fun show. I think the film adaptation is far superior though - the sets and location really add a lot to it all. But the story is just genius. Shame about Mamma Mia 2

                                                          I still need to see Company but, as I work in theatre, Iím rarely able to get the right time off to see it.
