    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

    Mamma Mia is a cheesily enjoyable show, cheap and cheerful.

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

    Oh, which one? Do you get to watch the production? You must see Company, itís up there as possibly the best since Glenn did her Norma Desmond revival.

    I work at the Victoria Palace and, yes, Iíve now seen Hamilton countless times. The first act 14 and the second act 20, still love it though.

    Thatís not a bad show to work on, in terms of repetition. Every time I listen to the cast recording I find something new I hadnít noticed before. Not like having to work through something like Mamma Mia 50 times

    I saw it opening week (2nd preview I think) but as much as Iíd love to see it again, Iím not paying those prices as itís not worth the money and more than my £30ish budget is per show. Although I broke that rule recently - Iíve paid £50 to go see Only Fools and Horses next Feb

    Iím looking forward to it as first time I went in blind (knew nothing and hadnít heard it) and now I know the broadway cast recording inside out itíll be a whole other ball game.

    Iím off to see Only Fools & Horses: The Musical this weekend which Iím very excited about! Iím desperate to see Company again before it closes and really want to see Waitress.

    In other news, I saw Chita Rivera in concert yesterday. FABULOUS doesnít even cover it - 86 years old and shimmying for the gay boys like a trooper

    Such a joy to hear the woman who originated such iconic roles in West Side a Story and Chicago perform her songs from said shows live.
