    So do we all just go to see musicals or do we listen to them too?

    All the time, especially the older musicals.

    16 of my Top 25 are songs from musicals, mainly Sondheim. I’m gonna try and get a ticket for Follies in a couple of weeks.

    Sondheim wrote some great music. Even Madonna's More and Sooner Or Later are among my favorite Madonna songs ever.

    I thought Andrew Lloyd Webber was better than Sondheim for the longest time, but overall Sondheim has a much stronger quality of work.

    I’m desperate for a London revival of Sunday In The Park with George.

    I was hoping the Jake Gyllenhall rendition would transfer to the West End. I wouldn’t be against a new version of Into The Woods. I rewatched the original broadway production (available on YouTube) and simply find Joanna Gleason utterly divine.

    I was gutted Jake never brought it over. My bank balance isn’t. Same with Hello Dolly and Bette Midler. Rumour was it was happening... and then it wasn’t. Which is just as well as Madge is due to announce a tour soon.

    I try try not to listen to cast recordings until I’ve seen a show but occasionally I’ve relented and gone in search of something new. Really enjoying the new London Company cast recording and Follies from the National Theatre. Also keep forgetting Come From Away is now in town... that cast album (I caved) was one of my most played last year - such a wonderful story.

    Saw Only Fools & Horses yesterday. Front row. Del tried to sell me an Eiffel Tower but thought it was Arc De Triomphe

    Had to use the facilities mid performance and hand on heart, believe one of the theatre ghosts was in there with me. Someone was grunting and shuffling... and it weren’t me.

    And delighted Dame Maggie Smith has announced a return to the London stage. Just take my money before Madonna gets it all.

    If you aren’t a regular theatre goer and are a fan of the show, you should enjoy it. I don’t mean to be snobbish - and I’m a huge fan of the show - but don’t bother if you’re looking for a decent musical.

    That said, I enjoyed it. The songs are good for what they are, the cast is incredible and it’s basically a greatest hits of the show - most of the popular scenes are in it. Uncle Albert, the van appearing and the bar fall get huge cheers.

    It’ll do well for about a year then survive a second say. But it will live forever on tour.
