Just seen that Les Mis is touring for the first time in a decade or so. Coming to the Hippodrome so I'm tempted to see if anyone else wants to go. It's got some good songs, but I'm not the biggest fan of a lot of the second act, so I can't justify going all the way to London to watch it.

Killian Donnelly is playing Jean Valjean in the tour after doing it in London, so I'm expecting good things. He was good in Kinky Boots, too.

Bought tickets for Kinky Boots earlier. £56 each. Crazy money! I'm sure I didn't pay that much for front-of-the-circle tickets in London!

Off to London in the morning to see La Boheme again at the Opera House.

Saw Legally Blonde at the weekend, it was OK, a bit forgettable but the performances were all very good so I cant complain too much.

Saw Mischief Movie Night from the Mischief Company (Play that goes wrong etc)

Pretty good - but still it's improve so not the tight comedy of their other stuff. Also short (over by the interval). The extract from new show after was much much better.

Saw Hamilton last night and loved it! Well worth the 8 month wait since I got tickets.

Listened to quite a few of the songs before seeing it, but it is so much better live and on stage. I think Burr and the King were my favourite characters.

My new favourite musical! Book of Mormon is still funniest though...

At the weekend I went to a local production of Wizard of Oz and it was very good indeed. We had front row seats, which was a new experience for me and I have to say it was very nice. It really feels like the show is being put on just for you and being so close means you can see all the little details. I was also impressed with the production values, everything from the costumes and coreography to the use of pyrotechnics were spot on. My one knock against it is that while the the lead was a very good actor she didnt really feel like Dorothy to me but then Im comparing her to Judy Garland so its probably an unfair comparison. Overall very good show and Ill definitely keep an eye out for more productions there.

Got free tickets for Titanic - The Musical for Sunday. Anybody seen it? I've read good things, and the person who works in the industry who got us the tickets said it's her favourite musical she's seen in a long time.

I'm not a huge musical fan, but a free tickets a free ticket.

Oh, I saw that recently too. The one I saw was actually a pretty neatly told plot and despite being absurd moved forward in a ridiculously natural way for an improve. I thought it was really funny too. I was actually tempted to see it again the next night, it was that good. I wonder if that was a fluke though.
