    Hello :)

    Who else is interested in musicals and theatre productions?

    I used to play the clarinet when I was in school, and I was never amazingly good, but I enjoyed it and I really regret giving it up when I was 18... :(

    I've seen a few shows. West Side Story, most recently and then last week I went to see Chicago, it was amazingly good... Really spot on! :)

    Rocky Horror in the new year!! SO excited for that..!

    Oh I've hit the jackpot in topics! Musical Theatre is my number one passion in life. I'll try not speak too much cos once I start, I won't stop. Been down to London five times this year, and got my new year break booked for January 3rd!

    One of the reasons I am trying to lose weight is to give me a bit more confidence and a push to apply to drama schools in London in the next couple of years.

    I've been in a good few too, and was involved in the "West End Stage" Summer school this year, spending a week in London working with theatre professionals (cast members from Blood Brothers, and Horrid Henry himself! for example) to put on a short performance in Her Majesty's Theatre!

    I'll hush up now :)

    I saw Wicked (again) on December 30th with my DH, DD (age 10), and neice (15). I had seen it in Nov. 2006 with Idina Menzel... and had not wanted to ruin that awesome experience with a revisit. But, my neice really wanted to see this particular show. Well, it was a matinee and the two main parts (Galinda and Eufalba) were being played by the unuderstudies... but they were fantastic and the show was great. I had forgotten so much in three years.

    We're going to try and get to Jersey Boys very soon.

    I love musicals, me & MiL go as much as possible, but we tend to stick to the local theatre's as she is in a wheelchair & it's far easier if I drive than if we go on the train somewhere. We've seen so many inc Chicago which was brill. We'd love to see The Sound of Music & Pricilla Queen of the Desert, but it's just too far to travel. Hopefully one day they'll be on at the Blackpool Grand :)

    HH,

    Oh, "Priscilla Queen of Desert" -- I loved that film. I will add it to my list.

    GE -- I liked Stomp, but found it after a bit "same ole, same ole". There wasn't really a story line, just a "talent show" aspect to it.
    "We will Rock You" was fantastic -- and, yes, the storyline is bit silly-ish but it worked with Queen's music and that was amazing! A must see!
    So, how is "Blood Brothers"? I've heard good things.

    I would have LOVED to have seen Idina Menzel in Wicked, although I am a bigger fan of Kerry Ellis, and thought she was fabulous in the role, as is Alexia Khadime.

    I was in London earlier this week (and got stuck trying to get home :( ) and saw Legally Blonde, Blood Brothers, Phantom of the Opera and Rise and Fall of Little Voice. All of which were really really good. Mel C was brilliant in Blood Brothers, better than I was expecting, and really enjoyed Diana Vickers performane in Little Voice.

    I love theatre :)

    I also saw We Will Rock You the week before on tour in Edinburgh. It was really good though because there was a group of 11 of us so the tickets were all really cheap!

    Mel C's acting is really raw too. Because she isn't a trained actress, its just very real, like, she is simply reacting how she would in real life.

    She made me cry, in a good way hehe. I mety her at the stage door too, and she was lovely!
