    As a romantic and loyal person I will go for PHANTOM OF THE OPERA my first musical and will see it again and again. Although there are many others great musicals I still hope PHANTOM will win the Olivier as the best long running musical. If I have a chance to go to this year Oliver I will share more images with ‘THIS LITTLE LADY’

    I saw Cabaret & was blown away by this musical… I expected singing & dancing which I got in abundance. What I did not expect was to be shocked and moved to tears by its underlying story. It taught me a history lesson & left me with a lasting impression. Bravo Cabaret & Bravo to the cast & ensemble.

    Recently went to the preview of ‘Once the Musical’ at Phoenix Theatre. With minimal props (a mock-up of a Dublin bar on the stage) it feels like a cross between a concert and drama. Quite different from the usual staging. Thoroughly enjoyed it though and would recommend.

    Hey JJ, loving your blog! In regards to the question above; I would have to say that my most favourite show in the West End is Blood Brothers, HOWEVER… As it’s now closed, my equally as good second best definatley would have to be Les Miserables (which I’ve seen three times). It’s visually impressive with a deep and powerful storyline which implys moments of power, loss and struggle and the good in people, fighting for what they believe in.

    Enjoy the rest of your week! 😀

    The last time I went to the theatre I saw Cool Hand Luke., It was a Great Production..The Acting was perfection. The Scenery and Costumes were just right..Before the start of the play I had wondered how they were going to do the boiled eggs scene…But when it came to it it was so believable and I was at the front so I could see clearly..It just looks so real..very impressed..

    I’d love to see Les Mis (except I know I’ll be crying as soon as the music starts) or Wicked. Or The Jersey Boys. I love a ‘glossy musical’. Will need two boxes of tissues or a mask! Would like to take my niece who starts her uni course in film production in September and loves all things theatre and film. This would be such a special treat for her (assuming I’m not too embarassing to sit next to!)

    I’d like to see Les Miserables (again!) I watched it a couple of times with my Mum – we used to save up for it each year and I can hear her now singing ‘can you hear the music play’. Sadly she is no longer with us but Les Miserables doesn’t fail to bring back very happy memories.
