Been a long time since I last updated. Whoops.

Since I last updated... I saw Love Never Dies (matinee) and Legally Blonde (evening) again. Legally Blonde on cast change day too.

Love Never Dies was as amazing as ever, although the new Gustaves aren't up to the levels the originals were just yet, and Legally Blonde... well, there aren't words.

Cast change day was phenomenal. I've never heard so much screaming... Sheridan could barely begin her part of Omigod You Guys, and Aoife kept getting cut off after the end of Legally Blonde Remix. So much screaming!

There was a screaming person next to me, and a couple behind us. Thanks for deafening us, people in row C (and person in row B), but we understand why. :3

It was incredible... so many tears at the end, and Sheridan breaking down and being unable to finish the first part of Find My Way... God. Emotional experience much?

Despite the Savoy's failure of a Stage Door spoiling things a little, I must say that it's an experience I'm always going to remember. Much like getting a picture with a freak. >.> Charity thing at LND - donate £5, hug a freak (or all three of them) and get a picture.

Anyway. Done rambling. Going to go be happy about the Sister Act tour and play Fable III some more. :3

(One last note: Thriller Live tomorrow! I love touring musicals...)

God, I fail at updating this thing. ^^; Sorry.

Spamalot was all kinds of epic. Jodie Prenger is hilarious as the Lady of the Lake.

I've discovered what my birthday presents are, musical theatre-wise: two shows, for the 23rd October. Love Never Dies matinee... and the final show (of this cast) for Legally Blonde! :D Exciting.

Only a mini-update now. I don't want to clog up flists with crap.

It's been a while since I last updated this. Whoops.

Let's start with the musicals: since I last updated, I've seen Legally Blonde, Love Never Dies and Wicked. All three are bloody amazing.

Legally Blonde was full of understudies, as Sheridan had injured her back doing the Bend and Snap a night or two before, but it was still amazing. Caroline Keiff is fantastic in it, as per usual, and Duncan was okay. It was rather lovely to see Alex Gaumond again, as he'd played Galileo when we saw the WWRY tour. Amazing man.

Love Never Dies was amazing. The set design is beautiful, the songs and staging have been neatened up since the concept album... Sierra made me cry, amazing woman, and I think Summer does an amazing job of conveying Meg's slipping grasp on sanity.

Bathing Beauty comes with a surprise in the form of her ending up topless, though. You've been warned... even if I rather liked it. :3

And Wicked... Rachel and Louise are fantastic. Cassandra Compton is a lovely new Nessa (who wore stripes at Stage Door!) and it's lovely to see George as Boq at long last. :3

Tonight, we're going to see Spamalot! I'm looking forward to that.

In other news:
  • I'm having a lot of physiotherapy recently.
  • My girlfriend and I finally came out. It's all good, really.
  • I have tickets for Amy Macdonald, in Manchester, on my birthday. :D Exciting.
  • I'm a dorkface.

    That's about it. Toodles. ^^
