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. ^^
