    So, I was hoping to see Avenue Q while in London this april, but it seems I've missed the boat. Aaaawwwwwww.

    I've had a flick (or click) through the web to see what all is on, but nothing really stands out.

    So, I was wondering if anyone has been to, or knows of anything on London theatres at the minute?

    I've already seen Stomp, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Dirty Dancing (meh).

    Avenue Q is (was? huh, didn't know it had gone) FUCKING ACE.

    So yeah you've fucked your life up there. Nothing else worth seeing unless you're into sanitised or utterly pedestrian drivel. :)

    I noticed around Xmas that Avenue Q was ending in March or so and had hoped to see it before it goes.

    /probably won't happen :-(

    Didn't know it had finished. Shame, it was brilliant.

    Jersey Boys is fantastic, or at least it was in New York.

    The Woman in black has been around for donkeys, but is pretty damn good. Sit in the Stalls though. The 39 Steps is meant to be a good - I've been meaning to go see it myself.

    I've heard very mixed things about that. I'd like to see it but after Mary Poppins I'm a bit wary of forking out 35ish for it in case it's shit.

    Is Les Mis still running?

    I wish they'd do Cats and Starlight Express again.

    I never really believed that I'd find a stage play spooky.

    Not as nice as I used to be

    Bump.

    Top Hat or One Man, Two Guvnors?

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Tell you what All New People, Zach Braff's play, is fantastic.

    I saw The Book of Mormon yesterday, a musical from the creators of South Park and my cheeks still hurt from laughing so much. Its brillant, maybe the best west end show I have seen. Not only is it funny from start to finished its accompanied by talented dancing, catchy tunes and a story that finishes with a decent message.
    Don't be put off by its South Park heritage either, its controversial but its based in reality and never disgusting. It also won a fuck load of professional stage awards for its script, its music and its direction.
    Go buy tickets now.

    I saw Wicked a couple of years ago. Hated it.

    It tried too hard to make even the most minor thing in the Wizard of Oz mean something in this backstory. I half expected midiclorians to come into the plot at some point.

    The first half wasn't too bad. But the second half was very poor.

    Oh and the songs are arse.

    You're a bloke, you're not supposed to like Wicked. Or Mamma Mia or any other musical clearly aimed at the fairer sex.

    I must admit I didn't really want to see it. Was taking the wife for her birthday. And some freakishly tall person sat in front of me so I couldn't see half the stage.

    There you go, job done. Brownie points earned and you didn't even have to watch it!

    I will book my tickets now for 2015, or whenever the hell any tickets are available.

    I'm going to London next month and was hoping to see a show. Are tickets for book of Mormon really sold out?

    Our month-long focus on indie games starts with my look at the PS4's best game (still): Resogun!

    Or prohibitively expensive for any that remain.

    Wicked is great, so is Rocky Horror Shor, but be prepared for everyone dressing up and dancing. Felt like a bit of a tool in my suit doing the timewarp.

    I'm fairly certain I'd feel a bit of a tool doing the timewarp regardless of how I was dressed.
  • Deleted user 21 March 2013 16:21:11
    Took her indoors to see Legally Blonde. Didnt think I would enjoy it but actually really good - would see it again!

    Bump.

    Book of Mormon was incredible. I've never been to a show where the whole audience dance about clapping along during a standing ovation.

    ORRRRLLAAAANDDDDOOOO!

    I wanted to see that but I didn't have time. I saw "Matilda" though. That was incredible. One of the best stage shows I've ever seen

    Yup.

    I love every moment of it.

    Favourite shows of recent years are The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time (the chap who plays Christopher is a small revelation), The Lion King (seen it THREE times now!), Sister Act, War Horse (a million times better than the Spielberg film), Young Frankenstein in New York and of course, The Woman in Black.

    ... kind of thought a stage show couldn't be scary, but I was so wrong!

    Got tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in a couple of weeks time.

    : )
