This was a seasonal gift for me, and I thought this was a real delight.  I wish I could say I loved it as much as I love the film, which is undoubtedly in my top ten films of all time (last year, to celebrate my birthday, I stayed at home and watched the film for the umpteenth time, because my life is wild).  I probably enjoyed the film a teeny bit more, but I was just so happy to actually watch this.  All the cast a delight - (showing how bad my awareness of musicals has become) I'd never seen Scarlett Strallen before but now I'm in love, and everyone else was great.  I liked the fact that they didn't try to recreate the film - there was a freshness to "Make 'Em Laugh" or the title track or all of it, really, which was lovely.  I left humming the title tune.  Oh, it was good.  Not perfect, mind, but just a wonderful evening.

I meant to ask - who sang Beautiful Girls?  When they came on I was blown away!  He had a really great voice!

I'm delighted to see this wondful show recasting / moving on / growing up! I hope it continues to do so

Any plans for Broadway? I think it would do really well

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

I went on Tuesday sensational show loved every minute. Daniel Crossley was off but Brendan Cull was excellent in his place. Anyone know who was on as u/s Lina? Didn't get a slip in my programme but she was simply superb. And hilarious!

When I went, I saw Flora Dawson as Lina but I have a feeling she's second cover.

I'm a huge fan of this, going to see it again on Saturday for Scarlett's last night, does anyone know if the rest of the main cast will be on that night? Want to see Adam, Daniel and Katherine again if possible :)
