I saw the show on Saturday night for the 4th time (but for the first time this year and this cast) after deciding the trek to the ITV studios for ALW's special was not worth it, and I'm happy to say that it's still one of the West End's top shows. It hasn't lost anything in the year it's been open and the new cast are just as wonderful as the first. Was particularly pleasantly surprised by Jennifer Ellison who was absolutely perfect as Lina. Managed to get day seats in the front row at 5.30pm but the house was full as usual. Just an absolute joy from start to finish. Look forward to seeing the tour, and congratulations to Ms Ellison on her good news!

Yep wonder when she'll leave. Probably within a month or so I guess - cant keep falling off the bench in Duelling Cavalier for much longer!

Shame it's closing I have really enjoyed it the 3 times I have seen it. Haven't seen the new cast yet but it looks like I have 12 weeks to do so!
