1. It's the worst written show I've ever seen.
2. It's my absoloute favourite show!
Yes, the plot is bad, there are huge holes and no explanations, the jokes are at time borderline panto and the songs are completely hijacked in and don't really make an awful lot of sense with the story.
But this is probably the most fun you'll ever have in the theatre. The key to enjoying Rock You is to get involved, take glowsticks, dance, rock and just have a good time. When you start to feel the story is lacking, just admire the beautiful costumes and take in the insane vocal talent of the performers. My favourite thing about the show is the energy of the cast and just how much they all seem to enjoy themselves night after night, I've yet to see it when the cast have been bad, even the ensemble put everything they have into it and that's what makes it so enjoyable to watch.
I disagree with waiting until it goes on tour, go now while you have a chance as the scale of everything is what makes it such a fantastic show.
Have a spectacular time!

and i'm sure the 2000 paying audience who go to see it, and continue to go back and see it again and again and again agree with you....

Overall, i believe that the current cast was better than last year, there were a few characters that stood out for me Killer Queen, Khashoggi and Vic, even though we had the understudy Ian Carlyle.
We also had the Scaramouche understudy Sarah French-Ellis, who was very good even though i was disappointed because i was really looking foward to seeing Sabrina. But, i still think i prefered Jenna's performance from last year.
Lucy Sinclair was good as Meat, but she didn't stand out like Rachael Wooding did last year. And i would now love to see Rachel Tucker as Meat to see how she will compare.
Ricardo Afonso also stood out as Galileo and also impressed me a lot and i enjoyed his performance just as much as last years Galileo!!
Overall, i had an amazing night, even though it seemed to be quite a dead audience, but i still see it as one of my favourite shows. And i hope to go back soon to see the new cast!!

What happened to her?

I believe she lost a fight with a bike on her way to the theatre on Saturday, and she got herself a sprain and concussion as a consolation prize, according to her twitter

Rachel was on as Scara tonight. I almost went, but then I remembered I only went a week ago and I'm broke.
I hope Sabrina's okay. She's like the most accident prone person in the West End, she's ridiculous. But we love her anyway!!
Speedy recovery please!! *big hugs*
