POW has now become one of my favourite Londobln theatres, doesn't look like there are many bad seats in the house unless you're rift at the back of the stalls, and even then you're only missing out on the revolving Angel at the top of each act.

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I was surprised by how much I loved Alexia (as I was indifferent about her in Les Mis compared to other performers), she was a really sweet Nabulungi.

I missed that as we were in Row O of the stalls. I didn't consider the possibility of the dress circle hanging so low down. Will have to go again (as if I wasn't going to anyway!)

Alexia's voice sounded so much cleaner than when she was in wicked, and wow did she look young, thought she was terrific and great chemistry with Jared.

We too were in Row O and missed the revolving angel, but other than that the view was surprisingly good that far back. I guess I need to g0 and see it again and sit closer to the stage this time around (not that I really needed an excuse to go back, we already decided to try and see the show again asap )

Yes, it was the hardback one that's also on Amazon.

I loved the whole show, and the little hitches made it all the more hilarious, such as the flying prongs, or the late smoke shoot in Man Up, which Jared looked thoroughly terrified by!!!
Gavin was wonderful as Elder Price, possibly even prefer him to Andrew Rannells from the soundtrack! Jared was also very good, pretty similar to Josh Gad I think, but he was the standby for him, so he probably picked up alot of little bits here and there!
The two stars for me though were Stephen and Alexia! Wasn't sure about Alexia going into it as didn't really like her voice as Elphaba, but she sounded so much better last night, and she acted it so sweet, lovely little performance. Stephen was wonderful as I think has already been covered by pretty much everyone else, he played the part as such a loveable character, and you truly felt sorry for him and his 'curse'
I definitely want to go back soon, but it is a lot of money for me to get up to london which may be wasted if I don't win the lottery! But I will definitely try it out at some point, and I will definitely be back when the new cast comes in!
And as for the #LoveMormon I doubt it is a film or anything major as it is only being used by the london account that is using it! So could be the announcement of the next cast? (although it seems quite early for that).
Finally, agree with everyone else about the Prince Of Wales Theatre, Gorgeous, with lovely, helpful staff!
