I would love a London cast recording. Personally I prefer Declan's take on the songs to Steve's (although I haven't seen Steve live so I admit I'm probably a bit biased).

I was at the social media call yesterday and thought it was a good idea to get the word out about the show. I won't get the chance to upload my photos and videos until the end of the week but if anyone is interested I'll be happy to post the link on here (wouldn't want to be accused of shamelessly promoting my blog though ;-).

Hi everyone. I'm thinking of trying to get day seats tomorrow but was wondering how big the queue is before the box office opens and how likely I am to get tickets if I can't make it for 10 but later, say 11 or 12?

You should be able go get a seat. The times I day seated mid week there were between 4 and 10 people in the queue when the box office opened. So I wouldn't count on a front row seat (although you might even get one of those) but usually the box office will be able to offer you other seats for £25. :)

Do note though that it's Bank Holiday tomorrow, so I'd assume the box office will open at 12pm, but I might be wrong.
