So, onto the show. I saw Mormon within it's first few weeks of opening and loved it, thought it was practically the second coming. This completely blew it out of the water. I didn't expect anything to be so magically beautiful, touching, heart breaking and funny at the same time. Loved the on stage bar, the pre-show show and how it seamlessly moves into the show so that it feels like you there in an irish pub. The two leads were outstanding (never mind the fact they are both stunning) and I really hope they are considered for awards next year. I cried my eyes out throughout the second act and at the end! There are no words really to describe its sheer beauty, it's just faultless.
That being said, my mum wasn't as keen as me. Her main gripe was a lack of plot, but I thought it was fine. I think part of it was the fact she had a very obscured view. She rated it 8/10 still, I just think the magic was slightly lost on her. Afterwards we spotted the little girl who was on last night who was telling her mum "it's a night I'll never forget." What an absolute sweetheart, made a beeline to tell her she was fabulous.
Truly a hidden gem of the west end. I will tell everyone I know to see it, and would return in a heartbeat.

I'm glad to hear that Once is getting some high profile promotion. I loved the show when I saw it in Dublin a couple of months ago and would like to see it have a decent run in London.

Must have been his first show? Was anyone there? Would love to hear thoughts on his performance.
