Hi Everybody,

Went to see Cabaret matinee today at the Savoy Theatre, having never seen this in film or in the theatre l loved it. Will Young was superb. Got front row seat for £30 which was booked in advance, definitely worth a look.

Best wishes
Caz  :)

I thought th lowest price was 35? I really want to see this, I love the film. I was hoping they'd have the same pricing structure as for Legally Blonde wih 20 upper circle tickets but apparently not.

The stage musical is quite different to the film (actually there have been several versions pre & post the film) and is, in my opinion, better. Much more powerful, I hope this production does it justice, looking forward to finding out.

I absolutely hated this when I saw it on tour, don't like to complain about performers but it contained one of the worst performances I have ever seen on stage. They sucked the life out of every scene they were in. Matt Rawle was good though.
