Went back again tonight and took a friend (who unfortunately got there late and missed the first couple of numbers). Loved it just as much this time.

And damn, those songs get stuck in your head. ^_^  I was singing "Tailor-Made Man" and "We've Got Time" allll the way home. They'd better make a soundtrack, because I'd snap one up in a heartbeat. (Especially if it had a lyrics booklet - I caught more this time, but some of the ensemble lines continued to escape me.)

That was really fast for a second visit!

And yes those two songs are my favourite from the show! Such tender emotions in the songs...

Is a soundtrack on the cards? There seems to be a great demand for it. I'd get one myself if it is. Replaying the only track on their website isn't sufficient anymore =P

Hee, my friend wanted to go, so yeah, we went pretty quickly. :D

I really hope a soundtrack is on the cards. It's the world premiere, after all - they should make an "Original Cast" version. There's some illegally taped footage up on Youtube but it's a) not much and b ) illegal. I want a proper soundtrack. :)

Ah yes the footage on youtube. I have to admit I did listen to them after I came back from the show because the songs were stuck in my head. But the gigglings were a bit distracting. So yes to a proper soundtrack!

I finally got to see this on Saturday afternoon. I wasn't sure what I'd make of it as it didn't really appeal to me, I only went to see a certain member of the cast. I was really pleased to get a second row ticket for £15 - the box office offered me a day seat which I didn't know they did. The stage is very high though, I'd say on a comparison with the Prince Edward. The very front row had sold out by the time I got my ticket, which I'm glad of now as I don't think I would have liked sitting there, even from the second row I found I was looking up.

I thought all the cast were great, Dylan in particular was excellent. I'm pleased I went but wouldn't rush to go again as it wasn't really my thing. I thought the ending was very sudden and not at all what I was expecting after reading on here it was emotional. It looked like only about half of the seats in the stalls were sold, which I think was a shame, I'm surprised I hadn't seen more advertising for the show, especially on the Tube.

Seeing this again today.
There's still £20 tickets available on Ticketmaster, so don't be shy and see it on its last day!

Saw it again last night.
Still thought it was a lovely piece. Hope it lives on in some form.

Yes, I got to see it twice during the run, including the very first preview.  I loved it and hope we see it return again in the future.  A shame that tickets didn't sell a bit faster.

Of the 57 performances, my friend has seen 37 of them, I think it was the writer who said she has seen it more than he has :blink:
Have to say, it didnt really appeal to me, the story (based on real life events) was interesting, but the music didn't really do anything for me
Chasing the music, trying to get home.......
Seeee ya George..... See ya sunshine.... w****nker!
