Packed so full of MT references I think I'm going to have to go back to take them all in...

Favourite songs were Die Vampire Die (which is also my fav song on the CD) and - surprisingly - Monkeys and Playbills, a song I usually skip on the CD but whose staging with all the projections was done so beautifully.
Cast were fab and harmonised so well together. <10 free seats, which isn't that bad for a weekday at a fringe theatre I'd say.
Only sad that I won't be back in town until after the show closes so I can't see it again. But if you are in town until early september - go see it.
Now let's all hope to get a production of "Now. Here. This." next year...

The in jokes were better done in the drowsy chaperone and seemed a bit too smug in this and the character development was lacking, this could be because it was a shortened version in Edinburgh. It was instantly predictable and the B plot with the girls just didnt seem to make sense to me, they hate each other then they like each other without ever really earning those dramatic beats. For me Merrily is a far better musical. I'd be interested to see what the team behind this come out with in the future because I normally view a show about struggling writers as a last resort.
Again, just my opinion and it clearly has a dedicated fan base. I'm glad it didn't come to the west end as it would have tanked.

They already came out with "Now. Here. This.": http://www.vineyardt.../now-here-this/
Haven't seen NHT on stage (yet, hopefully). Like the soundtrack, but not as much as TOS.
