Titanic, but in a less cartoony designed production than the Broadway version.

oh good - it has such a great score, and the New York production was beautifully sung, but hampered with terrible cut-out sets, lacking any of the texture of the music or subject. It had some good uses of perspective and such but was way too pantomime for the subject. I saw an amateur production in Liverpool last year that was simply astonishing, and near 100 people on stage, amazingly well drilled and lit with such emotional sensitivity. Great stuff.

I wish Next To Normal and Aida (the Disney one) would come to London. Why do Disney seem to skip the West End in favour of other parts of Europe?

Really glad Titanic is going to the Southwark Playhouse too!
