My first West End show was We Will Rock You in 2005. My first musical though was Kruimeltje in the Netherlands in the early nineties.

My first musical was The Sound of Music with Petula Clarke at Apollo Theatre in 1982 - was a birthday treat. Got my first ever autograph then from Michael Jayston who was Captain Von Trapp.  He was very nice.  Hooked on musicals ever since. Used to go yearly as a birthday treat and once working and earning went bit more often.

First West End - Grease with Samantha Janus and Shane Ritchie

First proper musical - Barnum UK tour with Paul Nicholas

However the show that really got me into musicals was the national tour of cats in early 90s which i saw sometime between barnum and grease. barnum nearly put me off

Joseph with Jason Donovan at the Palladium I was about 15 and totally loved it. I have looked back since :-)

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

Also Joseph at the Palladium, in 1992, but with Schofield in the role (during his first short stint).  That night is entirely responsible for the 450 times I've been to the theatre since!
