I go to the theatre alone often. Never bothers me at all. Just in case you're wondering, i'm married with family. Yes, it is.some escapism for me.

We are still five months away from the new West End contract starting, so I suspect it's a little premature now for anything other than ideal wishlists :)

Oh and also there is a great quality audio of her doing 'say goodbye' by Scott Alan, I don't know of it is also for the album as the sound quality seems too good for a live performance, but there seems to be applause at the end!

I have to say I'm not a fan of Willemijn's voice, it just sounds very dry on the belting and weak in places.

That video doesn't show her off to her full ability. She was stunning in NYC, blew every other Elphie I'd heard or seen out of the water.
