Saw this at last! Hilarious. Will definitely be going back! Robert Lindsay was wonderful even though his voice wasn't too strong IMO. Rufus Hound - brilliant and a really good voice, I thought! Katherine Kingsley was amazing as always - so nice to hear her real (and excellent) voice after her Lina Lamont! Great ensemble too. My only problem was with the diction - I don't know whether it was perhaps the orchestra was too loud or they just weren't enunciating but I missed a lot of the lyrics - a shame given how clever those I heard were.

I think there's no problem with having long running shows perform - in fact I think it's a good thing to remind people of what is out there, since so many of the shows that actually win have already closed and so we can't go see them even if we wanted to. However I think it would be nice to have some other shows perform as well as the classic les mis wicked phantom, that aren't nominated this year maybe because they opened last year or just weren't nominated eg. Lion king, committments, spamalot.
I also think we don't always need to hear the same song fr the 'long runners' - while I didn't like the way they cut Masquerade, it was nice to hear something other than the classic Phantom of the Opera. Les Mis has plenty of songs in it - we don't need to hear One Day More again!

All this has givern me an idea. Complimentary (included in ticket price) cloakroom phone charging.  Hand your phone in before the start of the performance, gets charged during the show so the owner can't play with it, collect it when they leave.
At least then nobody could use their phone during the performance!!
