I was a bit too young to know about Jesus, but I enjoyed Superstar.

How does it look like a good score from the song names?

Do they really recon a musical about BEFORE he's a wizard  will fill such a space?! It's like going to see a musical about the phantom learning to play the organ

In terms of collaborators, playwrights don't come much better than Hampton, directors than Sir Richard and DB is very experienced and can turn a phrase. I just don't think its "that kind of score". This is ALW with his foot off the commercial pedal for the first time ever - he is under no pressure here for the big key change, the sort of song that Spamalot took the piss out of ("the Song that Goes Like This") - for this show he has written what he wants to do at this time in his career and I actually like how it has turned out. It has an authenticity to it that scores which demand a big tune for the sake of it may not have. There are songs here that are way different from what many would consider a typical ALW and I am enjoying getting to know the numbers more. I actually quite like the scaled down orchestrations as well.  Hopefully I can get to see it before it closes.

Is Mr Barnaby still banging on?

Its a shame Michael Jackson died, Thriller was DAYS away from closing, then he died, and its still running. There are too many blood clots in our London Theatres that need to be gotten rid of. But I know this is more a theatre buffs opinion!

How refreshing to read something positive about it on here! I'm mystified why people have it in for the show.

Oh the irony.

It could but it doesn't.  I like the music of many show I see, and then get a cast recordung if there is one.

MrBarnaby you are intriguing to me, you bad mouth every show on here except this one and I really like Charlie but even I will admit it is not the best thing in the west end and is very poor in places.... Can't work out why you are so positive about this show and negative about everything else!

#278807 Is A Theatre Trip Affordable To The Masses?

Posted Mrs Lovett's Meat Pie on 21 September 2013 - 08:49 PM

If u know a production hasn't sold out then hang around until the interval and then slip in for free! I do this all the time!!
FACT - all first acts are rubbish and 94% of on stage nudity happens in the second half.
BONUS - if u sneak in literally just as the interval ends u should b able to find loads of half drunk drinks and b able to get knobbled for free :)
