Thanks - Glad you enjoyed. Its always difficult to get the balance on a show like this right!
  I think you definitely did -  I saw last year's at Wimbledon and much preferred  concentration on the music this time, felt the dancers weren't needed last year.  Also good to have the introductions for most of the songs as the programmes had sold out so if you do it in the future I would like you to introduce all the songs and say which musicals they were from.Thanks again for a superb show!

Just back from the Manchester show (no, it didn't finish at 9pm I live across the road from The Palace!). What a lovely show. Lots of favourites as well as new things to look into. John Owen Jones in fine voice although some of his jokes were a bit sarky, Gareth Gates grows on me all the time, he did a brilliant performance of "Somewhere". Fave lady was a dark haired girl, sounded like a northern Irish accent. Belting voice!

Standing ovation from a full stalls.
   Totally agree with your review - a lovely show which I thoroughly enjoyed - standing ovation in the circle too! A lot of songs that were new to me and I thought all the performers where excellent - loved the duet and the banter between John and Gareth, they were obviously enjoying themselves too. I thought 'One Day More' at the end by the full company was superb - spine tingling actually!  Well done to Spekulation for an excellent show - hope there will be more in the future.

I saw MM last year in Wimbledon and I'm so pleased it's coming to Manchester and especially that John Owen Jones is taking part - I loved him in Les Mis and Phantom and agree with Les Mis lover that a duet between him and Gareth would be really good. For me Gareth was the star last year, good to see  both him and Rachel  in this years show.
