Has anyone asked Robert Lindsay how his hangover was after the Oliviers?

I wonder how many of the reviews will say it "lacks the X Factor"?

Apparently the stairs on stage received their own round of applause

I have had stairs for a long time

They received no such reception this evening

Is it wrong to think regional audiences are more easily impressed?

Is this

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

They designed the set with the Garrick in mind, but then lost out on it.   I do wonder if they could have used their budget a bit more wisely, on publicity?  The public in general have no idea what it's about, and when you do explain it to them it's a case of "Why would I want to see that then?"... and the stage photos only serve to make it look dark and inaccessible.  It doesn't help (imho) that the poster looks like they're drinking urine from a sewage pipe!

Most shows don't have the song titles in the program during previews because the order of songs change, things are cut or added, and even the title of a song has been know to change.

Maybe next time he slags someone off for being too musical theatre he'll have a better understanding of how difficult it actually is!

Billy desperately wants to get to their 10th Birthday, and make a DVD of the musical..... so it's holding out until then as best it can.  I wouldn't move though, as it took ages to tunnel out under the theatre for the "house" set.
