Hoping to dayseat for this soon.

Me too. I've seen it, but desperately want to see it from the front. Plus she's a dame now!

So how's this doing? I wasn't a fan, but it seems to be plodding along.

In Topic: Bad Behaviour At A Show

Some idiot was playing Flappy Bird on their iphone last week at Matilda, and another idiot (3 seats away) had their headphones in watching a video on their iphone.

Front of house staff were wonderful after I spoke to them at the interval, but the bigger problem is that it becomes just as distracting when the FOH staff have to have a word with the offenders mid performance.

All it comes down to is bad manners. If you aren't enjoying something, either leave or have a (quiet) nap.

I don't see it working. Queen were brilliant, but they used the big hit in #1. But to their credit, the show must have made enough profit to make #2 a viable option - nothing ventured and all that.

There was talk of a Mamma Mia 2 at one point wasn't there?

Unsurprisingly considering the reaction of these boards, they didn't bother to.

Which is right, to be honest. All 5 productions had strong casts, good direction and a healthy box office. When this season was announced there was huge potential for something quite special about the whole affair, but in the end the quality of the works selected let it down. The only one I really enjoyed was Daniel Radcliffe's, which incidentally is the only one to get a transfer.
