#256236 X Factor The Musical To The Palladium

It'll be in the Piccadilly, Gielgud and Palace. You have to follow the band half way through the first act, again in the interval then halfway through the next act.

Craftymiss has got it spot on I think... I so wish it was made more obvious and more clear in the show as that story is interesting and clever, instead it's lost in a confused muddle and never breaks through to the surface.

I am relieved - and pardon my ignorant phrasing - but I am relieved to hear that marvellous swell of 'Bring Him Home' is preserved after the students are all killed.  In the musical, to me, the revolve of the barricade that occurs during that bridge, with Enjolras suspended there and Gavroche on the ground below him, is so moving.  I hope they treat it well on screen.  At least it suggests the moment is still there.

Just you wait till you see that moment in the film. You'll have tears rolling down your cheeks and then a massive smile will burst across your face.....

Some really good points there. I think there is still a 'fear' amongst people who don't attend the theatre regularly who might see it as expensive, exclusive, something you only do on a special occasion and get dressed up for. I treat the theatre like the cinema, visit at least once a week, more often when I can. Normally go straight from work in whatever t-shirt and jeans I've chucked on that day. I'll book in advance for certain things, then wait for reviews of others and book a week or two ahead. All of this is possible because I live in London. When living elsewhere I'd try make a visit a month, drive up, see a show return. It's a commitment both in time and money but it becomes a habit and therefore you do it.

If theatres can make you visiting a habit then you're more likely to do it more often. Grandage doing a deal on booking tickets for all the shows and great prices is an excellent example of this.
