    A friend of mine, who rides a Harley Davidson, was part of a group of Harley riders who were filmed driving through London as part of a promo for the Bat Out Of Hell thing. He didn't get a free ticket, though...

    I think it's coming back to London next year and will drag the daughter to it.
    As reviewed over in One Touch Theatre, the music and dance numbers were amazing. The story and book were dogshit awful.

    And I don't mean 'absurd, like We Will Rock You or Rock of Ages'. But just plain crap.

    Ah, thanks. Not sure I was aware of 'One Touch Theatre', is it a thread in this part of the forum?

    When I was on a school exchange trip to Germany my host family (clearly at a loss what to do with this snotty teenager) took me to see a local production of Oklahoma!. I've never seen it in English, so the tunes are still stuck in my head as "Was für ein herrlicher Morgen", etc.

    Presumably there are plenty of schools in non-English speaking countries that put on musicals (for one thing, you can rope in a lot more chorus kids and sell more tickets than for plays), so millions of traumatised kids must have had their own earworms featuring Rodgers & co in Portuguese or whatever.

    Off to ‘Hamilton’ tonight with the entire family. Very excited as my younger daughter has got me hooked on the cast recording since last Easter.

    Les Mis over Xmas was predictably excellent, spent large parts of it in tears post ‘Can You Hear The People Sing’ (i.e. almost the entire second half).
