Mash-up/incorrect lyrics time! ;) (I swear to all anyone has ever found holy, I am going to go see BoM as soon as I can manage travelling to and around London.)

Galinda: What is this feeling, so sudden and new?
Elphaba: I felt it the moment I laid eyes on you.
Galinda: My pulse is rushing.
Elphaba: My head is reeling.
Galinda: My face is flushing.
Both: What is this feeling? Fervid as a flame, does it have a name? Yes! It's-
Elder McKinley: Woah! Turn it off!
:rofl:

I'm waiting for it to come to London to see it, but the soundtrack and what I've seen on YouTube are both amazing :shrug:

Must agree that from the soundtrack/every other scrap of media I've been desperately consuming online that seems fully deserved! (though I'm not a massive theatre buff, but equally maybe props to Hamilton for making me that bit more interested?) It does seem a little ridiculous that it's nominated in literally every category it's eligible for though!

I'm almost annoyed it's done quite so well, it's somehow going to make it impossibly harder to get tickets when it does come to London! Really curious to see who the cast are going to be on the West End.

Oh just you wait I am seeing Hamilton by hook or by crook, I will get tickets somehow! :lol:
I generally have really good luck buying tickets so I'm hoping my lucky streak will continue!

Thanks for that Ickle, an interesting read! Definitely hope more of these come to the west end :thanks:
I saw similar 'relaxed' showings of films offered at a couple of cinemas in Canada and think it's such a good idea to make theatre experiences more accessible

For all my musical nerds on here :love2:


Also not musical, but still theatre, the reviews for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are very good, so I wonder how long it will run / how far it will tour.. it's currently booked for the next year in London and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in a few months :D

I love musicals but I only see films like Rocky Horror, Pitch Perfect, Grease, Mamma Mia, HSM, or Tv shows like Glee (until season 2 no more) and I hardly have seen a musical where it supposed to, my dream is to go to Broadway to see Wicked or any other show. Actually the only broadway musical I've seen is American Idiot and I hope I can see it live one day and not on youtube, I cry evertime watching it, it's great. But yeah, I love musicals but I don't get to see them on the theater :shrug: .

I'm off to see In The Heights in London tonight, anybody seen it? I'm hoping for good things as Hamilton is so amazing and both are written by Lin Manuel Miranda :D

JEALOUS! 8-)

It's very different from Hamilton, even though there's... similar themes. A couple of peeps in the OBC that were in both... but the soundtrack is fab! - And it won Tony's, so... Enjoy! :ribena:

I GOT HAMILTON TICKETS!!

Night I wanted, and exact dream-seats too. I mean, I might not be able to afford bills or food until next Feb, but I got Hamilton tickets! (Also Wicked and BoM tickets for in-between now and then.)

Just wanted to pop on to gush about seeing Hamilton in Chicago last week. Let me preface my opinion by saying I have seen Phantom, Miss Saigon, and Joseph and the Amazing Tecnicolor Dreamcoat in Chicago and touring company versions of Wicked, Cats, and Jesus Christ Superstar, but I've never been to Broadway or the West End.
Hamilton is hands down the best show I've ever seen. Except for a very short dialogue scene, everything else is singing and therefore on the soundtrack. Dan and Phil had me worried that maybe I'd spoiled it for myself by listening to the soundtrack, and I was also worried the Chicago cast would not be as good as Broadway, but these fears were not reality. The choreography, singing, costumes, acting, everything was perfect. The one possible mishap was the King dropping his scepter which I'm not sure was supposed to happen. Speaking of the King, he was hilarious and possibly my favorite part of the show.


Maybe I will add more about this later. I have thoughts too about what I think or wonder will be deppy's reactions. Too bad Ill have to wait until at least December. Wonder when they're going.
"I--we--Phil and I do a lot of things and sometimes they all have to happen at the same time, but it's happy because we love life and love what we do."
