Welcome to the center of all of my mad ramblings about musical theatre. Read reviews, check out photos and news about musical theatre in the West End!
Okay, I'm starting to feel a little bit better about some of these predcitions, definitely more solid than I did a few months ago. They've certainly been reviewed well (those which have opened already) and we've already had the upset of Katie FInneran not receiving universal praise in Annie. It's sad, everyone was so excited when she was announced. Ah well, let's make fools of ourselves with ludicrously inaccurate predictions, shall we.
