Sounds like a great line-up this year, and it's for a cause very close to my heart as well.

In 2010, The Night of 1000 Voices will be celebrating its 10th birthday, the 80th birthday of Stephen Sondheim and the 50th Anniversary of this year's charity, Leukemia & Lymphoma Research. Performers to be introduced by the much-loved, AlEd Jones, include London and Broadway's Kerry Ellis (Oliver!, Wicked, Les Mis�rables) and Adam Pascal (Rent, Chess in Concert) and multi-Olivier Award-winning Philip Quast (Les Mis�rables, La Cage Aux Folles); also, the popular The Night of 1000 Voices regulars, Teri Bibb (Broadway's Christine in The Phantom of the Opera), Kenneth Nichols (Lyric Opera of Chicago) and David Michael Johnson (We Will Rock You in Stuttgart) who will return with his show-stopping Jesus Christ Superstar.

This year there will be a birthday tribute to Stephen Sondheim, as well as the most requested favourites from the last 10 years - including You'll Never Walk Alone, The Tonight Quintet, It Ain't Necessarily So, and Don't Cry For Me Argentina. These are just some of the great songs that will be given The Night of 1000 Voices treatment, together with nods to We Will Rock You and The Rocky Horror Show featuring TV's Christopher Biggins. Some surprises have also been promised...

Might have to snag a ticket for this just to hear Philip Quast's gorgeous voice filling such a beautiful venue.

Does anyone reckon an appearance by Sondheim will be one of the surprises alluded to?

All this and the promise of Biggins featuring in a 'nod' to WWRY and The Rocky Horror Picture Show... (actually I think I've just poked my mind's eye out)!
Seen some shows in my time....
