So tempted to see this again - it was the first West End show I clearly remember seeing, it was such fun! On the other hand, I was 10 - seeing it through adult eyes might change my views....

"Murder is a very British thing, isn't it? I mean, it's almost like a hobby over there."
"Why do you insist you must hear the words? When you know I cannot give you words. Not the ones you need..."

This is incredibly sad news - feel so bad for the cast and crew.

I had booked to see this on Saturday May 21 - the one consolation for me is that now I can manage to get to see Fings Ain't What They Used To be at the Union instead.
