A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

And to think we all thought thought that Parade was going to get it. Do you think that Hairspray has a chance of winning at the Olivier or will Parade get the Best New Musical award?

If winning the Standard award was an indicator of getting a cast album, we'd have a London recording of Caroline or Change out, or Full Monty, or any number of shows. The market for cast albums is radically diminishing, and I'm not sure if the producers will want to splash the cash when the Broadway album has been out for so long AND the film soundtrack is now out. Maybe they will, but I don't think so personally.

To be honest I'd rather Parade had won, but I think all three nominees were really rather excellent. Congrats to Hairspray!

(and also to Anne-Marie Duff for winning Best Actress, who was sensational in Saint Joan at the National)

Well I'll go to the foot of our stairs!

I predicted Parade but I'm glad I'm wrong.

I was there tonight and was in the bar when I heard a huge cheer from the stage, the barman told me that they were just being told about winning the award. Michael Ball mentioned it at the end (when saying about theatre cares week) and got a huge cheer from the audience.

The show is amazing, especially Leanne as Tracy!!!
