Where's our weekend thread? Is Sam ill or something?!
I need something to aid my essay procrastination! I've taken to motivating myself by buying a cast album from itunes for every 1000 words I write...it's actually working very well!
So, there's a vague topic I guess for this weekend, most recent musical CDs you bought and what you thought?

Not bought any for ages, but as my new job starts in a week this situation may be rectified soon, but alas like Buddy I am leaving town.

Probably the last were hair, and one of those bumper broadway favouites for about 50p, also got rent/billy elliot dvds (boxed together weird combo) at the same time.

Since that production of Rope a few years ago, JB has nothing more to offer, I fear...

I got a JB cd for Christmas last year...not really listened to it. I do quite like him, but I know what you mean about being more boring on CD.

Am thinking about getting Zorro actually. Curse that Weakest Link special for making me notice Matt Rawle! (though I could get Evita instead, and have Quast too!)

Barrowman is fabulous in pantomime. It's like his perfect medium or something. I can totally take or leave his solo CDs though. :3

I don't remember the last recording I bought myself. It might have been Billy Elliot, pleasingly located in a charity shop for 1.99. :3

I can imagine Barrowman and panto being a match made in heaven!

I will be seeing his 'Hood' on Tuesday in Birmingham as when it gets to Cardiff in December it will be a lot smaller production for the New.

In the 60s and 70s they used to close Easter week.
re: Don't I get a prize?
The longest running panto in the UK was John Inman as 'Mother Goose' at the Bristol Hippodrome in 1980. It opened on Dec 20th and closed April 12th. 2 shows every day. It then went to the Victoria Palace theatre in London the following Christmas
