I saw 'American Idiot: The Musical' last night. It's wasn't free but it was totally worth the price. The actors was good for most part (although some of the voices were shaky). The set was really good, loved all the TV Screens showing pictures. I also loved the fact that there was a live band on stage. The song were great (well, I am a massive Green Day fan) and there was some great songs from 21st Century Breakdown. The only dissapointment for me was the story, I didn't think it was as good as it could have been! I reccomend everyone that is a Green Day fan to watch this - you will not be disappointed.

9/10

I went to see the Crazy Horse, Forever Crazy show yesterday - different to other shows and very entertatining.

NOTE: I had secured tickets via Showfilmfirst but they had run out of tickets when I got there - which didn't make sense to me. Fortuneately I was at the front of the 'see if Showfilmfirst can allocate more tickets' queue and so myself and my + 1 were lucky enough to get a seated tickets.

SFF tickets always state they are first come first serve and are no guarantee that you actually get in (they over allocate because people always book tickets even when they don't go and they don't want to end up with empty seats).

Do you mean "The Crazy Horse"? If your ticket states 7pm that is the start time. As for how early to get there... usually the ticket/email states the box office time, if not, email SFF :)

Oh btw, I went to see Jumpy (understudy) last week, at the Duke of York Theatre.
The mother - teenager relation was perfectly played! Even though I think the play was actually more about being a middle age mum, lost between desires and family, between starting a new life and keeping an established lifestyle.
Some moments were a bit too boring to me (and I didn't understand everything one of the actors said cause he had a strong accent), but it was entertaining and funny. Very English, too.
I would probably give it a 7/10.

I went to see Sound of Migration yesterday. It was an interesting experience as altough i did not understand alot of what was being said and sang, i stayed til the end. Audience around me were loving it. HUGH MASEKELA has some nifty dance moves.

Just reviewed 'Forever Crazy'. It's about as erotic as an autopsy.
