Viva Forever Wednesday 20 March 2013

Filming an ITV special last Sunday celebrating his 40 year career, Andrew Lloyd Webber revealed that he has plans to ressurrect his ill-fated musical Love Never Dies "later this year or early next".

Our Twitter followers try to sum up The Book Of Mormon!

The Book of Mormon Saturday 16 March 2013

The Book Of Mormon is soon to debut in the UK after taking America by storm.      The musical, written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, was described by the New York Times as "the best musical of the century".       Word of mouth has helped anticipation for the show to build momentum in the UK, but with a title that may misleadingly make some feel the show won't be as understood outside of the States, and near knuckle humour, the magic of the show can be hard to explain to those who haven't heard of it.       We took to Twitter to get our followers to try and describe it.
