In September, we fell in love with the cast album. In October, we bought tickets. 'Will we be sick of it by the end of June? Probably not.'
June rolls around, and no, not even a little. I went with happydork, purplefringe, raven, shinyjenni, twistedsoup and andrew, on the same night as oliviacirce, aria, starlady, were_duck, laceblade &c, which meant we got to all have slightly dazed dinner together beforehand, which was amazing.
By an astonishing twist of luck, the day we went was the day they were filming it, for archival and hopefully eventually distribution purposes (no one knows when the latter might be). So we had the entire original cast, even Jonathan Groff returning as King George for one night only and clearly having the time of his life. I was entirely ready to be excited about seeing different interpretations from understudies or new cast members, but that was pretty special.
