Les Miserables fire in Cardiff 15:14 - Dec 17 with 1762 viewsWxmJax

During a performance of the show, part of the set went up in flames. One theatregoer said, in a Welsh accent, I thought the fire was a part of the show until all the dead bodies started running off

A mate was in the London cast when it was at its peak. “Why don’t you come - I can get you in”.

Not wishing to offend, me and the missus rocked up expecting freebies and I made my way, somewhat smugly, to the box office. to collect our tickets.

“Ah, yes - that’s £84 please”. FFS...😂

I saw it on DVD a few years ago. Three hours long and a load of wánk.

Yep - at least it didn’t cost you eighty four fûcking quid though...

I saw it in Edinburgh. Expensive there too. I really upset Mrs M by singing loudly rather than talking during the break 'I come from God, now bring me beer..' And inventing my own chorus to that 'Master iof the House' shite. 'Stick it up your arse' made much more sense to me.

She's been to see it four times with her mates since.

Similar thing happened in the Liberty ticket office a few years back, whilst I was getting some tickets, a posh lady parked her not so shabby car outside on double yellows, strolled in and said, she'd been told by someone high up, to go an get tickets for the next home game.When she was asked to cough up the 90 quid, she stormed out, without her tickets, must admit, made me chuckle.

So you’ve met Lisa then?

Lovely looking girl but tight as a drum...

I doubt if Lis would be seen dead at Les Mis.

More a La Traviata kinda gal.

My niece was a random urchin in a youth production of Les Mis once so obviously I turned up to watch.

Was dreading it but actually quite enjoyed. Some of the older kids could belt out the tunes.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

My wife sold some art to an opera singer a couple of years ago and she gave us free tickets to see her in the Welsh National Operas production of Khovanshchina.
Bloody good it was too.

Although I’ve seen Traviata more often in fairness...

Middlebrow. Disappointed.

My mate was “swing” (deputising minor roles) and that night had to walk off carrying the flag but didn’t bank on the revolving stage ...😂😂😂

I’m certainly too tight to get done on double yellows at the stadium!

Well that and I always get a lift with my Dad who has a parking space. If necessary, I park in Morriston and get him to pick me up there

Lol.

I like a musical. I’m going to see Whoopi in Sister Act at the Hammy O next summer. Although most recently I went to see Agrippina at the opera house. So swings and roundabouts...

I saw Ryan and Ronnie a few times at the Grand.

The best I ever saw in panto there was Christopher Biggins doing Mother Goose. About 20 of us went - last night when they bugger about. I was crying.

A friend of mine plays keyboards in a lot of musicals. I sat with him in the pit at Wicked a few months ago. Brilliant fun.

I absolutely love Handel opera. Handel in general really, but the operas are really something else.

Just glorious.
