The Dominion Theatre is a massive space, it is one of the largest auditoriums in London and it is currently home to Big which has a limited run there starring Jay McGuinness in the Tom Hanks role alongside Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud, Matthew Kelly from Stars in Their Eyes and Wendi Peters from Corrie. I saw it on Monday in previews and was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting something more akin to a jukebox musical so was happy when I saw that it was a score with original songs. The set is beautiful evoking the suburbs where Josh lives, the city of New York as well as specific interior…
I am a lucky cow sometimes. I entered the lottery for day tickets to go and see Phoebe Waller-Bridge in her sold-out run at Wyndhams Theatre and I only went and 'won' the chance to buy a pair of tickets at £15. It gets better, I got to the theatre to pick them up and the seats were row A in the stalls pretty much the middle of the front row. So yeah I'm a lucky cow.
