This was tremendous fun - a real treat for anyone who's a fan of Book of Mormon or just intelligent, bleak satire wrapped up in a musical. I realise it's been knocking around for just over a decade, but it was incredibly fresh. Plus in comparison to recent new musicals I've seen (American Psycho and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) it actually had real tunes. You know, the ones you hum to yourself for the rest of the evening, like they used to make. 


Perhaps it could have aimed to show off its depth a bit more, as it certainly had that potential. Though I wouldn't have wanted that at the expense of the pace and levity.

Last night I saw Urinetown the musical at the St James Theatre. This is the best show I've seen in years. It's funny, it's gorey, it's brilliant with a clever set design. Jenna Russell and Richard Fleeshman appeared as lovers together in Ghost the musical, now they appear again as you've never seen them before. This is no Mamma Mia, it's raw, it's gritty, it's atmospheric, and has a fantastic score - I am still humming the title song today. I'm going to book again before it's sold out.

Brilliant show! They are clearly having a ball! Its a must see! Get tickets! Really mixed audience but everyone was having a great time. Have not laughed this much since Book for Mormon. Brilliant music and set. The cast are fantastic.

Hey Annie, don't worry - use code "UGC157" and you can still get top tickets for £25. The code expires in a week so hurry! Others feel free to use as well :)
