I would like to see Wicked. That has been playing in Melbourne and hasn't been to Sydney yet. I've seen the others you have mentioned as professional productions. We have a local amateur theatre group and they have put on Cats, Les Miserable, Guys and Dolls and Calamity Jane and I have seen their versions too.

However, my next wish would be to see them on Broadway one day.

Can you tell I like musicals?

I am not big on dramas though. I did see some Shakespearean pieces when I was in high school, like Hamlet and Julius Caesar.

Really want to see Wicked.

Seeing Priscilla in July, that will have to do for now! And I'd be very happy to see Les Mis again (even Susan Boyle can't ruin it for me)

I'd be interested to see Jude Law as Hamlet too.

I never saw Miss Saigon. It was on last year in Sydney and I didn't get a chance to see it.
I did see Lion King and Beauty and the Beast a few years ago (Hugh Jackman played Gaston, before he was really well known).

What about the Boy from Oz? If it went to the West End, would you see it? I loved it with Hugh Jackman and saw the original with Todd McKenney. I would love to see this one again.

What's the name of the musical where its performed on roller skates and I think they were supposed to be trains? I wouldn't mind seeing that again. Last time I saw it - about 20 years ago, the whole experience was ruined because it was done under a giant marquee and it rained and of course the marquee leaked and they had to cancel the performance halfway through because it was too dangerous.

Mary Poppins is coming to Australia early next year, but its going to open in Melbourne first, so I'll have to wait at least 18 months before it gets to Sydney. A long wait.

I would love to see Sister Act and 9 to 5: The Musical. I love both films although when it comes to Hairspray, I prefer the original.

Hope that you really enjoyed Mamma Mia Jonny, we saw it not long after it opened in the west End, must of been in about 2000, loved it , it was brilliant and one of our top musicals we have seen of them all

my mum really enjioyed Sister Act, she said it was a bit slow to get into it and get started, and also , they use none of the songs from the film in it, they sing all new/different songs and it was quite different from the film, but she said Sheila Hancock was outstanding and fantastic, everyone was up dancing in the aisles at the end and really enjoyed it, only thing was they had sold completely out of programmes, so they were not able to get one which was a bit of a shame, also ,Whoopi goldberg makes a vocieover announcement at the beginnig which she said was funny

Mama Mia was amazing, a really good feel good show, I had a blokes head in front of my view all the way through which was a shame as I couldn't see the center of the stage without tilting my head to the side. But fab anyway
