Tonight. I saw this. It rocked my world. What unbelievable group of humans made this? This is everything. Beg, borrow, wait in a queue and get the last spare seat. I don’t even like musical theatre and I bloody well cried. Twice. Pure joy in the beautifully restored Victoria Palace Theatre #theatre#diversity#historythatmatters
