There are two things coming up I want to see, and would like to encourage friends to come see with me. I'm not quite at "buy a ticket to something fun" today, but I'd like to get there.  Please comment / message / email me if you're interested in coming too, ideally by this weekend.

Show one:
The Southwark Playhouse is putting on Working, a musical with songs by "Craig Carnelia, Micki Grant, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mary Rodgers & Susan Birkenhead, Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor". So obviously Lin-Manuel's contribution is among lots of other people's, but the musical blurb itself sounds interesting: based on a book of "interviews with the American workforce" and "a strikingly dynamic and contemporary look at what it is to work and what it is to be a musical".  Also I like the theatre's access information page which seems a better effort than most and would therefore like to Turn Up And Support This Kind Of Thing.

I'm looking at going to the 3pm show on Saturday 10th June.  This is both my least-busy Saturday during the run, and immediately after my exams.  Tickets £25 / £20.

Show two:
There is a touring professional production of Bring It On, the cheerleader musical, which I saw a local amateur production of recently. I am considering either:
  • 2:30pm show on Saturday 23rd September, at the Milton Keynes Theatre
  • 2:30pm show on Saturday 14th October, at the New Wimbledon Theatre
Both of them are do-able as a day trip from Cambridge by public transport.  I lean slightly toward the Wimbledon one because that's by train not coach, but I could be persuadable to either.  (Both is probably overambitious).  Tickets are between £43 and £57.50, plus a transaction fee (because of course there is).

Also, I'm looking longingly at an amateur production of In The Heights in Birmingham 14-15 July, but as I'm running a child's birthday party on 16th July I don't think it's going to happen.

(yes, I am mildly obsessive about Seeing All The Things related to Lin-Manuel Miranda, but I also kind of like the idea of aspiring to a lifestyle of travelling the country seeing musicals ...)

I would be up for both of these, and would prefer the London show of Bring It On, but can do MK without too much difficulty.

Shiny, thank you for organising. Mild preference for front stalls, but anywhere is fine if other people are more budget-conscious than me.

Fab. Let me know how much I owe you and how best to get it to you (email is sebastian@wildeabandon.org if you want to send bank details in a slightly less public forum)

Yes to Bring It On, London for preference but MK is OK too.

(I can't make Working fit into my life, I don't think, but it sounds interesting.)

I'm happy with whatever your preference is; there doesn't seem to be much difference in prices.

I'm about to go on holiday for a week; meet up with you at some point after that for book-and-money exchange? (or I can transfer you money and we can just do book exchange, if you prefer)

I finally got to watch Moana today. I had watched some of the songs on YouTube but now I see how they all fit together. My beloved watched it, enjoyed it and suddenly recognised LMM's voice in the credits!

I recognised that but my beloved didn't 😀
