I’ve been thinking about musicals a bit today. Mid afternoon I suddenly remembered that tickets had gone on sale for the tour of The Band – the new musical that features songs by Take That and includes the boyband put together on Let It Shine on the BBC. I logged on and managed to get tickets for me and my mom to see it next year in Birmingham.
While I was there I checked on the availability of tickets for the touring production of The Addams Family this summer. I found out about it when Carrie Hope Fletcher announced she was going to be playing Wednesday in this production. Before that I hadn’t actually heard of the show but a friend who knows plenty about musical theatre speaks highly of the score, and has assured my meagre knowledge of the screen versions of The Addams Family won’t be an issue. I’m still deciding between dates but am glad to see I’ll be able to get sorted with a ticket for it.
A couple of months ago Carrie posted this video, an updated version of her singing Pulled from the show (apparently there’s an older version too on her channel). Based on this I’m really looking forward to seeing her Wednesday on stage.
