In Which I Tentatively Mention Christmas for the First Time This Year

We have to be careful with our first mention of the C word at work.

People can get very upset if you start talking about the festive period too soon.

And I have to say, I'm fairly sure mid-late September *is* too soon.

But if you're a theatre show, and you've been in negotiations and rehearsals for a while, and are now looking to start selling tickets for your big seasonal show, there comes a point when you need to start shouting about it. Otherwise, no one's going to know you're putting on a panto!
So here's this week's Theatre News, with references to London's Little Opera House, an exciting new musical, and those Christmassy shows
I'm loving the news about the Pet Shop Boys working on My Dad's A Birdman at the Young Vic. It sounds brilliant, and I can imagine it'll be a show that can, ahem, fly for many years to come.
