Black Friday 2016 (25 November) lived up to its name after a power surge plunged the West End into darkness. Several shows - including musicals ALADDIN, LES MISERABLES, JERSEY BOYS and THRILLER LIVE - had to be cancelled and many more were delayed. We’re rounded up some of our fave tweets - with videos, photos and other reactions - showing how #StageFaves were affected on the night...

We tried to limit our choices to just ten but we just couldn't, even after we separated out the kids' excellent tweets from the show account into a second blog. Opening night of SCHOOL OF ROCK just looked like too much fun. So here are top twenty (ish) tweets that encapsulate the night - from the cast and others working on the show, from celebs, from other punters in the audience and from the Lord himself, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Are you in the band on Twitter?

These kids rule the school. They know how to stick it to the man. They can rock on all night... And so, on opening night, the official SCHOOL OF ROCK social media accounts were handed over to young 'band members' including Isabelle and Jobe, who did a phenomenal job spotting the celebs on the red carpet. Watch what they got up and with who (including Andrew Lloyd Webber, Julian Fellowes, director Laurence Connor, Arlene Phillips, Jimmy Carr, Jodie Kidd and Myleene Klass in that dress)...

Slightly belated - as 8 November 2016 will go down in the history books for other reasons thanks to Donald Trump - we've rounded up our favourite fan and #StageFaves tweets from Tuesday's opening of LAZARUS. The late David Bowie's musical, with a book by Enda Walsh and direction by Ivo van Hove, got its London premiere this week at King's Cross Theatre after its debut earlier this year in New York. We think these ten #LazarusMusical tweets from the last few days really capture how special an occasion it was...
