It's been a hell of a West End opening for COME FROM AWAY! The Broadway transfer flew into London after a run in Ireland and now it's nominated an astonishing NINE TIMES!!!

Dozens of musicals hit London every year but few receive the kind of devoted following of Half A Sixpence! Back in 2017, Charlie Stemp and the cast popped by West End Live to treat punters to a little taste of what they would see if they came to the show. We dare you not to grin the whole way through!

As any true HAMILTON fan will know, the soundtrack is so good it's hard to choose a top track and our favourites can change with the day! So we reckon MsMojo must have had a tough time picking their Top 10. But choose they did and our #HamiltonHumpDay is this video countdown...

They had big voices and even bigger hair! CHESS was a huge hit in the 80's and one of the last shows of its time to have such huge crossover appeal!

It doesn't matter where you're from, if you're a fan of musical theatre you've heard of RENT! The gritty, important and incredibly poignant show defined a generation and changed Broadway forever. This Friday we're taking you back to 1996 when the original Broadway cast performed at the Tony Awards. This is certainly a piece of Musical Theatre for the history books...

Is there a bigger American TV tradition than Saturday Night Live!? The show not only brings the funny every week, it peppers in plenty of sketches for the Musical Theatre geek! It's been a few years now since this sketch, but we think it's as funny as ever. From the Phantom trying to run the meeting to Elphaba lamenting her narrow casting bracket, this is worth a watch for any musical geek!

Check out Rosalie absolutely nailing "Being Alive"...
