I'm really looking forward to making the comparison between Simon & Summer at the London Palladium and Michael Praed & Connie Fisher in Edinburgh in January 2010 - although it's the same storyline/production, I expect the cast and stage set to bring something different. I still love Simon as The Captain for so many reasons, too many to mention.

My 1st report in will be for Celeste athough I'll admit my bias 6 months in advance, there'll be absolutely no reason to knock over Michael this time!

D'you know it's only just coming up to a year since we first found out he was going to do SOM and now it's all been over for ages and it seems it's all forgotten - no mention of the Summer/Simon version people only mention the upcoming Micheal/Connie one and her original one - what about gap in the middle! :( Which was nicely filled by Simon and others

The S.O.M tour began in Cardiff this evening so Michael's gang are a little excited, I can appreciate how they're feeling because we were in the same boat 12 months ago. Although I'm booked up to see it twice in Edinburgh January & February 2010, I'm still in a Captain Corky wonderland - Simon was absolutely amazing in that role. *cough* Naval Uniform!

Not a review but at our local Morrisons there is a poster for Sister Act at the Palladium, why didn't they advertise SOM there unsure.gif would have gone shopping more often :D

I can't believe how quickly time passes, next weekend will be a complete year since I first saw Simon play The Captain in Sound of Music (05/12/08) - great memories of fantastic people and a special nod & wink from Simon at his encore.

Need I say more about Naval uniform and hat? :wub:

Friday December 8th, 2008 - the 1st of 2 occasions that I saw Simon perform as 'the captain', continues to be a cherished memory. The past 3 years have passed so fast.
