On Music and Musicals

On Musicals

As a child, my dear mum and dad took me on bank holidays to see ‘shows’ in London. As a little boy I recall seeing Bells are Ringing at the Coliseum, Such is Life at the London Hippodrome and eventually Lionel Bart’s Oliver at the New Theatre. I was entranced. For a little unaware queer working class boy, I started to see visions of other worlds. I will look at some odd influential musicals from time to time.
