We have both sets of parentals coming over later this year for holiday, and want to take them out to the theatre (well, technically only Matt's as they're sticking around longer). But there's always so much going on in London that I can't decide what they should go see.

Last two times Matt's folks were here, they saw 'Kiss Me Kate', and 'We Will Rock You', so I'm thinking along the lines of lighter theatrical entertainment compared to something Shakespearean or like 'War Horse' or opera.

So help me out - vote in the poll! Or make a suggestion!

Poll #1423726 Parentals' visit - theatrical options

What musical/play/theatrical masterpiece do you reckon would be good?

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Jersey Boys
Mamma Mia!
The 39 Steps
Something better! (suggestion below)

What else would you recommend?

Awww, icon love! jodean!!!

I'll keep an eye out for cheaper deals to 'Priscilla' for you, as you definitely have to see it. It's brilliantly done.

I wanted to see Rowan's run during 'Oliver!' but he sold out really quick. So still want to go see it with Omid Djalili.

OMG, how funny is 'Ave Q'! I love the puppets! And the songs! You can't lose with "The internet is for porn" now can you?! LOL

I love Jo - Alona rocks my world!!!

That'd be cool! I look at the tkts site now and again and it never seems to be ok.... it's so bloody expensive!! Annoys me how they double the prices for London - the Take That Musical was £20ish in Manchester, in London it was more like £50!!

I loved Ave Q! It was like watching sesame street but with rude puppets LOL! I was like 'OMG they can't do that with puppets'!!! they should get Smile Time Angel and Spike on there for a guest appearance ;)

I wish they'd kept Jo on as a character on Spn. There was a story to be intertwined there! I remember reading some great Jo fanfic way back. Wish I'd tagged them!

PuppetAngel was the cutest thing ever!!!

I know! I didn't know whether to cover my eyes and spare my memories of Sesame St. But it was too funny not to!

I got so annoyed with all the bitching that went on with the 'fans' over Jo! she could have been an awesome character, by far the best female on the show! I remember Alona being announced for Asylum, everyone was whinging cos they hated Jo, then after the con everyone suddenly loved her... grrrr!!

I'm glad I didn't go watch it with my parents LOL!

I'm glad in a way that I don't watch any Spn communities or am on any boards/forums. I love the show, and the boys, but have been keeping myself away from that, which is just as well as all the audience criticism and negativy can really annoy me.

I think Jo was a great character and have much Alona-love!

I don't bother with the fandom at all, other than going to SPN conventions! The bitching about poor Alona was on the convention forum and that's how I found out about it, I was so annoyed!!
