Broadway legend Ann Reinking has sadly passed away at the age of 71. She was part of the original Chicago broadway cast and over the years spent a lot of time working on the show, which I must add is my all time favourite.
Rest in peace to a true musical theatre legend who you might know from films All That Jazz (1979) and Annie (1982). Especially considering this blog is named Let’s Go To The Movies and that song is performed by Reinking in the film.
If you are in need of something to make you feel very happy but also possibly cry then here we have a a truly amazing collaboration featuring an incredible 23 West End actresses who have been in Wicked as Elphaba or Glinda.
In support of the MAD Trust which works with the theatre community to fight against AIDS and HIV.
I know that Musical Moments is usually a Monday feature but considering the current world pandemic due to the Coronavirus I felt as though we need more Musical Moments!
I’ve had this song in my head most of the week “For Now” as I think thats important to remember that this pandemic is only for now and we will see better days! Also if you want more Avenue Q I really recommend watching other songs from the show.
The best thing about seeing it on stage is that they often change the final “For Now” to someone who is currently relevant in the country your in!

I am going to see Les Miserables for the second time at the Theatre tonight having seen it in the West End a few years back. I am really looking forward to it as the UK Tour is the new production and will be starting in the West End later this year after the theatre has been refurbished.
One Day More is one of the most incredible songs so I thought for todays musical moment it would be the version from the 10th anniversary concert show!
I have been a huge fan of John Barrowman for years now due to his musical theatre background. Luckily for me that because he has been in Doctor Who, therefore is at so many different cons! He is fabulous, had to use that word! Hugs everyone and is a top guest! I was lucky to see his Fabulous show a few months back now.
