The What’s On Stage top 100 – and my top 10

When ‘What’s on Stage’ decided to publish their top 100 musicals of all time as voted for by the public I was very intrigued, for several reasons…

News today from What’s on Stage – I wanted to have my first experience o051c18_5fb53563bd574d28975cbd7301efba43.jpg_srz_p_180_135_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_jpg_srzf re-blogging today but apparently I can only reblogg wordpress stuff – fairnuff.
