Cameron Mackintosh, our favourite producer/copyright holder in the theatre world, came out with an announcement yesterday that he wanted understudies in his shows to refrain from posting on social media about when they'd be on, and that making those announcements was the job of the production.

School team decided today and will be seeking permission tomorrow to do Les Mis, and the debate has already come up of "but there are prostitutes and a pimp".

I've fought for our Mme T to say "arse" with the he argument that I said it in Singin in the Rain, and we did My Fair Lady a few years ago and Eliza says it then, so that's not being changed, but loads of other lyrics are being tweaked.
