heart-wrenching emotion it would have to be Moulin

No, it's my dream to see Phantom of the Opera in the

Would love to see Matilda as I love Tim Minchin and
Roald Dahl and think they will make a great combination.

Christ Superstar – there's something magical about a live
performance which can't be beaten.

6.  What’s your favourite song out of a musical?

Ooh another toughie – you're pulling no punches! For
tingles down the spine it would have to be All I Ask of
You from Phantom

For sheer versatility it would have to be Julie Andrews

moved and surprised me - he made me like Judas!

I could quite happily listen to Moulin Rouge all day long!

12. Take your favourite Musical and put together your own dream cast.

Winona Ryder as Rizzo
Bradley Cooper as Kenickie

Andrew Lloyd Webber for all of the fantastic musicals he has helped to create  and Tim Minchin – his way with
words is just phenomenal.

Moulin Rouge and Phantom of the Opera – a sad love
story always moves me.
