A little bird told me that this is your 900th blog!

On the basis of one of your very early ones I booked to see War of the Worlds but such is the demand that I won't see it until December by which time you'll probably have written your 1,000th...Keep up the good work!

Hi again Ian,

Thanks for your good wishes. I probably will have passed the 1000 mark by December at the rate I'm going with all the news that's breaking about musical theatre!

Hope you enjoy War of the Worlds. It promises to be very spectacular.
