Whilst Theatrebloggers are being kept very busy going to see shows each week, it is a while since we have had a large outing to the theatre together.

A red carpet gala performance of a brand new musical was just the event to get us all excited.

Last Sunday we send several bloggers to the Adelphi Theatre in London to see Bumblescratch.

Bumblescratch is a new musical comedy written by Robert J. Sherman and directed by Stewart Nicholls, who also collaborated with Robbie Sherman on the critically acclaimed Love Birds and A Spoonful of Sherman.

Set in London during the Great Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of 1666, it is told from the perspective of a demented, lascivious plague rat named Melbourne Bumblescratch (Darren Day), who demonstrates his unique and twisted love affair with the ancient city through telling his marvellously gruesome tales.

As well as Darren Day, Bumblescratch also starred Michael Xavier, Jessica Martin and newcomer twelve-year-old Ilan Galkoff.

But what did our lovely bloggers think. Take a trip into their wonderful world of theatreblogging to find out.
