    Wonderful stuff - and at an affordable price. I missed sharing hte excitement with the live audience, but loved the fact I could see everything. Thank you to organisers and dancers and. Just two thoughts: could we have cast list please? Perhaps at the end of the broadcast? And, why were there two technical hitches (Act II and Act III, we could hear the music, but lost the picture, for several minutes on both occasions. The box had to be disconnected and restarted)
