Next Interviewee....Mariano Ignacio

I now have the pleasure to interview Mariano Ignacio, a fellow theatre and Phantom fan.  He discussed how The Phantom of the Opera has changed his life and he hasn't looked since!

Please tell me how you got into musical theatre/theatre in general?

It began when my mother took me to see a musical comedy Sugar and El loco de Asis, a play about Francis Assisi, in Argentina.
What have been the highlights of your musical theatre journey?

Seeing The Phantom of the Opera in San Francisco, USA, back in the 1990s.  I had no idea about the musical beforehand but it was definitely a life changing experience!

What shows do you recommend that are currently playing in the West End or Regionally?

I would recommend Wicked, Les Miserables and National Theatre's War Horse, which are currently playing in the London's West End.

Are there any shows that you haven’t seen that you would like to?

I would like to see The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night Time, Mojo and Henry V, which we have booked to see during our time in London.  I look forward to seeing Miss Saigon on a future London trip.
What have been your theatrical highlights in 2013?

It was seeing The Audience starring Helen Mirren last year in London and seeing Casi Normales (Next to Normal).
What show are you planning to see next?  
We're planning to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Henry V during our time in London and in Buenos Aires it is likely to be Casi Normales.  There is a possibility that Mary Poppins will open in Buenos Aires.

May I take an opportunity to thank Mariano for taking part in this interview.  We wish him a great stay in London.  Please keep tuned for more interviews.
