Another (thankfully) rare foray by me into stage-musical territory. Lucky for you, I don't like that many of them, but this one's a gem I thought we ought to have in the Guide.

I can never forget my glee as a kid singing the words in school:

'Why did the kids pour jam on the cat?
Raspberry jam all over the cat?'

Guide-worthy musical indeed - you can add the link to 42! A19229763

I was a bit of a musical fan for a time, but this isn't one I'd come across, so I learned a lot from the Entry smiley - ok

My only minor suggestion for improvement would be if you mention at the start that Tom Jones was the playwright, to avoid confusion with other people called Tom Jones - was Harvey Schmidt also a playwright, or more responsible for the music part of the musical?

smiley - ok

Harvey Schmidt was the composer. smiley - smiley I'll make that clear, and clear up 'Tom Jones' in case anybody's around who thinks there's only one Tom Jones - that wouldn't be unusual. smiley - angel

Thanks for the 42 link! smiley - smiley
