That's a fascinating list of shows, theatre and films you've got there. And well up to date, too.
I haven't been to the theatre as much this year what with moving down here and finding out all the new places to go, but still managed to see:-

The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain at Theatre Royal
Vampires Rock at Theatre Royal
Sister Act
Suddenly at Home both at the Duchess Theatre Long Eaton
Haven't been to the cinema this year but have seen Deadpool and Star Trek 3 on DVD at Terri's house
And I am on book 150 as we speak.

I am really looking forward to 2017 as there is a plethora of places to go to see shows, concerts, films, plays etc etc around here - in fact a superabundance of riches that I intend to take more advantage of.
