James and Anne in the studio

When one of your friends is Cameron Mackintosh then I suppose anything's possible! My guest today, James Inverne from Reading, was asked to write - for The Times - the definitive piece about musicals - so he thought - why not be in one?

He rang his mate Cameron, and asked if he could be in Les Miserables for just one night. Ever the professional, Mr Mackintosh made him audition, and gave him a part in the chorus. He says it was the most brilliant experience.

I'm pea green with envy.

By the way, if you're interested in the concert that James is organising in Reading on Sunday the 16th December, these are the website addresses and phone numbers you'll need.
