My personal highlight from the National Theatre's "50 years on stage" celebration, screened live from the National Theatre onto BBC2 last night (Saturday 2 November), was Andrew Scott in Angels in America.

I was at the Preview performance on Friday 1 November and when I saw Andrew in that scene, he made my heart stop dead.

When I saw the scene again on TV last night, Andrew broke my heart.

My one biggest theatre regret is that I never saw the National Theatre's production of Angels in America and I have not yet seen the play to date. I wish the National would put it on again (fingers crossed!).
