Reasons for trip

There is just no way I have the verbal capacity to describe this live show ~ it was utterly stupendous, breathtaking, marvellous – almost overwhelming. From the very first moment the curtain went up and the action burst onto your senses (from all directions) there was colour, sound, energy. The dancers were awesome, the singers just gorgeous and the design of the costumes, scenery, special effects was out of this world. This is not theatre as we used to know it, but a whole new generation of theatre experience.

Perhaps the biggest give-away as to the wondrousness of it all is that for two-and-a-half hours no one became wriggly or unsettled ~ over an age-range of sixty years, we were all spell-bound.

For us this was a special birthday visit ~ and for five of us quite a cost investment. But worth every single penny and then some. I want to go and see it again, right away, to catch some of the things I couldn’t quite take in first time around.

The Lyceum Theatre was very much a London theatre, there were booster cushions for the boys, ice cream for the interval, a special deal on glasses of prosecco for the wine-choosers, and a selection of beers for the beer-chooser. And, big bonus, none of the desperately long queues for the loo you usually encounter.

Not sure what else I should say, surely no need to mention the plot, as I think by now it counts as a classic. But the combination of writers, directors, and performers have ensured that this is a theatre experience to be remembering and talking about for years to come.
