Reasons for trip

The Bodyguard Musical. We paid £26 each for a ticket in the upper circle on Thursday 2nd May for the 7.30pm show with Saga theatre ticket site. The Adelphi Theatre which is on the Strand is a large theatre and had plenty of empty seats in the upper circle. The show although full of amazing songs is very slow in the first half it needs a bit more light hearted dancing. I did wonder if it was ever going to liven up. The second half was much better with more lively scenes and a generally faster pace. The final `I Will Always Love You` was extremely emotional. The stars were exceptional and the encore stage song `I Wanna Dance With Someone` had everyone standing and singing. That is exactly what a good musical should do. Worth going to see just don`t pay £70 or £80 to do so. While walking from Oxford Street to the theatre we pasted Leicester Square and saw a large crowd. What was that all about then? The Premier of Star Trek no less. A large clock with bells and figures had been erected just outside the cinema and looked pretty impressive. Three very posh cars slide into the road outside and stopped by a red carpet leading into the cinema. Out came the star studded cast but taking a photo of them was impossible a very stern security guard pushed us on shouting at everyone to move. I felt a little in need of a bodyguard myself. I hoped everyone had a nice time and that the over zealous security guard missed his train home.
