Looking for a Show
Currently in central London - kids are on vacation but David has to work, and our house is being painted inside. So we thought we'd spent a couple of nights in London for a short commute and more time together and less paint smell.
Looking at the London theatre shows going on tonight in the West End, there are a quite a number of choices that sound interesting to me.
I think Shadowlands would be too sad for the children, who hate tragedies (I remember crying a lot at the movie about 14 years ago in New Hampshire), and The Mousetrap might be too tense for Emily (and David and I have already seen it in London, years ago). Gone with the Wind doesn't start its run until April, but anyway, the kids might have found it too unhappy. Phantom of the Opera and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat are both sold out for the next four nights. I think I would have gone for the latter, otherwise.
The fact remains that I can't decide amongst Fiddler on the Roof, Stomp, The Sound of Music, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Lord of the Rings, and The Lion King.
What to choose? Then again, I feel like I am coming down with the cold Jason had recently. We'll see how much energy I have to roam London tonight. I'll let you know if we see a show and what we thought of it.
