Day 26 – London

Posted on July 25, 2014

Do you hear the people sing?

Today turned out to be another mega-musical day. A spontaneous booking for Miss Saigon’s matinee, because it was that good. Got some good tickets, so had lunch at an Indian restaurant nearby and then rushed to the theatre. The Indian was good, but greater things awaited.

We made it and took our seats. They were closer to the stage, to the left, but still great. The show was just as good as the first time.

After the show, we met up with the others and went back to that cafe with the amazing gelato for round two. Then it was off to see Les Mis.

As you would expect, it was awesome. Once again though, some people made me angry with their noise and talking. I’m not sure why Miss Saigon was perfectly fine in this respect (both times), yet these other productions have had bad audiences. Perhaps it’s the age demographic (a lot of oldies at Miss Saigon). Regardless, the show and production were great.

It seems though that the Miss Saigon production towers over every other show. So much so, that we will probably see it a third time on Saturday if we can get some decent tickets.

Tomorrow we don’t have much planned. We might just rest during the day from the constant theatre-going and then we’re going to see Matilda at night.

I haven’t been using (or taking) my camera around much in London, as I’ve spent most of my time seeing shows, but it’s the best thing to do here and we only have one chance to do it.
