I went to another show in London yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed it – 42nd Street at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
I’ve been to a lot of the London shows in the last few years, but this one I would recommend as the best and most spectacular. If someone from overseas or out of town asks you which show to go and see, well I’d say this one, it won’t disappoint.
I like going to these things without looking them up too much in advance, or looking at the promotional photos, so I can enjoy being surprised, and I’m so glad I did that this time.
I don’t want to say too much about the scenes and staging I really enjoyed, so it doesn’t ruin someone else’s surprise, but some things really ‘wowed’ me and put a smile on my face. Absolutely fantastic dancing, big cast, beautiful costumes and nice staging ideas.
Also, I wondered how many songs I might recognise and it came to five, more than I’d expected. Fantastic live ‘big band’ style orchestra, wonderful sound.
Went a bit mad at the end and bought the programme, the mug, the CD and the fridge magnet!
