Family Urbani went out on Monday night,
We went to
The Barbican in London to see
The Royal Shakespeare Company perform
I booked the tickets back in July
and they sold out very quickly -
possibly (probably!) because the lead role
was played by David Tennant.
Wow, what a production!
I didn't know the plot of this play, prior to
going, but had no difficulty following it.
Mr Tennant's characterisation of Richard II
was wonderfully effeminate, with his
beautiful clothes, polished nails and
further enhanced by his long, flowing locks!
The acting from the whole cast was
outstanding, and both humour and pathos
was brilliantly portrayed.
I hadn't been to the Barbican before
and I really liked the wide, open stage and
comfortable, spacious seating.
We all enjoyed the play
(although Luke was suffering a bit from a
head cold and might have nodded
off for a while) and we were quick to join
the standing ovation at the end.
My night with David Tennant -
shared with quite a few other people ;)
Thank you for your advice regarding my
Soul Food/Life Book dilemma.
I finally made my decision this morning
- and signed up for both!
Grant encouraged me to do both,
in spite of, or maybe because of,
the fact that he won't see much of me
over the next year because I'll be
so busy arting in the conservatory.
Maybe he's looking forward to the peace
and quiet and unhindered viewing of
football on the tv!
Wishing you all a
happy and healthy 2014!
