Mary

Lucky you! I tried to get tickets for this show when I was in London last month, but was not successful.

Cornflower

Oh, what a pity, Mary!
I can't remember exactly when we booked but it was ages ago.

Another Mary who is so envious! I was at the Festival Hall last night and saw people wandering across the bridge clutching their programmes - it was a lovely concert but I'd have swapped in a jiffy!

Cornflower

I should have written a longer post to give you more of a flavour, in that case!
Suffice to say, it felt very contemporary, despite being set in the '70s, as you'll know; it was expertly staged, very slickly done, and two hours (without an interval) passed in what seemed like a fraction of that time. It was certainly an experience.

I saw Ivo van Hove's Hedda Gabler last week - and that was very different - but it was the touring cast and seemed to be missing something; at least it wasn't as good as it sounded from the original reviews.
Did you go last night? We might have walked past each other on the South Bank - it was a very chilly walk across the bridge! Hope you managed to take a peep in the Hayward. That photography exhibition is terrific.

Cornflower

Monday night, Mary, and yes, the walk across the bridge was very chilly!
Didn't get to the Hayward - we had grand plans to see the Modigliani at Tate Modern and go from there to the theatre, but in the end we decided on a more relaxed timetable, which was probably wise.

Claire

Oh great, I love the National Theatre, the plays, the restaurant and always such a buzz in the bars before the performances. We've luckily got tickets for Mary Stuart at the Duke of York's next month. Really looking forward to that.

Cornflower

That should be wonderful, Claire!
