Again, with few choices at the half-price booth - we plumped for "Kinky Boots" with only a very rough idea of the plot - and no idea what to expect. This was a surprise, and in a great way! What a fantastic show! The story is fun, the songs are catchy, the cast play their parts so, so well ! We loved it - smiled all night - and have already booked to see it again when it comes through Singapore in November.
There are very few matinees at a good price - so, with limited choice, and a friend of Shanhong's joining us - we plumped for Motown - the Musical. It tells the tale - and has some good musical numbers - but was nothing special....
Our last few nights in the UK were back in London and gave us a chance to see a couple more shows. One of the newest, having just opened was "The King and I" - and it lived up to the hype!
This was a moment of madness! Having spotted a poster while walking around town, and discovering a) tickets were VERY cheap and b) the theatre was off the same main road as our hotel, we booked to go and see Billy Elliot, in Hungarian!
The final show on this initial London visit was 42nd Street. Unfortunately, not one we enjoyed. If you are into tap - it has its moments, but unfortunately, nothing else!
Still enjoying London Theatre, after a morning at Hillsong Church, we went to see a Matinee performance of "Brief Encounter" held in a cinema. Mixing live theatre with music (the actors playing all the instruments themselves), and with cinema effects too, this was surprisingly good!
