Just me talking about costume-y kind of stuff
Our first day in London after a nine hour flight, I had been up more than 24 hours. Sylvan and I couldn't sleep on the plane. We left Waco at 12:30 on my birthday and arrived in London the next day at 9:30 am. We watched King Charles' coronation on the TV at the Travelodge hotel, while we were checking in and storing our luggage. We ate lunch at an Asian Fusion place that was too expensive and crowded and that charged us for water. It was pouring down rain and we got soaked walking through Trafalgar Square. It felt great at first after being so hot on the bus and the plane, but then it got very cold once I was soaked through. There were lots of bobbies and protestors. They had blocked off much of the street to prevent any vandalism to the statue of Admiral Nelson. Lots of signs saying, "not my king". Had enough time to go back to the hotel and take a hot shower before the show. Kelly had planned well and Six was the shortest of all the shows with no intermission so we got back to the hotel early and finally got a good night's sleep.
Vaudeville Theatre - 404 Strand, London
My View of the Stage
We were on the very last row of the very last balcony. My advice for next time is to buy a pair of really good opera glasses and remember to pack them. The old theatres have them on the back of all the balcony seats but you have to have a pound coin to use them.
I paid for the nice program with all the photos, but they kindly also gave us a QR code.
During the encore, they told us we could take photos, so I did.
