So long absence again. Have been up to a lot and not a lot, as per usual. ;)
I see only three signed in guests visited my journal the last month, whoops, it is looking a bit bare.
Talking about bears, oh we weren't? "There's a bear in there, and a chair as well..."
Playschool? Simon Burke
! I was so
pleased on Saturday I got the final last, ever last for this season cheapest price ticket to Melbourne production of La Cage Aux Folle
s! I saw the show (final show of their run) last night! Oh it was fun! Simon was brilliant as expected and I did love Todd's character acting. I'm a little used to John Barrowman's versions of the songs so I don't want to compare their singing. It was FIVE
years in the making, waiting, hoping. For that to happen. SO glad Simon was cast. Anyone with me back then when I fangirled over Barrowman AND Burke being in the same musical together? Here
is the post to refresh old memories. Now I just need to see John Barrowman perform something live, wouldn't that be fun! Seeing Rhonda Burchmore and Gary Sweet is always a bit of fun too. Only unfortunate part was I couldn't organise to go to an earlier performance date and do stage door to meet the cast in person, being last night and all they probably had cast party wraps.
I ended up browsing through Youtube videos post show, listening to Barrowman's songs again. The Doctor & I! I forgot about that song, hadn't heard it since '10. But so great, know I've seen Wicked for the first time this year too.
Tonight I saw an advanced screening of the movie The Imitation Game. It was a lot funnier than I expected, and do recommend.
