Expecting an overnight stay in London, I'd already booked and paid for a hotel, so we decided to go and make use of the room. We set off for London and found ourselves in a traffic jam. We used this time to play silly in-car games and generally make the most of each other's company. I enjoyed that. Then we arrived in London. London's traffic wasn't too bad and we found somewhere to park. Then it was a short tube hop to the hotel, which was near Euston. We threw our stuff in the room, avoided getting sucked into a TV programme about TV makeover programmes, and then zoomed off to Leicester Square. We found a cheap theatre tickets booth and bought tickets for The Woman in White. I had a post-it note on my desk with a list of musicals on it that I wanted to see or see again. Over the course of our relationship, we've done most of the items on that list. Anyway, this was a member of the list and we headed towards the theatre.
On the way, we grabbed a sandwich, having not had chance for anything to eat over the course of the rest of the day. Well, there was a bit of sandwich at lunchtime, but nothing substantial.
The show was quite good. The performances seemed relatively flat and the show didn't seem to have any stand-out show-stopping songs. It was more a landscape of feelings, which was nice enough, but not mind-blowing. Still, the sets were good. They were computer generated and projected onto moving screens around the stage. Some scenes really looked good as a result, especially when they rotated the stage in a church scene and we got a 360 degree view of everything in and around the church. However, a lot of this felt like more gimmick and less substance.
Again, we enjoyed the show.
After the show, bed. There was a little time for a morsel of pizza at Leicester Square, but tiredness was summoning us to a place where one could rest.
