I start a new theatre adventure and I will go to Stratford-Upon-Avon this time!
I know the plays I’m going to see during my next UK holiday are much different between them.
Hobson’s Choice on Tuesday got Bryan Dick and Martin Shaw in its cast and I read it’s a very enjoyable show.
War Horse it’s a recording at the National Theatre Archive. I already saw that play live twice, but not with the 2012 cast, so I can’t miss the occasion and I got an appointment on Wednesday morning.
Then, I will get a train (I hope there will be not a delay) and I will go to Stratford-Upon-Avon taking three occasions at once: seeing two Shakespeare’s plays in his birthplace – first King Lear, then Cymbeline – on the year of his 400th anniversary, with the bonus of Oliver Johnstone and Antony Sher in the cast, plus I have great expectations on Paapa Essiedu and Bethan Cullinane. And I will visit the city, of course!
Back to London, I thought it would be cool to see something at the Open Air Theatre, finally, so I’ve booked for Pride And Prejudice 10 September matinee, noticing that I will see Mari Izzard on stage again, after Dream 2016.
I got one free night on Saturday 10 September, so I was thinking about which play I could see then. I was thinking to see Breakfast At Tiffany’s, when a Twitter friend suggested me Groundhog Day at the Old Vic Theatre. The new musical is getting good reviews from the previews, so I have great expectations on it. I already knew that Oppenheimer‘s actor Andrew Langtree was going to do it, but for a moment it was out of my mind. I’m glad I got a ticket.
I’ll post a blog about it.
