Wicked

Having settled into nice easy comfortable surroundings of a decent hostel, the remainder of the day was spent doing ….stuff.

Took two goes at finding a SIM card….first one didn’t have international roaming. 

Wandered.

Walked.

Looked at all the pretty things in Harrods. (and yes that is a double entendre)

Got back to hostel to allow what I thought was plenty of time to get to Victoria Station so I could goto ‘Wicked’ the musical.

Turns out however, that the London Underground had other plans.  Thanks to a signal fault on the circle line, the whole tube network was in chaos.

Which meant I had to walk jog briskly all the way to Victoria.  Made it with ten minutes to spare – but was a sweaty mess.

Wicked was amazing.  I missed seeing it in New York last year, but am glad I got to see it here.  It only opened last week so I was lucky to get seats.

I suspect that it was a little wobbly in terms of being a new cast and all because it wasn’t as tight as what I would expect from a professional show.  I think that maybe it would have been better to see it on Broadway but none-the-less, the staging, sets, special effects, music, overall atmosphere made up for it.

Literally nearly bumped into Zach Braff from Scrubs during interval (I should watch where I am walking).

Tube network still in chaos after show so walked all the way home.

When I see funky shows such as this I sometimes wonder if I am really doing anyone a favour by remaining in my (second) chosen profession.

    You bastard! If I had bumpe into Zach Braff, I would have spent the rest of the night talking to him. I would have maybe even kissed him just to say that I had!

    **Mod Note** Now why didn’t I think of that?  Probably because I was sweaty and looking like an all-so-ran having run from High St Kensington to Victoria Station (Stupid Lunderground).  I note interestingly that ZB has a new movie coming out.
