February will be filled with....

Fun, Friends, Thighs & Theatre!!!..... after a work filled January, I am determined to work a little less and enjoy a little more in February. Looking at my calendar that's not going to be too difficult and it will involve lots of the mentioned!
I have 4 trips to the theatre booked, birthdays & parties with friends, and the 6 nations rugby all to look forward to which will be lots of fun!!....

One of my theatre trips was to the lovely quaint Duchess Theatre at the back of Covent garden near Aldwych to see the heart wrenching Love Story. A beautiful musical bought to London and produced by Michael Ball. Its very understated, incredibly acted and an emotional joy to watch. Used to lots of razzamatazz in musicals this completely bucks the trend and adopts the "less is more approach". It is accompanied by a chamber orchestra which remains on stage throughout as does the 2 lead characters (other than very quick costume changes). Beautifully acted and not a dry eye in the house at the end... you completely forget that it's not real... only on until end of feb but worth a visit... enjoy ( but remember to take a hankie!)
