The Snarkly Three: Special Back In Town Edition

1. Like, omigod, what a bummer
Legally Blonde in London really did not "cut the mustard," in the sense that we think we actually lost the will to live multiple times during the show, plus 2 badly needed sips of Diet Pepsi at intermission cost one-pound-eighty, or $37 American. On the other hand, the lead, Sheridan Smith, was a powerhouse, and we ended up chatting with her at the stage door afterwards, AND she liked our earrings.

And .... okay, so if we are to be totally, brutally honest here, wewerekindofsecretlyreallynotsothrilledwiththeperformanceofourbelovedMr.Davison, but we can get into all that another time, and meanwhile enjoy his performance in this recent video so kindly posted in the comments the other day by faithful reader Rob. (Thanks!)

2. Speaking of plays: Stuff White People Like: Plays
Now, for a change of pace, read some comedy I don't write. It's the third paragraph that really spoke to me.

3. I don't really have a third one
So go watch Fozzie Bear and Rowlf play some Percy Grainger. Go! It is time well spent.

Honest assessment, and I would call the stage-door chat a huge win. It's been years since I've been to a play, since ticket prices are now up to 150% of the GNP of Rhode Island...

Well, this wasn't so bad. 33 pounds, 23 if you don't mind a safety rail directly in front of your personal face.
