Big Sparkly Choo Choo Musical of Doom

Went and say Starlight Express tonight at the New Wimbledon Theater. Any play with a black man in a pink/blue/silver mohawk doing spinny circles on stage in his rollerskates and sparkly metallic blue costume is a total winner in my book. "I am electric - feel my attraction./ Feel my magnetism - you will agree/ I am electric - I have the contact./ I am electric - the future is me." I mean, what is not to like about that? Hip hop boys, girls skating in garter belts, guys doing backflips on rollerblades, and three three-D movies in the middle (okay, that should have been a race on a ramp in the audience, but I love 3-D stuff so I was still happy about it) - I felt like I was 12 years old again. That part of me that still unironically likes 80s music was tickled pink tonight.

The teenagers in the audience who talked all the way through like they were at a rock show ... that I could have lived without. But I went with shadowdaddy and wechsler and it did rather make up for a lot, and we made it home at 10:30, so the night was on the whole a big win. But work has me worn down and I feel like in the battle of Cowgirl versus London I am losing as I really just want to stay home tomorrow. On the other hand, it's WORK that's made me tired, and that's just the same as it was back home.

Did they do the movies, or did they have ramps?

It was so unashamedly 80s. I laughed my head off.

I saw Starlight back-in-the-day (i.e. when I was about 12) when it was on somewhere in central London & loved it as well :-)

If you're tired, stay home! You live here now; there's no need to burn yourself out doing everything all at once. It's officially Hibernation Time (i.e. the 2 months around the shortest day) & therefore spending a lot of time doing sod all is not only sensible but practically mandated.

I loved that show when I was a little kid. Musicals, rollerskakes, funky-coloured hair and costumes, and electricity? Indeed.

Yeah, I haven't changed that much. :)
