Celebrating my birthday by trying to actually write about (or even mention) some of the theatre I see.
29 is a weird birthday - I keep thinking of ways to celebrate 30! - but it’s been a nice day. And on Monday I did fun stuff, and on Saturday I’m having a joint party with a BFF whose birthday is tomorrow. Yay :D
So yeah, Waitress
just arrived in London and I got preview tickets for a great rate from a colleague who gets group rates, so I went last week, with @januarium and @mokatiki. I hadn’t even known it was a film, I knew nothing about it besides that the soundtrack in particular had got rave reviews.
The songs are indeed great! YAY. Sara Bareilles is very hit-or-miss for me as a singer-songwriter, although I really love the songs I like, and I’m really glad these worked for me.
The musical itself was fun, despite some messy bits. ( Things I liked & things I didn’tCollapse )
So I can see it going either way for people, but I enjoyed it a lot.This was originally posted at https://lokifan.dreamwidth.org/377918.html. Comment wherever you like :)
