London Let the sunshine in!

By spotogspindel | June 20, 2010

Covent Garden is celebrating it´s 180 year anniversary these days, with a big music-venue at Leichester Square. We past by twice, first the crew of We will rock you had the stage, and people were humming along to Another one bites the dust. Half an hour later, All that Jazz from Chicago was buzzing.

This evening, however, we chose to see HAIR, the hippie-love-musical by Ragni and Rado. It was the first musical I worked with back in 1996. It was an amateur-production, but a big production. This was back in the days, when I was on stage, singing and dancing as the political activist Sheila 🙂

I´ve never seen any other production of it (except for the film, which is completely different from the stage-version) and was thrilled I could see it here! This production came from New York, and it was a real feel-good, down-memory-lane- experience for me. Still remember lots of the lyrics, even the spoken text.

I´m not gonna go on chatting about all the impressions of the day, there were plenty! Why don´t you instead tell me what your favorite musical is?

    That’s a tough one – I really like musicals. I used to work in professional theater and get to see shows all the time for free. That was the life! I’ve always been fond of Evita. And Rent. I’ve listened to Les Miserables over and over again. It’s such a beautiful story and so right to be adapted as a musical. I think I would love Taymor’s version of the Lion King but I never did get to see it. Still on my wishlist of plays to see. Unfortunately I’ve never seen Hair and don’t really know the music from it. I’ll have to check it out – thanks!

    Hey, I really liked Oliver but I think I won’t tell you that because you will think I am a sissy
