In the evening, we went to the Strand, popping out of the tub at Piccadilly Circus, only a short stroll from the Adelphi Theatre, from which I had bought two tickets for “Chicago”, which has been playing there for eight years. Catchy tunes, and some good lines, delivered by an orchestra who seemed to be playing simply for the sheer joy of the music, and first class singers who didn’t fluff a note – and danced rather well too. Even the audience was good – mostly tourists who don’t see much theatre, and were ready for a good time and generous with the applause. I love the West End.
