What shows are playing in London...
Hey!!! It's a new week!!
This month is flying by!
This past weekend was non-stop.
Friday night we had our threesome dinner to celebrate Kelsey's 10th Birthday.
Then yesterday, we had our first Saturday at the barn for the kids weekly riding day, which led into an evening dinner celebration to commemorate a successful summer of riding at Dream Come True.
And lastly, today was Kelsey's official birthday party, which we had at Adventureland with a number of the girls' best buds from the barn.
The girls had a blast!! And, honestly, so did I - going on many of the rides and eating yummy stuff!
I love roller coasters and loved going on Turbulance. The only problem is that my favorite Disney World cap flew right off my head!! And it hit Gianna in her head as it flew off.
We were hysterical laughing when the ride ended!!
I have to say, it was good to finally get home, take a shower, as it was hot, humid and sticky at the amusement park.
I did a quick turn around with making the girls dinner, feeding Punkin and getting their lunch prepared for today when they head back to school.
Then I headed up the street to get a quick manicure. My nails were truly atrocious - chipped, peeling and breaking. So, I'm happy to say, I now have human looking fingernails once again!!
So, here we are - Monday again - and this is the day we have traditionally chatted about great entertainment.
Well, with our trip to London this Spring, it dawned on me - aside from iconic sites like Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and The London Eye as well as afternoon tea (both of which are on our itinerary), I needed to also consider getting something on the agenda for which London is also well known - THEATRE!!
I haven't even discussed this yet with my cuz yet, so this will be the first she is hearing about my desire to plan this into our schedule. (whatta ya say cuz?)
With that said, here are a few of the shows gracing the London stages while we will be in this great city next April.
The Lion King
Me and my girls have not as yet had the pleasure of seeing this show here in New York, and it is probably the one to which, we will get tickets.
The closest we have come to seeing the stage version of this Disney musical is the short version presented in Animal Kingdom in Disney World.
And considering how much we loved it, this would be a winner for us!
But here are some others playing in London as well:
Aladdin, Wicked, Beautiful, Motown The Musical and Jersey Boys, we have already had the pleasure of experiencing here in New York and/or Boston, so I would like to see something we haven't as yet seen.
Les Miserables, I have seen and I'm thinking this show might be a bit sophisticated for a ten and twelve year old (at least my two).
Mamma Mia, which I think they would enjoy and The Phantom of the Opera, which I'm not sure if they would appreciate, I've both seen.
Sunny Afternoon featuring the Music of The Kinks - I really don't think the kids would be into, though it's been critically acclaimed.
The Girls, is the true story of the Yorkshire Calendar Girls, a group of ordinary ladies who achieved something extraordinary. Not sure what they achieved lol so I'd have to find out before I decided on this one.
The Curious Incident of the Dog is told from the point of view of a child with behavioural difficulties, the intriguing tale begins with Christopher standing beside Mrs. Shears' dead dog, which has been speared by a garden fork. Right there, no way with the kids.
Matilda the Musical tells the tale of an extraordinary girl who is determined to change her own story, even if it means being a little bit naughty...we still haven't seen this in New York, and this is also high on our list to see while in London.
Well dear peeps, I must get going.
I'll let you know what we decide to see and tell you more about my London trip tomorrow, Travelin' Tuesday.
