I am in London on Thursday and am seeing John Gabriel Borkman-matinee.

What should I see in the evening?

I have the following options and their reasons:

Evita --because it closes soon

Porgy and Bess --because it closes soon

Lady from Du something--because Maggie Smith is in it

Boeing Boeing --because everyone says it is fabulous

Views/Comments will be appreciated.

Thanks

Evita - only if you LOVE the score. The production itself doesn't have much to recommend it except its superb leading lady.

Porgy & Bess - beautiful music, but the story and characters suffer greatly from the condensation. Still worth seeing.

Lady from Dubuque - as great as Maggie is...well, let's just say this play is not worthy at all of her greatness.

Haven't seen Boeing Boeing but i want to and everyone I know who has seen it has loved it!

He used to call me Blue Roses.

I disagree. I love this production, and I don't usually like ALW's work.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.

I ended up seeing Boeing Boeing. I usually prefer Drama when I am at the theatre on my own but this play was just fantastic.
