Theatre development: new staircase which is good as I was always a bit worried about falling down the old curvy one, a cafe space on ground floor, usual baked goods, still hoarding round the new theatre and obviously a way into from the Globe spaces that is boarded up still. The Swan cafe very buzzy, pricey but quite nice food. So many places to eat round there; Globe snacks expensive too. But then they don't get a subsidy.

Roger Allam really was wonderful, big when needed to be and gentle with his daughter.
Jessie's accent is much,much improved from A little night music, though she still sings out the side of her mouth. She was so joyous and lively it was infectious.

It does exist - Return to the Forbidden Planet.

The music/singing comes in at the moments where magic is being enacted. Makes up for the lack of 17th century SFX and the need to make things clear. Colin sounds pretty good. The spirits and goddeses are very good . Roger and Jessie don't have much to sing, but its pretty stunning when they do - lots of potential there together for other roles.
Actually the Tempest should make a decent musical. It may have a lot more potential than the Winter's Tale, which I thought was pretty tedious and ultimately story light, but got some well deserved good reviews last year for some really good performances
