The musical

I had heard about 'We Will Rock You' and seen the posters for a long time. When I had my London trip, the school would see the show, while I waited in my coach. I never did get the chance to see it. 

Then, back in June, a leaflet with my mother's weekly: We Will Rock You was coming to the Netherlands. I decided to go and bought two tickets almost immediately. Not sure who was coming, but that problem was solved within a couple of minutes: my Mum. 

On Saturday we made our way to the town where the musical was being tried out. First of course we had to get dinner (Greek, yummy) and then we made our way to the theater. A cup of coffee for my Mum and a short girly break for myself. And then on into the theater itself.

The place was packed. Not a single seat left and everybody was buzzing with anti....cipation (sorry, wrong musical). Well, what can I say? It started, the music was good (duh), the singers were great and Anasticia really has a throat on her! My goodness, can that woman belt out a song!

During the break there was a little drink, then back to see the rest. It was absolutely brilliant and well worth how ever much I paid for it. I wouldn't mind going again, but there is the small matter of not much income, a visit to the Eurovision party, a holiday in Northern Ireland and probably a cinema visit here or there. 

But, well worth the visit. Loved it!!

  5. Have seen several Musicals here and in London, but not this one, I believe you it was certainly nice. Yes entries for good musicals are quite expensive ! Long time I haven't been here. Bad month for me ! Couldn't go to Egypt, husband had eye surgery (cataracte) and Christmas is approaching ! Toby is busy with Sant Niklaas who was already in Ijburg end November !!

  6. How great to get to see a live performance. And that potty could surely hide a few bits of debris! It is certainly unusual. Bet your Mum is enjoying some time with you! Take care and Happy Feast of St. Nicholas.

    1. Apparently there were three different potties! I saw one of the other two, but this one was much more fun.

      St Nicholas is tomorrow and we don't do anything for it. Haven't done for absolute yonks. Neither do we exchange gifts for Christmas. It will just be an ordinary day, although I do vote for hot chocolate!
