High time I got back into blogging regularly. As I mentioned before, I took a whirlwind trip to London in March to see James McAvoy in MACBETH, onstage in London’s West End. For various reasons, my dear friend Rosemary O’Malley and I could only stay for 2 days. Still, we had the time of our lives, and can’t wait to return. Here are a few photos:
Rosemary took that great shot of the London Eye. I realize it’s pricey (we paid about $47.00 USD each) but it was stunning. The view from the Eye is simply remarkable: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, and much more. Worth every penny to us.
Above is a shot I took while riding the Eye. You can see the reflection in the glass to the bottom right.
Me having a cuppa in Caffe Concerto in Piccadilly. (Where DS Bhar interviewed Thora and Griffin in Something Blue.)
The marquee for Jamie Lloyd’s Macbeth, which must have been commissioned far in advance. In the actual show, James has a full beard for a sort of wild Scot look. The reviews, which were gushing, called him a “Mad Mac.”
Here’s Rosemary with the man himself. My picture turned out … disappointing. And as my gift to you, I’ll complain no more about it.
More pictures and a sneak look at Black & Blue (Lord & Lady Hetheridge #4) as soon as possible!
