It was a while after I heard about Liz Taylor’s death that I remembered the time I met her and how it was splashed across the pages of the tabloids.Â I’m not sure, but it might have even been on the front page of one of them.Â If so it must have been a slow […]

We spent this evening at East Riddlesden Hall, near Keighley at an open-air production of The Three Musketeers. Given the weather this week we were very lucky and had a very fine evening – if only the rest of the audience hadn’t used the good weather as an excuse to ignore their children’s bad behaviour… […]

I had a visit today from the Mother and Godmother so I could give tem some lessons in how to set their website up. Talk about bridging the generation gap! I’m not sure who had the biggest culture shock – them coming to terms with file transfers, image re-sizing and database structure or me trying […]
I was having a look at a list of musicals on Wikipedia this evening, and found that there was a stage musical of Debbie Does Dallas. My mind boggled.

You cannot open a newspaper or magazine at the moment without coming across something about Mitchell & Webb, usually saying they are the future of British comedy and comparing them to Peter Cook & Dudley Moore. I saw That Mitchell & Webb Look last night, and thought it was funny enough. Robert Webb has the […]

When I first saw a poster for the musical Daddy Cool, I really expected it to be critically panned, shunned by the crowds, and disappear without trace. So far it has had reviews ranging from ‘respectable’ all the way up to ‘glowing’. I would eat my words, but I am too busy at the moment…

I don’t know when they started up although I believe they were around in the 1930s and I am not sure when they disappeared. All I do know is that several people who were involved in The Langdon […]
