Sondheim. A Sondheim recital is on Radio 3 (England) this evening. I saw this show last week. I thought something was not quite right. It was being recorded. Sondheim recitals are not common,

    Dear Dolly, The artists' room at the Southbank had been turned into a bit of a junk shop with sixties recording equipment. Reel to reel tape-recroders etc and hordes of din sockets and things to plug here and there. The problem with the ...

    Dear Dolly, I rather liked your idea of thoughts bubbling up in boiling water with tea-bags. It is something a Russian might think of. The SouthBank seem to be concentrating on the Russians. A Russian singer dressed in a cotton dress ...

    The National Theatre bookshop had two British Library reprints of murder stories - one of foreign stories and one of crime stories on trains. This is a small bookshop, so these re-rreprints must be popular. Braddon's characters are much ...

    Dear Dolly, If you are not careful, you will end up like my grandfather with 'super thought's' whizzing around the universe - just like the internet. I thought of you yesterday as I joined a backstage tour of the refurbished South Bank. t is ...

          A billboard at a London railway terminus advertises a work of contemporary fiction with the words ‘All the sinister thrills of Victorian Gothic‘  Over the past week I have been reading one of the sources of this ...

    Dear Athelstone, The theatre at Chichester does offer a good selection of plays. The National Theatre in London would be the comparable venue. The price of preview seats at Chichester is about half that of the NT. The face value of a ...

    Back of the head, Squidge? I can beat that. At the last bus garage I worked at, one of the routes - not my regular one, but I drove it occasionally - terminated outside a prison. Well, one day my daughter was watching a TV documentary in which ...

    Sqidge It was based on Who want a Millionaire. I did not want to do a spoiler. It was a good evening out. I had a slight misgiving about the play. In the box to my right, was a very young American whom, it transpired was a drama student. Would ...

    Oh, I've heard about that play - isn't it the one based on the 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' cheats? My one second of fame (well, might have lasted a bit longer, don't know how long the display was up for) was that the back of my head (whilst ...

    Ah, that was "Quiz". I wanted to see that in Chichester before it moved to London but forgot all about it. Then I heard a review on Radio 4 and tried to book again but it was sold out (probably because of the review).

    Nice, my friend attended that play as well and she got questioned too. My only theatre fame was when I went to see Network at the National Theatre with Bryan Cranston. Part of the stage was set up as a restaurant and I was part of the people eating ...

           Yesterday I had my few minutes of fame.  This was no choice of mine and events occurred at random.   I had attended a play in which the theater had been turned into a TV quiz show.  We, the audience, ...

    It's always an eye-opener (ear-opener?) to realise how much good music you can see live at relatively low cost. I'd much rather hear most music in a smaller venue - I don't know who on earth want to cough up £150 or whatever it costs to see the ...
