Today I am sooooo anti-climaxed!!
No more Sleuth to look forward to - unless I go to Aberdeen to take my mother in law, but that's looking unlikely.
Well, last night was our second visit to Sleuth, with 6 other family members ( including James' ex wife and husband) and it was a fantastic evening. The theatre was roasting - heard some women afterwards saying that the heat had spoiled their evening, but not mine! The audience was much more vocal than on Monday, and there was a real loud giggler in!! Michael's "strip" got a lot of increasingly appreciative oohs and giggles.
The flappy boots went down well, particularly when he negotiated the stairs at speed. The funniest bit was when Simon threw Michael the juggling balls, and the second one went down his trousers - swiftly retrieved amidst much laughter, on stage and off.
Also, when the gelignite had been set, and Simon was waiting for Michael to reach the front of the stage, his boots got the audience laughing, and Michael joined in - there was a good pause before straight faces were restored!! The clothing was much more vigorously strewn than on Monday, with a nightie left hanging on one of the highest paintings, and something long hanging over the door, which snared Simon later on. Anyway, the long and the short of it is that the performance was fantastic. We met both of them afterwards and got photos with Michael, and Simon wore out someone's Sharpie signing everyone's programmes. He also signed my photo from the other night - I'll get that scanned in and post it later. In our other photo from Monday, I look even worse, so we cropped me out and kept Simon - not bad, eh?!!
