Ummm, yeah

Well, here's the "official" word on the musicals I saw in London. Ben Brantley from the New York times offers his opinion of the "Send in the Clowns" thing from A Little Night Music:
When Hannah Waddingham — the tall, endearingly awkward actress playing the disorganized actress Desiree — sings “Send In the Clowns,” you feel privy to a private and privileged conversation. I wouldn’t swap those few quiet moments of song for three hours of dancing nuns or drag queens.

Sorry, no. I'd rather have the drag queens. I would have traded the too-long Night Music for a night with Roger Allam in drag any day.

Chacun a son gout.
