Year of the Rabbit


May - Tim Blair

The outside of the Palace Theatre in London, with a crowd standing around under the awning depicting the name of the show
This month we took the day off work, headed to London, and spent 6 hours in the theatre watching a fantastic production. It's actually split into two separate shows, and we chose to watch both on the same day (essentially both matinée and evening performances, with a break for dinner in the middle).

The whole show is much more fast-paced than I had expected (especially the first half), and it was great to revisit the known characters (picking up from epilogue from the last Harry Potter book), and the staging is simple yet fantastic. The architecture of the Palace Theatre really felt like it enhanced the magic of the story too.

I did have a slightly numb bum by the end of it...
