A note from the author

We put this AVMovie together (a compilation of still photos and video clips) to show off London theatres as they are seen most often by theatre goers – by night.

Thanks to Ben Shafik for his lighthearted and  informative commentary and Fionn O'Lochlainn for the original music.

Watch out for the new version with current liveries and the names of the theatres as they appear.

HAIR AT LAST

At last you can get to see the Broadway show here in London - or even you can get to see it at last. (well you could have missed it the first time round:-)

This musical hits the boards running - the entire crew, who have given an award winning best in Broadway,  well versed and ready to let the sun shine in -  - couldn't resist the pun - that song is more like a prayer echoing from the sixties.

Oh yes there are issues - heavy some of them,...  if you call social conscience heavy. It's about the real life explore Hair Pic 1through waking up to the fact you are already free.  Hey you can go on stage with not a stich on your back.  Thats free and easy - so prurient snide stuff about it.  Natural - there's more going on in the way of conversation to pay all that much mind to it.

And the word hymn in a particularly broad sense, brings the romantic endeavour from the past forty odd years ago.  Now we can see the influence for real that those days had on these days. The show is vested with a generous spirit and performed to the utmost by a radiant cast.

Story
Hair A bunch of hippies who call themselves a tribe live their lives and share it with each other. It's as though they are all genuinely interested in the others.

What comes of this is a progression of pastiches, song and dance to take you with them.  

This is a show you want to get good seats for - the audience are very much a part of the vibe.
