If there's one thing there's no shortage of in London, it's things to do. The one thing I was really, really looking forward to though, was enjoying my first real West End musical.
Of course, I had to watch one of the classics - Les Misérables:
It was actually pretty packed inside that night, despite being a week night AND the show having run for about 24 years (such a long time!):
Ooh, it's starting! :) :)
I couldn't take any photos while the show was on but I definitely enjoyed the experience - it's a classic story with love, death and lots of singing. :)
I just wish I could have afforded a slightly nicer seat because the (cheap) one I was at was kinda far from the stage so I couldn't really see clearly....
Anyway, I ended up catching another musical while I was there - just couldn't miss the new hit, Wicked:
My goodness, it was packed to the brim!:
So cool, there's even a moving dragon on top of the stage!:
I actually splurged for nicer (in other words, more expensive *sigh*) tickets for this show and did not regret it one bit - loved the show, LOVED it.
(Interesting storyline - an unusual twist on the Wizard of Oz, great songs, and the lead actress had an amazing voice!)
Oh man, I just wish I had more time (and money!)...
There are so many great musicals in London but I had to limit myself to 2 during my visit there. I just hope I can visit again soon so that I can scratch a few more off my "Want to watch!" list.
