  1. So very sorry to her this sad news and what a terrible shock for her loved ones and friends. With deepest condolences on their loss and may Katherine rest in peace.
  2. Another desperately sad death and the loss of an original talent that never failed to light up the stage and screen. I had no idea that Helen McCrory was ill but can well understand her wish not to broadcast the news. May she rest in peace and may her undoubted strength help her husband and young family through the difficult time ahead.
  3. How desperately sad for Liam's family. Such a tragic loss of a young life and undoubted talent. With deepest condolences to his family and to all who mourn him. May he rest in peace.
  4. So very sorry to hear that, Stevie. My very best wishes for a full and quick recovery for your 91 year old friend.
  5. It was, Janite, wasn’t it. A fascinating perspective upon those long ago times.
  6. And for anyone who is interested, you can catch Saturday's Music Matters on Radio 3 which, towards the end, included a fascinating account by Allegra Kent of dancing Agon in Russia with Arthur Mitchell during the Cuban Missile crisis.

  9. And, BridieM, what a gorgeous review from what seems to have been a place with a very restricted view. So glad you were able to see some of the dancing and hoping the parts you missed will be streamed.
  10. One night only, perhaps. But as Frankie Valli famously sang back in the day: “Oh what a night!” One to treasure for so many reasons: that stroke of luck in choosing to book for the first and, sadly, only night in this run; the sense of privilege in just being there on this remarkable night in such uncertain times; and then, most of all, for the beauty, poignancy, joyousness and, in turn, sassiness that touched the performances of every one of those remarkable dancers who graced the stage with their extraordinary talent. it seems churlish and, indeed, scarcely possible to single anyone o
  11. They certainly are. I always ask my six year old grandson and now the three year old is getting in on the act.
  12. For me, Diamonds is the sort of role that sits perfectly with Sarah Lamb's onstage persona and technical precision. More of the same, please, from her. Probably the most joyful and utterly life-affirming performance of Fille that I have ever seen! What a fantastic reaction from the audience in the house and how thrilling (and so well-deserved) must that have been for O'Sullivan and Sambe. Just lovely! Like many others, I, too, have never before seen MacMillan's Carousel and very much hope to see more of it soon. I just adored the glorious and very special rapport betwee
  13. Yes, yes and yes again! After an unthinkable, unwanted seven month drought, a veritable feast. More indeed, and soon, please! We miss you, RB!
