I think that you must have spent a lot of money... :-))

I'll be seeing the play matinee on Saturday 6 September, because I already have tickets to see Richard Armitage in The Crucible with a friend that evening and it made sense to combine the two into one trip.

However it is possible that I may also be in London on Saturday 30 August, because I may have to help my daughter to move out of temporary accommodation there that day. Therefore there may be a chance of meeting up after all... perhaps late morning? I'll let you know for sure nearer the time. Meanwhile, good luck with the rest of the plans for your trip. :-)

Yes. Less than I feared I might have to but about the same as what I had to pay for Seminar. It is worth though, because coming all that way I might as well see the play from different angles.

Thank you. And late morning will be good, because it is possible that August 30 will be a two-show day for me as well, the second show being Les Mis :).

Yes, fun to see from both sides and also from the stage seating. I had stage seating in that theatre before and it was fun because the actors were entering and exiting right next to me all the time. :-)

I hope you get your chance to see Les Mis also. I think to hear (feel!) the songs performed live in the theatre will be very emotional!

Is your mother still travelling with you, or are you now coming solo?

On 30 August my daughter has to be out of her accommodation by 10am and we will be heading to Kings Cross station to catch a train home. We'd be there about 11am. There's a good place to meet, up the stairs next to the HP shop, called The Parcel Yard, where one can sit comfortably for ages over a hot or cold drink, food if desired. I'd suggest it the best place to meet up if we are both free on the day. And you can then easy get the underground to your matinee at Trafalgar Studios. And my daughter and I won't have to carry her luggage too far!

I had close to stage sitting for Borkman in BAM: the first row of seats were level with the stage with no orchestra pit, and since the stage was not that large, the actors sometimes were less than a meter away, it was fascinating.

I hope the songs are not going to be too emotional, I would hate to bawl in public (and I did when I watched last years movie :) ).

I do not know yet about my mother. She was told she will be clear to fly a month after the procedure, but it is not yet clear when it will take place. There are some ridiculous requirements, such as you have to have "fresh" bloodwork done, and fresh ECG and many more fresh tests... and the time they are all considered fresh is so short that by the time you have one done the others expire. And then there might be complications (which of course we hope there won't be but noone can guarantee that). But I hope she will come!

I will keep the place in mind, and we will talk more about it closer to the date :)

I'm quite sure that at least half the audience at any performance of Les Mis will be in tears from the first moment the music begins! :-))

Best of luck to your mother with coordinating all the tests and for the procedure itself.

And yes, contact me again when your travel details are more definite, and hopefully we can confirm a meet-up on 30 August!
