Tom and Bing Crosby...
Just a quickie to give you a link to a news item on the Parwich Blog today about Parwich’s own Tom Chambers who will be appearing in White Christmas, at the end of the year.
We may all be biased but we think he is very good indeed and in time will go far! Meanwhile, no doubt there will be coach loads of trips to the theatre to support him.
Talking of which several friends and we went to Stratford on Saturday to see the RSC current production of Antony and Cleopatra. We often go, and love the Courtyard Theatre where one is so close the the stage and all the action wherever one is sitting. Normally we are riveted by the whole performance but – although as always we enjoyed the outing – we were very underwhelmed by this modern dress production.
The compelling love affair between Antony and Cleopatra was very unconvincing - it wasn’t obvious what they saw in each other at all, so the whole point of the play was rather lost.
