The life and times of a happy go lucky blogger in London
star struck….the holly and the ivy…
Categories: blogging mums

Yes, I know it’s too early for Christmas carols but I can never resist a pun, so this is just a quick update on my night up West with one of my favourite gal pals – Ruthy Ruth who helped me get my work mojo back many months ago. We loved The Ivy – all swank and bubbles, a fab place for a pre theatre supper if ever I found one

The show was great too.

….we waited for an hour at the stage door to get our programmes signed.
We had a few giggles with some of the other people waiting.
Shortly a crowd of people arrived, they hadn’t been to the show, they just wanted a piece of the stage door action. I was introduced to a new subculture and realised…there’s a nerd for everything. I was privy to the world of the theatre geeks. They were ready for their close up, magazines, photos, video cameras, the works.

In the midst of the flash bulbs, out came the product of Truman Capote’s vivid imagination – Holly, tripping the light fantastic.


Miniminx was delighted this morning when I gave her a signed programme for the show, with her name on it!

The Holly Golightly legend lives on.
And me? Yes a little starstruck and quite pleased at the way my little snapshot came out.

  1. I got in a little trouble for loitering far too long by the stage door. I took my wife to see ‘My Fair Lady’, and as I had grown up with a Martine McCutcheon obsession, was milling around pretending to look for a restaurant, awaiting her exit. The wife clocked this eventually, and I got teased considerably.

      That’s hysterical – I have to admit to being transfixed my Matt Damon in This is our Youth – a great production starring him, Casey Affleck and Summer Pheonix, great actor, sadly he wore boxer shorts throughout the performance, what’s a girl to do but gawp eh?

  2. Love the photo! So glad it all lived up to expectations.
