Spirit of the Bard
After seeing a musical, a concert, and a play in London, I've realized what seems so strange and different to me...standing seats. I can't speak for big theatres in New York and Chicago, but in my experience, everyone who buys a ticket has a seat. Even on the floor at a concert, you have a seat, even if you don't use it. I'm not sure how popular a standing seat would be for an average venue in the States. Usually the standing seats are sold the day of the show and they are much cheaper, but I'm not sure it's worth it. So, when I bought a ticket to see Wicked today, I made sure that it came with a seat!
We took a few night photos on our way back from the theatre. The lights along the Thames make for a great show, especially looking east to the Tower Bridge. The shot below was taken from the Millennium Bridge looking toward St. Paul's Cathedral.
