Arts and Entertainment, London
Watch a MUSICAL! London is THE place to catch world-famous and not-so-famous musicals. We watched Sunset Boulevard and Miss Saigon during our week stay there. We actually tried to watch Mark and Mandy too but when we went to the theatre that evening, we couldn't get any tickets because there was a bomb scare and the police was surrounding that theatre and combing through it. Those with tickets were just hanging around - I hope they managed to watch it finally!
Fondest memory: If you have never watched any musical before, I highly recommend you to start with Les Miserables (by Cameron Mackintosh) and Phantom of the Opera (by Andrew Lloyd Webber). My personal favourite is Les Miserables and I have watched it twice when it toured in Singapore and heard the CD countless time. The music was out of this world and story very heartwarming. Next time I get to go to London, I will watch it again at the Les Mis Palace - don't miss it!
The Horse at Water statue is located near the Marble Arch.
The art is made by Nic Fiddian-Green.
Favorite thing: Crossing in front of the painting of Jean-Michel Basquiat offered for sale at Sotheby's auction - LONDON (AP)
All over London,it is posible to come to some kind of festivity or entertaintment..
Fondest memory: This was a Turkish festival by the south bank of Thames river.
I just liked this statue... can't remember who it's by but it looked sweet surrounded by early spring purple primulas.
It's near St Paul's Cathedral.
Favorite thing: You see them all around Europe in the major cities, but somehow the one's in London are just better. This guy was sitting next to the Thames river on 24 Dec 2004 and he was excellent.
The choice of Film in London is just great, I feel spoilt!
The National Film Theatre on the South Bank will have a wide selection of films (no Hulk, Spidermand etc...) and festivals..
Fondest memory: They put fiberglass cows all over London and got all different people to paint them. these where by Trafalger square.
You're not supposed to touch but they supposdly sell sweets inside the Paul McCarthy Pinocchio sculpture.
"Blockhead" loosely based on the character of Pinocchio.
Favorite thing: Here we are behind some people that I think my mum is more than delighted to be next to. Yes the legend called "Beatles". Not my kind of music but anyway... as long as she is happy... :-)
Favorite thing: The open-air theatre on the site of Shakespeare’s playhouse is a magnificent reconstruction of the original theatre.-
Favorite thing: You will keep good memories of London if you visit a musical. We really enjoyed the musical Cats from Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Fondest memory: LEICESTER SQUARE. Packed with people, pubs, theatres, discos, street performances, and more! Busy 24 hours from dust till dawn.
Favorite thing: Visit LONDON TRANSPORT MUSEUM at COVENT GARDEN Piazza and see old Underground trains, old London red double-decker buses.
Favorite thing: Have you ever wondered how Madame Tussard looked like? Well, in above pix, she is shown taking a death mask of a guillotined Queen Antonitte.
