I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Friday letters – the first of July edition


Dear squirrels,  If I were to put some food out specially for you, with a sign with your names on it, would you leave the bird feeders alone so that the birds can have a chance? 

Dear laptop,  Your days may be numbered.  That is all I am going to say on the matter.

Dear raincoatAt this rate you are going to be worn out by the end of the summer!

Dear London Palladium,  You really need to get yourselves more organised and think about the fact that, if hundreds of complimentary tickets have been given out for a show and have to be collected from the Box Office on the evening of the performance, then there are going to be lots of people arriving at the same time to collect them! Having to delay the start of a show by 30 minutes because the queues were so long is not really acceptable.  It’s astonishing to think that it hadn’t occurred to someone that this might happen!

Dear London Palladium (again),  You were a magnificent venue for the world premier concert performance of a brand new musical, Eugenius.  I hope the potential investors who were there on Wednesday night see that this would be a show worth backing.  The music is brand new, the style is 80s and the jokes come thick and fast.  It was a great evening, with a magnificent cast, and we came home with the songs ringing in our ears.

Eugenius the Musical

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. Re. letter 1: only if you have very clever squirrels who’ve learned to read!

  2. The show sounds like fun.

  3. Sounds like a great show. I wouldn’t bank on the squirrels being able to read. 🙂

  4. we had the same problem with the squirrels. they are not going to change, no matter what

  5. Am I alone in liking squirrels…?? I’ll wait until I’ve been to see your previous recommendation of The Play that Goes Wrong (mid Aug) before I trust you on any others 😉

  6. Firstly, wouldn’t it be easier in this day and age for them to email tickets to people who could then print them or simply show the tickets on their phones? That’s what happens here. Secondly, this show sounds great. Will it still be on at the end of September?

    • Emailing the tickets would have been the perfect solution, especially as for many people the application for the complimentary tickets was by email! I think it was the London Palladium who hadn’t thought it through properly. I’ve have just found out that their staff were actually taking handfuls of named envelopes and walking up and down the huge queue calling out names. Such disorganisation, which was all down to the theatre rather than the company who were putting on the show.
      Sadly it will not be on at the end of September because it was a one night only performance. They are hoping to get enough financial backing to be able to develop it as a full musical by next year.

  7. Happy Friday, Elaine. There must have been someone new working on the ticket office that day when the complimentary tickets were issued.

  8. Sounds like a great show, Elaine. 🙂 I’m seriously out of touch when it comes to theatre.
    No squirrels but we have some very ungainly big pigeons who try to balance on the washing line to steal nuts and seeds. Good entertainment 🙂

  9. Sounds like the London Palladium needs a German on their organising committee 😉

Now it's your turn
