Video: Let The Sunshine In (Hair)

Yesterday I went with my husband and daughter to see “Hair”, the revival of the 60’s musical at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End of London.

The first half of the show was excellent and very entertaining, but the second half was, for me, a bit slow. However, the end, with audience participation, was fantastic. If I hadn’t been sat upstairs (wearing very high shoes), I would definitely have got up on stage with the cast and had a dance.

The show is well worth seeing before it ends in September.
