Following an enjoyable visit to one of our meetings from Park Theatre last Autumn, we decided to have a WI trip to see a production at the Finsbury Park venue. We chose well with the Stephen Sondheim-Richard Rogers musical Do I Hear A Waltz. This was a rare revival of the musical, which is set in Venice. The actors did more than justice to the songs and the icing on the cake was the humour much of which was focused around the language differences between the Americans and Italians typified by the song “No Understand’. We have all been there!
Park Theatre was new to most of us and turned out to be a cosy but comfortable venue. The bar cum cafe buzzed and both bar and theatre were almost full which is not bad for a Tuesday evening in March. Fifteen members went home having had an uplifting evening and the best bit was that home was but a short bus ride away.
