Eddie's in London - he went to see "The Light Princess" musical yesterday

( x )

Quote: I did an interview once where I was asked who I found attractive and I went on about cartoons and Nala from ‘The Lion King’ - and it’s a bit weird but various of my ex-girlfriends actually did look like Nala. ( x )

I'm not surprised Eddie went to see this show. The Light Princess brings together iconic singer-songwriter Tori Amos with playwright Samuel Adamson and director Marianne Elliott (Curious Incident, War Horse) in a spectacular coming-of-age story. A dark fairytale about grief, rebellion and the power of love.

...I'm worried about saying it's a conventional musical because I don't think it is.
...I wouldn't say it's a family show, although you can come as a family. I don't think people should come expecting a fairytale. It's not so dark that you couldn't bring a young child to it, but it's definitely dealing with issues that aren't your typical fairytale issues.
