Let Me Explain

I was at the Lewisham Hotel with Graeme and John last night (and a few others) when all of a sudden my eyes were drawn to the poster on the wall. It was a “signed” tour poster featuring Sammy Davis Junior, Liza Minelli and Frank Sinatra. The most obvious thing about the poster was that Liza looked totally smashed (that mid-distance cocaine stare), so it looked like poor Sammy and Frank were having to hold her up.

And then I looked down a bit further…

…and saw a bracketed explanation of “theatre in the round”. Did we really need it explained?

I also thought it was cute – and a sign of the times – that you could actually write in for tickets. Ah, how times have changed.
