Thank you to everyone who pointed out you cant see the banner – its a blip in the blog ! Being mended as we speak – ill repost the banner when its de blipped.

Today we have our first run in rehearsals – the actors were amazing, they really went with it – it’s a huge thing to put a piece together for the first time and their focus was brilliant. It’s really taking shape. I’m excited.

Another bit of news, me and Leonard Fenton are going to be on BBC London radio on Thursday night (21 January) to talk about the play. I’m hoping to convince Leonard to sing some Schubert (he is a brilliant singer – seriously, collar him in the bar after the show and ask him to sing you something). We’re not on until 10.30pm though as its the late show… don’t worry if that’s too late ! I’ll post the link to the BBC iplayer page here after we have done it so people who don’t hear can catch up.

Im already a bit nervous…smiley+
