Almost midnight.
Midland train from London to Northampton.
I’m sitting on one of those self foldable seat in the wheelchair area.
Oposite me, two late 40’s mums with their teen daughters and a octogenarian grandma.
They were returning from London where they had seen Alain Boublil’s musical Les Misérables at Queen’s Theatre.
They seem to be very impressed by the show, specially by Jean Valjean (Peter Lockyer) performance.
They had a long adorable discussion about the play arguing about the music, actors’/actresses’ performances, script, lights, mise en scène etc. comparing the show with Tom Hooper’s 2012 film (between us, apparently Hugh Jackman won unanimously competition with Peter Lockyer 😉 ).
I appreciated this happening as normality. Three generations ladies sharing enthusiastically a visual/acoustic experience.
Normality which I never had and I will never have.
Passed Bletchley already. Next stop MK. I must get off…
