Blythe Spirit

Just got back from a lovely trip to the theatre to see Noel Coward's Blythe Spirit with my parents. A nice 65th birthday present for my mother, who's always enjoyed live acting, and passed that love (and a taste for Gilbert and Sullivan) to me. The show was marvelous to watch, with the greatest set that destroyed itself right at the end. Great 1920's decor, complete with falling chandalier, collapsing bookcases, flaring lamps and leaning pillars. Complete with Penelope Keith as Madame Arcardi the medium, and a sterling supporting cast. The only troubles I had with the whole thing was a slight problem occasionally with the sound system, and the large (and often moving) hairstyle of the lady sitting in front of me.

Of course, halfway through, I start getting ideas for a Buffy crossover, or more likely an AU. Just imagine Madam Rosenberg, or Xander Harris being haunted by the ghost of his first girlfriend Anya.

Yes, I need help.

(by the way, I love this new icon. Love it, love it, love it.)
