It’s mine and Rob’s 11th wedding anniversary next week (it only feels like yesterday that we got married), so he took me to see Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre on the Strand, London. Well I thought it was amazing, Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton were outstanding and the rest of the cast had such breath-taking voices. If you like going to the theatre, this is one show that I think you should not miss, even Rob liked it and he is not much of a theatre goer.
Prior to the theatre, we went to dinner at Smollensky’s Bar and Restaurant. Great looking restaurant and right across the road from the theatre.
We both had the Cajun chicken jambalaya to start, which unfortunately was underwhelming, it just looked like chicken stew with rice on the side and at £15.30 each, was quite expensive for what we got, but the desert was amazing, I had the Grandma Smollensky’s peanut butter cheesecake, maybe not clean and lean – but oh so delicious!
The London skyline did look amazing last night. Shame it was raining though.
