The London buzz...

I’ve been such a busy bee with work this week, though I managed to fit in a few fun things. The other day I went to see a curiously named musical comedy at the Donmar Warehouse. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was originally produced on Broadway. It involves audience participation and is hilariously funny, as well as being rather odd. The characters are decidedly quirky in a way that forces you to consider your own eccentricities.

The costumes in the show are retro American preppy style and reflect the uniqueness of each of the performers. Individuality is something ShopCurious will be looking out for today at London Fashion Week. Is London still buzzing with creativity?

I’m curious to find out if, in this economic environment, London fashions have become more conventional and commercial, and less cutting-edge.

Are you?

The show sounds fun ...
for those who can spell anyway.
Or have I got that wrong? i.e. no actual spelling involved.
Never really got into Jonathan Richman, but I know people who are.
Have a good weekend!

Thanks Jan - you too.

Yes there is spelling (of some very curious words). And appreciate Jonathan Richman is something of an acquired taste!
