Sorry there was no White Shirt Monday this week – but I come with a black jacketed peace offering on Thursday. Can we all just drop whatever we’re holding onto at the moment and appreciate the utter magnificence that is Sarah Connolly chewing up the scenery? (more photos here – even one with fangirls. Involves back negligés, too.)
White I’m n0t sold on Charpentier’s very French phrasing in an English translation, I’m definitely sold on Connolly (which isn’t news, exactly, but who minds the picture?!).
The show is still running through mid-March for the lucky Londoners among us. The rest of us will have to come up with fan fiction in which Medée and Creusa dump Jason and make for a rainbow family sunset escape. Dragon wagon optional.
