After lazing in our room for the morning, about 12pm we caught the hotel shuttle bus to Stansted Airport train station for the 50 minute trip into London.
At Liverpool Street station, we came above ground and went across the road into the Railway Arms pub for a pear cider and some people-watching to break up the journey.
About 2:30pm, we left the pub and took the Underground to Tottenham Court Rd and came up an exit right beside the Dominion Theatre. I was able to collect our tickets early, so that avoided queuing later. We had time to kill before meeting Jo, Shelley and I walked around the block a few times looking in shops and found a place to eat, Cote Brasserie in Charlotte St, which had a good Pre-Theatre menu. We settled in here with a drink to chat until Jo, Jess and Martin arrived for dinner.
At 7pm, we walked back to the Dominion Theatre to see An American in Paris
by George and Ira Gershwin. There was a lot of dance in the production and the dancers were very obviously classically trained in ballet. Both Shelley and I faded quite a bit as
the night went on and I gave myself whiplash a few times as I fought off jetlag.
The show finished about 10:15pm and we caught the Underground back to Liverpool St Station and were lucky to get a train that was about to leave. We arrived at Stansted at 11:30pm and caught the midnight shuttle bus back to the hotel.
