My London Souvenir

On Saturday in London, after we purchased our theatre tickets, we stumbled upon Cecil Court, a perfect little street lined with book stores, just off Charing Cross Road and a couple of blocks from the Leicester Square tube station. In a bin in front a fabulous little sheet music and book shop, I discovered a program from the 1987 London production of Lettice and Lovage at the Globe Theatre starring Dame Maggie Smith and Margaret Tyzack. The pefect souvenir for this collector! Coincidentally on Monday, Dame Maggie was in the London Evening Standard sharing her sad story about fearing a return to the stage.

Thanks for sharing. I had no idea she was battling cancer.

I feel extremely fortunate to have seen her during her last stage outing in Lady from Dubuque. There are few actresses whose talent I admire as much as Dame Maggie's.
