|Count Arthur Strong as seen in Hull Open|
On Sunday we had an outing to Richmond Theatre to see the legendary (in his own mind anyway) -Count Arthur Strong.
It was a reminder of our visit to Hull but also to when we saw him before as a solo performer, nearly four years ago (and he doesn't look any older).
To be honest I preferred the earlier show (but then it's likely to be that it's either better or worse) - the supporting characters didn't add and the activity around the curtain being stuck/not rising felt a little bit of a cliché - and went on too long.
Highlights were though Arthur singing 'Lovely Day' and some of his dance moves - generally audience were appreciative and it was a nice way to spend a Sunday evening. (Here's a clip of Arthur).
