And Alan -- you brought back a memory I haven't thought about in a long time. I saw Hair in London in 1971 when I was on a teen tour. Looking back -- I am surprised that was the show they chose to take us to!
Thank you, Claudia Sails, for your reply about current plays availability, theatre a/c & seating, and weather. I am going on the tour next month in August (7 to 22) and I agree with you re difficulty finding a taxi after the play ends at night, also about the tight seating in London theaters (it was the case at the Savoy when I saw a play there a couple of years ago) (unfortunately it is the same for most theaters in NYC on Broadway these days too. Sigh.). I love musicals so I checked out what might be playing in London during my time there in August 2017; many look interesting (some of which I have seen before (e.g. Wicked, Les Mis, 42nd Street, etc.), but I am not so sure that I would go so far as to hassle trying to see anything if it means heat/humidity/tight theater seating/lack of A/C/and difficulty finding transportation after the show. Sigh. LOL. :-)). I will just play it by ear once we are in London at the end of the tour. BTW, our hotel, The Savoy, is gorgeous and an excellent choice by Tauck. Again thank for your "headsup" posting. :-)
British and Claudia Sails. I did the full UK tour from Edinburgh to London and from London to Edinburgh (not with Tauck) back in 1975, so I have already seen most of the places/sights that this Tauck tour will cover. The one thing that I was not able to see/do back in 1975 was the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo as I was in the country in July when that was not being done. I have a knee brace which helps, but there may be things on this tour I will pass on when I am over there. No problem. :-). This will be my 34th Tauck tour (about half overseas and half in the U.S./Canada; I will get along fine. :-)
