Well, I knew there was a very good reason why I’m in the Louise Brooks Society, and this must count as one of them, because I probably wouldnt have known this without them. On November 1st, guess what’s showing in Leeds? Pandora’s Box, thats all! 🙂 Opera North, thank you so much.
Yes, technically I can watch it anyway, its available on You Tube, but…seriously, there’s a huge difference between watching a film on a laptop, and watching it on the big screen, with live music. Alright, there’s part of me that thinks it would be more fun if Andy McCluskey had written the score, and was performing it with OMD, but anyway…
Now all I have to do is get a suitable shift for that day at work, and preferably the Friday off, because its going to be a late night getting home, even possibly needing a taxi back home from town, but we will see on that at the time. For those in other parts of the country, its also being shown in London, Warwick and Manchester if that is better for you? Details
So, anyone out there want to take Lulu to the show? Well, I’ve got Lou as a middle name, and if I’d been more rebellious when transitioning, it would have been Louise, so… No,no takers, I’m pretty sure, lets face it, I’m not as young, or as pretty as Brooksie, so hardly belle of the ball/woman of your dreams material lol! Seriously, I’m happy to buy my own ticket etc, just thought it might be fun? No, dont worry, I wont wear a stunning (or even plain), flapper style dress unless you’re buying lol, and I certainly cant do the helmet bob look without a wig lol, there are some limits to what I can achieve with my hair, and budget lol! I bet some of the cinema goers do though. Sorry guys, high heels, you have no chance. By the way, girls who want a female partner, feel fine to offer to come with me too.
Ah, the music. I bet you’re expecting OMD, and Pandoras Box, or Abba, and Take A Chance On Me? Wrong on both counts, though both were considered, it has to be said. Actually if you change the day, the clue is in the title. I’m guessing this performance is from a 70’s TV series, when their fame was revived, but dont quote me on that.
I will wear a dress, instead of top and trousers/skirt if a ‘partner’ wants me to, but expect to escort me all the way there if you do, I am transgendered, and there are idiots about, especially at night, so…sense prevails. A helmet bob wig, you bet I would, darlings!
Any brave beaus about in the Yorkshire area? 😉
