Cruciversary!

A year ago today, my DH & I were in London for the weekend, all alone, without the kids. The reason we were there? To see The Crucible at The Old Vic, which means that today is my 1st Cruciversary!

After the performance, which blew both of us away, we also met Richard Armitage at the stage door. It was over almost before it had begun but I was still able to hand him a little thank you gift and he signed some things for me. DH was able to snap a picture of me with Richard (quality not great but better than nothing):

RA & I

I look slightly manic but oh, what an experience it all was! I will remember it fondly forever!

  1. Happy Cruciversary!!! Was für eine schöne und beeindruckende Erinnerung für uns alle, die diesen Auftritt miterleben durften. Es war unglaublich und toll, dass er gerade in London auf der Bühne stand, wo wir relativ einfach und noch preisgünstig *hust* hinfliegen konnten und dieses Event zu fühlen! Denn ein Gefühl war es, mit allen Sinnen erleben – sehen, hören, riechen und fühlen (die Gänsehaut)…..
    Wieso kommt es mir so vor als ob das schon so viel länger als 1 Jahr her ist? Und ich war im August, einen Monat später…….
    ist in der Zwischenzeit so viel passiert?
    Ich kann nur hoffen, dass wir irgendwann wieder einmal die Möglichkeit dazu haben. Aber nicht unbedingt in NY….

    • Toll, dass Du auch letzten Sommer zum Crucible konntest! Das Digital Theatre Video ist zwar sehr gut und lässt mich vieles in Erinnerung wiedererleben, aber ‘live’ war doch wirklich eine sehr besondere Erfahrung! Schön, dass es Dir auch so gut gefallen hat.
      Ja, London ist gut anzureisen. Ich habe auch einen Bruder, der da wohnt and kann deshalb auch nog preisgünstig übernachten. 🙂 An dem Wochenende war er nicht da, mein Mann und ich hatten seine Wohnung für uns selbst.
      New York – da möchte ich im Herbst so gerne hin, denn es scheint, dass mein anderer Liebling Colin Firth dann Henry Higgins speilen wird in “My Fair Lady” am Broadway! Warum nicht in London? Warum?!?

  2. Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Crucivesary. Great coinage! How nice for you to have such a lovely souvenir of your trip! And I don’t think you look manic at all – you look excited and happy. Thanks for sharing – it is really great to be reliving all these memories at the moment.

    • Yes, he is, isn’t he? We were shoulder to shoulder. 🙂 He was going about the business of signing and posing quite quickly but in a very calm and gracious way. We had seen the play on Saturday evening and he had had a matinee that day as well. It is amazing to me that he could even stomach doing this so graciously. Good man.

    • Yup! The play exceeded all expectation, I saw Richard in action for 3.5 hours and I got to meet him briefly at the stage door after 8 years of loving him & following his career. It really was a dream come true.

  5. I love the picture! It is still mind-boggling to me that he showed up night after night, all the way through the run. He’s a love!
