Just coming to end of a fabulous week in Antalya in Turkey. One of those cheap package deals from the internet that you have know real idea about. But turned out to be a week in a 5 star Sheraton (excellent hotel) and evening meals in three of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in, anywhere.

They are: 7 Mehmet (some of the best fish I've ever had) Marco Polo (some of the best pasta I've ever eaten) and Club Arma - most certainly the best creme brulee in the world. Amazing staff and service - felt like old friends immediately - and all for a pretty reasonable price.

Then you're just 20 minutes away from one of the best preserved Roman theatres in the world, Aspendos. Quite incredible. And the ancient city of Pergo - in which you can walk down a miraculously preserved Roman street, paved with mosiacs, lined with columns, and with a hundred shops on each side of the road. As near to going back in time as it is possible to experience.

A pretty good internet find which I thoroughly recommend.

We've been auditioning for the new HORRIBLE HISTORIES this week and I can't remember meeting such a nice bunch of people over four days of auditions. It would have been much more fun just to chat rather than get on with the speeches but what made it even more fun was finding that people were as talented as they were socialable. A very good few days in theatre world.

Time Out

A good way to end the London run - 5 stars in Time Out. The day before we finish! All being well, London will get it's next chance to see the show next year!

The producer

A great comment from Michael Deeley in his new book when asked what a producer does: "Everything necessary"

They did it! They actually did it! Everything was saying they were going to, but I can't believe they actually did. Amazing things can still happen in this weird world. It's certainly the first time I've ever got emotional about a Presidential election. Hats off to you America. The world has rarely needed a leader more than it does now.
