Monkey: Journey to the West

28 December 2008

A dream comes true for Sha
# 1 of an occasional series
Sometimes dreams happen in your sleep, other times they present themselves as a billboard on a dirty train platform infested by gout and tumour ridden pigeons.

This is what a little girl saw…

Monkey, Sha’s all time favourite childhood programme made into a stage show! With music and art by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett of Gorillaz fame!

Needless to say we went to the show and loved it. A combination of live action and animation, all mixed perfectly. The first of many shows we would/will see whilst here. It’s worth noting that with a small amount of effort and research, it is possible to procure tickets to most shows and attractions for well below full price.
