Phil, being that much better connected (to the mains if Andrew had his way) than Andrew, was invited to the launch of Bad Girls The Musical! at the Garrick Theatre this morning.
The Whingers are not familiar with the TV show on which this alleged musical is based. Andrew considers himself too cerebral and artistic to “do” telly; Phil does do telly (a lot) but has never watched Bad Girls because he found the concept reminded him of the many occasions he’s found himself at His Majesty’s pleasure during his youth.
Phil snapped merrily away with his box brownie regardless but regrettably – having harangued Boots into processing them in less than four hours – has no idea who any of the people pictured are so it was a bit of a waste of time really.
However he does know the wonderful Helen Fraser who played Lampwick’s daughter in the long forgotten Dick Emery TV show for which someone called Harold Pinter is listed as providing additional material.
Apparently it’s something to do with a lot of women who have fallen into bad ways and ended at some sort of holiday camp called Larkhall.
Judging by the shenanigans today there’s copious dollops of lesbianism, not something one sees on the Charing Cross Road every day. Phil didn’t quite know quite where to look.
The Whingers thought they’d share the results of the photo-call anyway since Phil had gone to all that trouble. Do let us know if you can enlighten us. Don’t let yourself be put off by the fact that we really don’t care.
