Fabulous atmosphere in rugby this morning. Crowds lining the streets waiting for the Olympic Torch to come through. Kids (young and old) waving flags for the cameras.

What matters is theatre

By |Halo FX|

In the aftermath of the Jubilee weekend, I was listening last Wednesday to the Today program on Radio 4 reflecting on the weekend of celebrations and asking if big events can really be good entertainment.
