Shows I have slept through

1. Jesus Christ Super Star at the Regent Theatre in Dunedin.

One of the characters sang, Close your eyes, close your eyes . . .  and I did. We had young children at the time and sleep deprivation triumphed over the excitement of a night out.

2. ENZO (Or was it ENSO?) – Otago Museum. The NZ Symphony Orchestra and NZ Ballet playing & dancing to the music of Split Enz. 

The bits I was awake for were amazing but again the need for sleep was greater than the desire to watch the entertainment.

3. Evita at the Regent Theatre in Dunedin.

Another wonderful performance but I still couldn’t resist the temptation to have some very long blinks.

4. Cats at the Regent Theatre in Dunedin.

As for 3.

5.  Mama Mia at the TSB Arena in Wellington last night.

It’s been one of those fortnights this week and when the lights dimmed gravity pulled my eyelids down. That shouldn’t be regarded as a reflection on the show. I was wide awake for the second half and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It could be said you and your farmer have spent quite a bit of money on expensive sleeps over the years but I know the feeling well, as on the night I slept through almost all of Bright Eyes at the Regent in Masterton. I assuaged my guilt by claiming to myself it was safer there than on the drive home.

    I did it through Phantom Of The Opera at the Aotea Centre.

    But sleeping through the stage show of Mama Mia, even part of it HP, how could you?

    All too easily, sadly.
