Not long now

Less than a week to go until I fly off to Karlsruhe to perform my one man show of A Christmas Carol at the Jakobus Theatre. People keep asking me if I'm nervous. The answer is 'not at the moment', more excited about the 'journey' both practical and theatrically speaking and meeting up with my friends from Karlsruhe, having the chance to shine on their stage and a chance to explore the city and its proper German market. I also love their old fashioned trams so will be gliding about town in the big yellow/gold trams and soaking up the atmosphere. A small glass of gluhwein and a bratwurst in a bun might come into the equation.

I am performing on Tuesday and Wednesday night and the second night is sold out already and apparently there aren't many seats left for the Tuesday. Nervous now Herr Lowe? Hmmm. In a good way. After the shows I may well be found in the lovely Cafe Bleu opposite the theatre.

Back here in Blighty I have been going over my script and making sure that all is organised for me in Karlsruhe. As an actor I have also been talking to myself oftmal in the mirror and devising ways of making an entrance. Actually they are doing a fantastic job of promoting my show and I even have ideas of what else I can take over there in the future.

I will be taking my camera so next time around I will be able to show you readers some of the places and people I have visited. If I have time I will be writing a blogpost about German food culture soon.

Hi Phil

Sorry not had chance to listen to the CD all the way through - will probably be a Christmas break leisure treat.

Good luck for the show - and have a wonderful time around the market. Quite fancy a bratwurst or three in a bun.

Have a great trip and I hope it's a huge success.

I spent Christmas with friends in Germany once and the atmosphere and the markets were wonderful.....but don't forget your thermals !!

The last time I saw you on stage, you were brilliant! You will shine to a full house without any doubt. Have a great time and knock 'em out!
