Thursday September 9th

I heard about a vintage night in occasion of the 4th birthday of the comedy “The 39 Steps” at Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus. When I arrive there I meet Fleur de Guerre and I thank her because she gave me the contact of the office where I asked for the permission to come and take pictures at the vintage night. John Buchan’s classic novel The 39 Steps has been consistently popular since it was first published in 1915. Two films have been made after and this new version at the theatre mix the previous one. The comedy celebrate 4 years of shows after 95 years since the original novel.

The table in the middle of the room is plenty of small pastry made by The Vintage Patisserie. I taste some of them and to be honest they are too sweet and not really good, but maybe I am too exigent because I am Italian. I don’t think so, anyway. The bartenders are serving vodka and orange juice and three women doing vintage hairdressing  and make up and nice 40’s music by Johnny Vercoutre of Time for Tea.
