Nice. Enjoy, everyone who can go.

But I seriously start to think he has set up a second domicile in the UK...

Sigh

In that case, maybe I should be looking at boats instead of campers.

It seems that Dirk is taking over from Luke Perry who due to minor illness is unable to travel and had to drop out:

Hi You all!!!

I went from the Netherlands to see King Rat on December 24th. And I also arranged a private meet with Dirk with my family. It was really great. We spoke aprox 15 minutes with Dirk after the show. He was so kind as to make some time for us eventough he actually normally sleeps betweens the 2 shows. He was really kind and fun.

We also got a backstage tour and my son (8, and also into theatre-school) found himself standing on stage before an (empty) theatre of 1500 seats.

Although my kids speak no English yet they did understand a lot (I told them the story before going to London...)

Soooo 2 wishes granted (seeing Dirk perform on stage AND meeting him in person and private I am Happy
