I fell in love again last night , I’m very fickle .Went to see ‘Le Gateau Chocolat’- he was wonderful . He has loads of hang-ups ,which he talks about …his size ( he’s rotund ,even after loosing 7 stone ), his race ( Nigerian ), his sexuality ( gay ) , his job ( he sings opera in drag ) , his parents ( don’t know he is gay or what he does -but think he might be using his law degree ) and boy can he sing . At times it was very sad ,at times completely uplifting .He got us all up dancing to Madonna’s ‘Holiday .He had his band (dressed in lycra- he loves lycra ), up dancing , he continually changed costumes/wigs etc- every time stripping down to his leotard . Florence and I were lucky enough to be picked on . He held her face in his hands , then held my face to his large, but very firm, chest . He opened with ‘Don’t Rain on my Parade’ by Barbara Steisand ( one of Jane’s favourite songs), did a beautiful version of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ and had us all singing to Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Nothing Compares to you’ .
I must admit ,I had a little weep .
