OUR WORLD - Theatre

A different part of my world in our world is going to the theatre especially in winter time.
This time I saw the play The 39 steps which also had been adapted as a film by Hitchcock.
The Theatre called "Le Public" is in Brussels, and because of the lack of parking spaces in front of the theatre a shuttle picked us up outside a car park.
Once inside you have the opportunity to have a glass at the bar or a supper in the restaurant, because you have to go through both on your way to the Theatre hall. I had never been in such a cosy Theatre. Of course you can also eat and drink after the play.
Pictures of actors were hanging on the walls.
Behind this nice painting was the cloakroom
The entrance to the theatre room
where the decorations for the different plays were standing just there. You can see a pile of suitcases on the left.
The stage was in the middle and we spectators were sitting all around. The seats were not numbered and I was lucky that we had catched a seat in the last row, because at least we had a nice overlook on the whole stage. The once sitting in the first row had to turn their heads all the time to follow the actions !
The room had a curved ceiling and was supported by metallic columns fortunately not too large so that they didn't disturb the view.

and the 4 actors who kept our attention for 2 h !!
It was a very pleasant evening !
