One of the thrills of my travels was going to live shows in London's West End and New York's Broadway.  When by pure coincidence, we came across news that Dame Helen Mirren, my favourite actress, would preform live in London, I immediately booked a flight from Geneva to London, even to stay merely for 2 nights in London (in the middle of my Swiss trip).  There is something about live performance that can move one to the core, that one simply does not have from a televised performance.
