The Seoul Arts Centre is currently showing The Gambler, a story, I am told, based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Player. This musical was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon with lots of energy, music and dance. The prima dona, 최정원 (Choi Jung Won) was absolutely superb with an inspiring singing voice. The Casino Boss, Duchess, and the Gambler were also great as well as the comedy relief offered by a magnaminous Gigi. A great way to skip work and bludge away the afternoon (which I did).

And special thanks to you who provided the tickets for me and my friend for coming along with me.
