Now, variety and off to the theatre.

1. I like to meet artists who talk about how important it is to live now.

2. I interview Debbie Reynolds about the variety show she is bringing to Tunbridge Wells Assembly Hall on April 10, and she talks about what a blessing it is to be a mother: "My daughter is Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher..."

3. We eat our supper quickly, and hurry out to the theatre. It's Blood Brothers -- Willie Russell's musical tragedy. The first half is a bit of a love letter to a deprived Liverpool childhood.

PS: Here's a short Debbie Reynolds playlist for anyone who does Spotify!
