Mickey Rooney is doing panto in Bristol

with No Comments

THE RITZ — I remember Mickey Rooney in particular from his cringeworthy portrayal of the upstairs neighbour in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But I know my parents knew him as a child star in better roles.

He’s in Bristol this Christmas. Doing pantomime. With his 8th wife.

Good for him.

Goodness knows where he gets his energy.

The power of reinvention should be a theme for the holidays in 2008. What can you be next year?

I was talking to bankers on Saturday night, after a show at the BAC.

“You guys never set out to be bankers, did you?” Vigorous head-shaking.

“So now the world may get more of you back to do more interesting things in the economy…?” Pause. Vigorous head nodding.

We may all hope that one day we’ll be asked to do Panto in Bristol.

P.S. I fulfilled an entrepreneurial vision finally this morning: I came in early and emptied the bins.
