I watched BBC's program about the life of Michael Crawford last night. He looks at life through a happiness telescope, rather like his well-loved character in the comedy series Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. See the story in Michael's own words here.
Michael Crawford, star of West End blockbusters Barnum, The Woman In White, and The Phantom Of The Opera is back on stage for the first time in seven years. He’s playing The Wizard of Oz in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s lavish new production at the London Palladium.
He moved to New Zealand, changed his diet, exercise and routine, and after four years, decided he wanted to work again. After Andrew Lloyd Webber contacted him about a new role, Michael accepted the part and has given his magical character new vitality in The Wizard of Oz.
Could you imagine how life would look through a cherished child's eyes? Everything would fill you with wonder. You'd have time to play and dream. Life would beckon you on to learn and explore. Everything could be fixed and transformed. What's stopping you?
