We were all madly checking our phones for news in the bars afterwards, but while much of last night's Westminster drama was going on, at Wilton's Music Hall, we were getting to glorious grip with the (affectionate) comedy potential of the monarchy with The Crown Dual.
I've seen Rufus Norris' multi-award-winning revival of Kander & Ebb's Broadway musical classic Cabaret twice before in the West End, when it first opened in 2006 and when it returned in 2010. It now kicks off a brand-new tour and it's more powerful than ever.
Michael John LaChiusa was on his way back to the States by the time I chaired my post-show Q&A at the West End (and UK) premiere of his musical Queen Of The Mist - but I wonder if his ears were burning badly en route?
