1. The mini-Travoltas take their seat for the show.


2. A cheeky fan seizes the opportunity to get hold of the star.


A man asked Travolta to teach his wife to dance, of course he said yes.

3. More people got dance lessons.


Is that Minnie Driver?

5. There was cake.


Travolta was presented with a cake for his 60th birthday by co-producers Rocco Buonvino and Joe Ricotta. He also received an award for entry into the gallery of greats who have performed at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, this was presented by Really Useful Group managing director Bishu Chakraborty.

6. Some more dancing...


He just couldn't get enough of dancing with everyone, and he still has the moves

7. "I want to sleep with the whole audience''


Travolta told the audience he wanted to sleep with them all and when asked why he had seven airplanes, he replied it was so that he could fly everyone back to his house in LA.

8. "I'd love to do more musicals"


The star admitted he would love to be in another musical if the right part came up. When quizzed by Norman about "doing a part in drag" he replied " I wasn't in drag, I played a woman!"
