Ahhh, but my dad likes musicals.

And Celine Dion.

And Shirley Bassey.

And Barbara Streisand.

In fact, it's amazing I'm here at all.

I went down to see my mum's am dram production of Pygmalion last week (She was props, scene shifting, publicity and they'd be lost without her, no word of a lie) and it was rather brilliant, even though I'm at a loss as to why they keep casting the woman who cannot act in fairly substantial roles. I mean, seriously CANNOT ACT. She's already ruined two productions with her wooden performances. Anyway, the men were generally better than the women - Alfred Dolittle was splendid and Higgins played creepily by the father of a family my mum used to childmind (Who pretty much acts like that in real life which makes it even creepier). Good solid entertainment, but they need to work out their staging better and maybe lobby the centre for a stage with proper wings.

Just saw Inherit The Wind starring Christopher Plummer & Brian Dennehy. Of course both these actors were great, but Christopher Plummer is beyond excellent, especially being right there on stage with him. Oh, we had onstage seating which was very fun & exciting and also a bit odd during the trial when there were some actors scattered about that were very boisterous.

It's been a while since I was exposed to this story. Given that factor & also being in the action (so to speak) gives me a real interesting perspective on it. You can actually totally understand what these townspeople were thinking at that time. It must have really shaken their world to have someone say something so "blashpemous". WJB had no excuse being an "intellegent" man though.

Oh....Bub from Day Of The Dead was one of the townsfolk. How bizarre, eh? Watching him, he was totally playing Bub. He is also the understudy for Christopher Plummer's role. Wow, that would be impressive to see.

Last time I went to the theatre I passed Mark Heap in Southbank! I went to see 'A Matter of Life and Death' which there is also a film of (David Niven), great play. I just wish they wouldn't try and put a message/moral where the original story doesn't have one.

I should have posted something in this thread long before now... thought I had. Ah well.

I've only been to the theatre a scant few times, for shame, as I've always absolutely loved it. Mostly music-based shows,: Oliver! at London Palladium, Blood Brothers, Blues Brothers and See You Next Tuesday (originally the excellent French stageplay & film Le Diner De Cons).

I really want to do the whole theatre thing a damn sight more often, I've just never had the opportunity to go with anyone else who didn't laugh in my face at the suggestion. I spied a brochure for the Old Vic Theatre at Ellie's after the Trafalgar meet, and that planted the idea in my noggin to start scouting what shows are on in London. Not wanting to omit local theatres in Norfolk though, as there's a great outdoor amphitheatre-style venue not 20 minutes away from home that just so happens to be putting on a production of Little Shop Of Horrors throughout my week off in August. Just might be booking a ticket for that.

I really have to get my arse in gear and tickets for that, the Festival Theatre is less than a mile from my front door! (He's also doing Twelfth Night this summer as well).

Monkey:The Opera

I went too. It was the story of Monkey's quest for enlightenment writ large, from the egg to his journey to paradise, with Tripitaka, Pigsy, Sandy and the horse. Interspersing the live action towards the start there were a couple of beautiful animated sequences by Jamie Hewlett, which were well integrated and added to the whole experience. The whole cast was excellent, particularly the guy playing Monkey who was outstanding.

There were only two downsides - the subtitles didn't work properly (although it may have just been teething trouble), and the audience kept applauding any show of acrobatic skill which made parts of it feel a bit like a royal variety performance.

That said, it was marvellous.
