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.

Yes, yes!! Monkey magic indeed!
Very cool show....lots of lovely "Monkey" touches. Some great martial arts show-off-ery and acrobaticalness...lovely cossies and sets. Pretty bloody good fun actually!
Only downsides were the fact that we were up in the gods and the show was subtitled so, not only did the subtitles keep going a bit tits-up, they were quite difficult to see too....oh, and the irritating arseholes sat behind us who insisted on giving a running commentary to their kids throughout the whole show.....Yes we can see that Monkey is being cheeky...Yes, He IS a very cheeky monkey isn't he....you twunts!
Also..it finished too soon...I wanted more!

Same here. I was disappointed when the interval turned out to be the end.

I went to see "Ying Tong" last weekend.
It was great!

It's a stage play about Spike Milligan and his struggle with Bipolar disorder.
And of course it largely centres around the Goons too.

I really enjoyed it!






Next weekend I'm going to see the Royal Shakespeare Company production of King Lear with Ian McKellen. I'm looking forward to that too.


I don't usually go to the theatre much but it's all going on at the moment.
Plus I just found out that Spamalot is coming to Melbourne in November so I'm very excited about that! Yay!

A stage adaptation of Almodovar's All About My Mother opens at the Old Vic this Saturday. Stars Diana Rigg & Lesley Manville. Interesting.

Well I'm seeing if my contact in the world of theatre can get hold of some tickets...and if I'm lucky one is yours if you like. (Though I am not really holding out much hope)

Well if I get no luck with my contact, and you really want to go, let me know preferred dates (booking up to 24 Nov) and come pay day I'll see what I can do. I get a bonus next month so might as well spend it on some cultcha.

Mark Gatiss is apparently playing Agrado. That'll be... interesting.

Went to see Chatroom/Citizenship at the National Theatre on Tuesday and cannot recommend the shows highly enough. Whatsonstage have an offer for 15 tickets but the cheapest seats are 10 and the theatre is so small you have a great view anyway.
