Hello there - well i'm offa to London in May and i'm gonna check in to see this play at the NT (like a luvvie) ... if you like the wonderful Jim Broadbent, the beauteous Rachel Stirling, classic British Horror and/or Vincent Price movies like i do, why not check it out the new version of Theatre of Blood.

Music is by Joby Talbot of the Divine COmedy who also did the music for League of Gentlemen.

Which leads me to thisssssssssss ... Frightfest 2005 - which includes a preview of League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse and From Beyond the Grave double bill. Hopefully i will see this too - 28th May ...

I KNOW!!! It is 36 a ticket but i figure you would pay that to see a second rate indie band festival date thing. And i doubt Broadbent would dissappoint!!! I mean - the murders would be fabulous ... i can't think of anyone better to take on the role actually.

Pretty damn cool! I see that Stirling wub.gif is playing the same part that her mother (Diana Rigg wub.gif ) played in the 1973 original.

on a vaguely related note ... Woman In Black is a brilliant production. I can't remember the name of the theatre now, but its been running for donkey's years, and is superbly simple and frightening in equal measures. Definitely worth a viewing!

Also the book is pretty good as well.

edit - its in London by the way.

Its a shame the NT isnt an old skool theatre...the finale in the old theatre could have been very interesting....the theatre you are watching it in becomes the set.

Yeah - how cool would that have been - like that Batchelorette video for Bjork - a theatre in a theatre.

Rachael Stirling is the ONLY person to play any of her mum's roles. She is utterly lovely.
