Going to the theatre?
Spaceship Dispatcher
Have just made theatre booking #4 for the year! Has anyone else here got shows or plays booked?

My schedule so far is:

The Three Sisters at Southwark Playhouse starring Paul McGann, Olivia Hallinan and Holliday Grainger
Relative Values at the Harold Pinter theatre starring Caroline Quentin and featuring Stephen Pacey
Black Coffee at Milton Keynes theatre starring Robert Powell, as Poirot, and Liza Goddard
Skylight at Wyndhams starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan

TTS was brilliant, a really good start to the year's theatre trips made even better by meeting Olivia and Holly after show albeit briefly. RV is coming up this Wednesday with Brad, Paula, Ellen and trevor travis. BC is the one booked this evening, a performance of Agatha Christie's first play, and then in June the chance to see Bill and Carey on stage is already looking like one of the highlights if all goes well...

Theatre is one of my main passions in life, albeit limited to watching only, and this year's looking good! Grin

Well, cast in our local theater is not as exclusive as yours (I havë to involve a price for flight ticket to the theater as well when I want to see something in London Grin ) but I love theater and go to see plays anytime I can. Our theater culture here is actually really...well, fantastic. I am surprised how many theater companies are here....even in my small town, we used to have a small company - before they made necessary reconstructions to our theater building (from 19th century Smile), they used to have even exclusive premieres...in an old warehouse. Thatīs why I love theater - you can watch it (and make it) anywhere, as long as people are ready to do it.
However, we have a building but not a stable cast in it. But actors from all country have plays a few times a month, and there are concerts and some of local amateur theater groups hosting there as well.


I donīt have anything prepaid (my mum has but she has already retired so she has time to go Grin ) but I bought a ticket for the end of April - ironically also for one of Chehkovīs plays - The Seagull.
It is a group of our best (seriously, the best) theater group in the Czech Republic. They are the "pool" for our best actors right now and I often feel bad for them because they do it all in Czech. My most faovurite Czech actor - Ivan Trojan - is a member of this group and our most sought after actor. He is brilliant.
I saw also their version of "Dealerīs choice" (by Patrick Marber) and I was stunned. Brilliant.

This is them, btw. (in English Wink):

(and my favourite Czech theater actor Smile):

I think you could "check him out" in the movie "In the Shadow". It was a very successful movie a few years back about 50s in Czechoslovakia, in the time of deep communism and communistic trials...

Anywaaay...Grin (sorry, patriotic again Grin)

I also like musicals. I am not an expert but I enjoy a good musical. I think the last one I saw was "Jesus Christ Superstar" and I am trying to get tickets to an opening night of "Addams Family". It has never been shown here, so the tickets will be difficult to get Smile Fortunately, I have a friend who works in a musical theater in Prague...Grin (she is a Whovian, too Grin )

Ah... musicals. Have never really enjoyed musical movies and was looking forward to going to watch The Sound of Music with my parents with a high degree of trepidation and dread, but actually quite enjoyed it. Since then I have seen Little Shop of Horrors starring Sylvester McCoy, and Legally Blonde starring Sheridan Smith and Peter Davison, and realised that musical theatre can be a lot more engaging than on film! Went to see Top Hat too, but that really was awful - even Mum agreed! - so its 3 out of 4 decent musical shows so far for me...

Have just got back this evening from a trip to Cheltenham Playhouse to see an amateur production of Pratchett's 'Lords and Ladies'. I hasten to add that 'amateur' is not a derogatory term in this instance; the principles were all excellent and a number of the supporting cast and extras were equally good. Especial praise to all three of the witches, who pretty much embodied the characters as I have always seen them in my mind, the lad who played Shawn Ogg with superb comic timing and real drama in the torture scene, and a young lady who, despite her gender and age, made a fantastic Casanunda, expert swordsman, consummate liar, world's 2nd greatest lover (I try harder) and stepladder repairman.

The set design, costumes, props, lighting and direction made superb use of the space and the audience were really entertained.

I don't get to watch productions as often as I'd wish, but this one made the journey well worthwhile.

Just booked my ticket to see this interesting new science fiction/space fantasy play at the Royal Court Theatre next week:

X

Very unusual to see SF on the stage! This one has a Doctor Who connection too as it stars Jessica Raine (Hide, An Adventure in Space and Time)

Sounds interesting.

I seem to need Horizon to push me into going to the theatre, most of my trips in the last few years have been ones organised on here. Looking forward to Travels With My Aunt in June.

Jessica Raine was excellent, but X was awful. An incoherent and very second rate Solaris rip-off, filled with tedious exposition about a wholly irrelevant backstory, and in which 'high drama' is basically just the actors screaming swear words at each other. The play described the descent into pitiful and hopeless insanity by a group of people without control over their predicament, although whether that was the characters or the audience is open to question.

However, and admittedly this is film rather than theatre, I have just booked a ticket to see the well regarded Hammer film Twins of Evil at my local specialist cinema! A very rare opportunity...
