As this little part of the forum seems to be flourishing today, I thought I'd ask if anyone has been to the theatre lately. Me, personally, have seen a grand total of one play in my life - Mamma Mia!

Anyone beat that?

Sorry, can't say I've had the pleasure!

Haven't been to the theatre for many years. Think last one was about 15 years ago to watch Aladin! Did see Henry IV Part II when I was at school.

Well, I am a boring old f**t and say no thanks when people go to the theatre from work.

I only went because I got a free ticket but, saying that, I really enjoyed the play. I didn't think I would - I could well imagine me sitting there stifling a yawn and looking at my watch every five minutes - but it was well worth it in the end.

Last time I went to the theatre, it was to see two short playlets based on Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament and The Body Politic from Clive Barker's The Books of Blood.

Barker, himself, was in the small room that night, having flown over from the US to see it performed in Glasgow. He got pride of place in the theatre and sat there in the darkness, his "husband" holding him very tight.

I've seen My Fair Lady, Art, Reduced Shakespeare (does that count?) and Les Mis (great one, that). All of these were at least 3 years ago. Oh, and I saw something at the RSC in Stratford, but not by Shakespeare.

The latest play I saw has been 'Puntila and Matti, his Hired Man' by Bertold Brecht. Apart from that, I've seen only 'the rats' by Gerhart Hauptmann.

I actually really enjoy theaters (apart from the ever-uncomfortable seats...). Somehow the minimal background/stage helps concentrating on the actors, and the distance to the acting is very close, as compared to the cinema. But I end up going to the cinema more often... it's just easier to convince some friends to join...
