    I'll start us off eh?
    Reet

    10th March. Edinburgh Playhouse. Omid Djalili.
    We got in just as the support act started but I forgot to find out his name, he was funny! Omid on the other hand was the roy chubby brown for the middle class morons, in other words shit & unfunny!

    12th March. Edinburgh Playhouse. Beyond the Barricade.
    4 singers with 3 backing musicians, doing songs from 'the shows'!
    If you like musicals then this show is for you, 'nuffsaid!

    14th March. Edinburgh Playhouse. French & Saunders.
    More middle class unfunny crap. They even had the audacity to use video clips of sketches inbetween sketches ffs! We left before they did their encore.

    love

    Grim

    My last theatre experience was a Cystoscopy. Not a fun experience.

    My last was to see The Birdcage, it was ok but I despise musicals really.

    Haven't been for ages! Last time I went was to see Alan Bennet's 'History Boys' which I loved, partly due to being a great play and also because the used Headmaster Ritual on the soundtrack!

    Love PTxx.

    February 22nd, Manchester's Palace Theatre, took my girls to see the opening night of 'The Wedding Singer'.
    Very enjoyable (and 1st time I'd been to the venue since March 1985, when a certain band called The Smiths - supported by James - were on stage:)) However, either my legs have grown since then or they have moved the seats even nearer to the row in front:eek:

    "Long Day's Journey Into Night" last year as part of the Dublin theatre Festival. Four hour plus play. Because my seat was double booked, they put me in a private box for the duration. Nice :)
    The farmer from "Babe" was the lead actor.

    My last theatre experience was Mr Nice - An Audience With Howard Marks. If you're not familiar, Howard Marks was once public enemy No.1 in the UK; he was and still is the biggest dope smuggler the UK has ever seen. He's also an Oxford graduate (3 degrees), was on the most wanted list of the FBI, CIA, DEA; had 43 aliases and 25 international companies. He spent 7 years in Terre Haute penitentiary in the US. He is now going straight and spends his time writing books and travel columns for the Observer and has done several successful tours telling the public about his exploits. His show was very entertaining and funny, he is very educated and charismatic and has an amazing tale to tell.

    If OT means overtime, no, I wasn't paid a thing. Nor was it broadcast on the Spanish reality show, OperaciĆ³n Triunfo. At least not to my knowledge. Still, Grim will probably post it on YouTube before too long.

    After a few visits to the hospital recently. All is well but it seems they are determined to find something. Not sure I like where they look. Next is a colonoscopy (again!). Thanks for caring and sorry for the delayed response. Recently, I haven't been trawling this site as much as I have for the previous too many years. Down to around a dozen times a day. More lurker practise required.

    That's funny, we are going to see the Wedding Singer in December, I think, the very same place I first saw The Smiths too!

    Going to see Derek Akorah tomorrow, I have my "Morrissey" seat A24, Julia better not be sitting in it this time! :D

    Erm... well... I have 3 parts: Titania, Hippolyta and Bottom(!).
    Last Saturday we had our costumes on for the first time and my Titania-costume is absolutely beautiful.
    It's a brown/orange dress that has all sorts of flowers sown on to it.
    Also a similar color cape, also with flowers and twigs on it.
    Very heavy because it's made of curtain fabric but it looks amazing!
    Once I have some pictures I'll try and post them.
    We have a new theatre in our town that just opened last week and we're the first ones that will be playing there so it's extra exciting. :guitar:

    Waiting for Godot, at The Library Theatre in Manchester. It was about a fortnight ago. I went with friends, and we all enjoyed it.

    You are going to see Derek Acorah?? I'm so jealous!

    I saw Avenue Q in London last year ...definitely recommend it.

    Going to see Zippy and Bungle next month hopefully :) Oh and Steve Coogan in October.
