Just seen your message. Yes it does seem that Watford is getting the Scarborough cast. Alan does seem to have a reputauion to keep up.
I see that I now have two theatre trips over in Watford next month. I will be writing about them on this thread.
Just wondering if any theatre goers here have been able to access the Whatsonstage website this week ?, I haven't been able to since last weekend
Have booked my Chichester Festival: Wonderful Year for Plums, Way of the World, Private Lives, Patricia Routledge's one woman show, plus also trotting off to The Recruiting Officer at the Donmar, Kingston for Michael Frayn's Here and the Young Vic's Bingo. Quite an expensive few months, no summer holiday for me..
Collaborators - terrific piece of work, really enjoyed it. The National really has had an excellent couple of seasons.
That's a fantastic set
I went to The Space in Docklands, not a theatre I'd visited before, to see The Two Noble Kinsmen , Shakespeare's least-known play which I was amused to discover has exactly the same plot as everyon's favourite story from Dead of Night. Though with rather more half-naked wrestling than golf
Don't think I can match half-naked wrestling but I saw She Stoops To Conquer at the National Theatre yesterday, great fun and the cast are universally excellent as is the set.
Nothing earth shattering about it but excellent entertainment
If you get the chance to see it please do.
Travelling Light, a sort of cross between Fiddler on the Roof and a Kevin Brownlow documentary, which had us muttering in the interval about the ludicrousness of people making 20 minute films in 1896. The actual films were rather marvellous though.
That Mother Courage was terrible. Two hours to the interval, when we escaped. Nothing against Fiona Shaw or the play, which I've seen before with Kathryn Hunter and Diana Quick, and it was good. But adding Duke Special and a load of noise was just ... not good.
Really pleased to see the excellent reviews for the Menier's revival of Abigail's Party hopefully West End bound ( ideally to one of the smaller intimate theatres like the Duchess ) as someone forgot to book tickets for SE1
