Theatre reviews

As we have cinema, gigs and music reviews, I thought we could have a theatre review thread too.

And I will begin…

I went to see A Life in the Theatre last night, with Patrick Stewart and Joshua Jackson.

It’s the story of 2 actors, one old and one young; the flailing careers of the former and the progression of the latter. It’s very funny in parts, and also very sad in others.

Steward was brilliant as the tragic-comedy figure, evoking sympathy, and irritation, at the same time. And Jackson was also very good, the evolving confidence of his character was very well portrayed.

I do recommend it…

(and, for the girls, both actors get their kit off).

Jackson is the bloke from Dawson's Creek isn't he. Seen him ina few things - he's a pretty decent actor. Have read some pretty scathing reviews about this though.

Ahem. Artistic reasons?

The only play I have seen was a couple of years ago and Freddie Prinze Jnr was starring, he was smoking weed on stage.

Well, not totally starkers, just with pants on.

And as for the bad reviews, I wasn't looking forward to seeing it either, but was pleasantly suprised.

It was called 'This is our youth', starring Freddie Prinze Jr, Chris Klein (of American Pie fame) and Heather Burns.

Set in 1982 at the dawn of the Regan era, Kenneth Lonergan's first play depicts forty-eight hours in the lives of Dennie, Warren and Jessica - three rich and bored middle-class teenagers from New York's Upper West Side.

Caught up in the new yuppie culture (for which money, power and success are all), they have stolen $15,000 from their parents without much of an idea of what to do with it. So, without a care for the consequences, they blow it all on a reckless, hedonistic spending spree!

This is Our Youth is a tragicomic portrayal of youth on the brink of adulthood and reveals the ache at the heart of the slacker generation.

Dont know if its still showing anywhere but it was very good

I went to see Festen last week.

The film is incredible. The play was excellent.

Good ensemble acting, skilled, smooth direction.

Set at the birthday party of a successful man, his disfunctional family causing skeletons to come flailing out of cupboards. His Hamlet-like son making mayhem as the evening disintegrates, the spectre of his dead sister present like Macbeth's ghost.

Recommended, though more pricey than even the football.

Digging up a very old thread but.....

Went to see 6 characters at the Gielgud, modern take on the 1920s Pirandello classic.

Genius. Highly recommended. Ian McDiarmid was superb as the father. Amazed something this imaginative made it to the west end.

Fat Pig was the last thing I saw.
When it had Stacy in, rather than Kelly Brook.

Was quite good.

LAst proper play I saw was Shopping & F***ing, heres what wiki says

"The sexual violence of Shopping and ••••••• explores what is possible if consumerism supersedes all other moral codes. To this effect everything, included sex, violence and drugs, is reduced to a mere transaction in an age where shopping centres are the new cathedrals of Western consumerism. Such sadistic violence recalls the "aesthetic" of the Marquis de Sade, wherein, in the absence of religion, there are no moral absolutes. The hyper-consumerist tone of the play echoes the Capitalisme sauvage of Thatcherist ideology"

heres what paf says.

A bloke got his cock out and stuck it in mans bottom on stage.

I watched it on Friday with Kelly Brook.
Very much enjoyed it with Kevin Bishop being the wacky best make and Heffs was good too. Kelly looked great in her 2 piece.

The worst thing was the little spoiled girl in the front constantly playing with her crackberry and the ending was very sharp.

Was nice to see something without any singing in for a change

7/10.

Most recent play I saw was Under The Blue Sky. Catherine Tate was in it. It was ok but I've seen much better.

Going to see Ivanov with Kenneth Branagh & Gina McKee at the end of November. Was lucky to get tickets as it's the must-see play of the moment in the West End and has received rave reviews.

And if you don't mind me jumping in then I'd also like to go but I fancy (and this may not be fashionable in theatreland) a murder mystery or a 'thriller' in the usual film sense. Any ideas?
