Lords and Ladies - the stage show

Postby Slobberchops » Sun Jun 05, 2011 8:55 pm

I am hoping to direct a stage version of Lords and Ladies.
Would anyone like to suggest music for this?

If you have seen a stage show of Lords and Ladies, I would be glad to hear what you thought of it.

First off, no need to yell :shock:
Second: Hello and welcome to them forum.
Third: I'd rather suggest getting the actual basics done first (actors etc) before concerning oneself with music (which isn't actually that needed. Granted, in this story there are two bits where it is, but aside from that)

Welcome, Slobberchops! :D What kind of music did you have in mind? What about Enya? Too cliché?
Listen.

I saw Stephen Briggs crowd do it a few years back, can't remember the music though.

Enjoyable but its the way its acted and presented that comes across the most. They keep props and scenery to a minimum and excel at the characters (same people have played the witches in different plays and they really work well together).

I've also seen The Random Salad Company do a few Discworld productions and they use modern music in various situations and its always really well done.

they are doing Jingo next... http://www.newtheatreroyal.com/index.php/whats-on/jingo

Thanks for all that. And I wish I could see the Portsmouth production, but sadly, I can't. If there are any other shows going on, I'd be glad to know about them.

Hi SC

How about some Pixies or E.L.F or Queen? :lol:

Queen?

Seriously..... go through the Queen song list and tell me there aren't at least 30 songs that could directly refer to Lords & Ladies! :D :D :D
