No movie can compare with seeing Macbeth performed in the theatre... more atmospheric....
I've not seen that many performances in the theatre. A couple of them were in high school. The Importance of Being Earnest
and Mrs Warren's Profession
were forgettable, as far as I, the teenaged Quatermass, was concerned, although I did like The Merchant of Venice
However, I have also seen a decently done performance of Maskerade
done at a Gold Coast theatre, a rather more hard to praise performance of Spamalot
at another theatre on the Gold Coast (I had issues more with Spamalot
itself rather than the actors' performances), and a surprisingly entertaining pantomime of Jack and the Beanstalk
in Bath. I watched it mostly because Colin Baker was in it, and (I know I've said this before) you haven't heard anything until you heard him sing Time Warp
from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
BTW, nice Mr Bean Avatar, Del.
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
