Yes it's already
been another ten shows for me, I don't think I can do this meme every ten or it'll get boring very quickly! Maybe when I'm about twenty more shows in the future someone can randomly remind me to do it again, so I won't know in advance which question will go with which show. Ha! As if anyone would remember to do that. Anyway here's the last ten trips summarised at random:List the last 10 things you saw at the theatre in order:
(Lyttelton, National Theatre)
(Apollo Shaftesbury Avenue)
(Queen's Head Pub)
(Olivier, National Theatre)
7.The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
8.Sign of the Times
(Southwark Playhouse)Who was the best performer in number one (Greenland)?
Most of the cast were good - those who weren't lumbered with insufferable characters inevitably came off better.Why did you go to see number two (Fen)?
There's often some unexpectedly good stuff at the Finborough, and I feel like I should have seen more Caryl Churchill plays than I have.Can you remember a line/lyric from number three (Blithe Spirit) that you liked?
Not a full line but the phrase "Cosmic bigamist" to describe a man living with his second wife and the ghost of his first one amused me.What would you give number four (GOTCHA) out of ten?
About a 6 or 7 - good, not great.Was there someone hot in number five (Honest)?
I've not been attracted to Trystan Gravelle (the only actor in this) when I've seen him before, like in the Globe's Love's Labour's Lost
, but he's rather charming and dashing here, so yes.What was number six (Frankenstein) about?
Jonny Lee Miller's quivering buttocks. It's Frankenstein
, have a guess what it's about.Who was your favourite actor in number seven (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee)?
A tie between Chris Carswell and Iris Roberts.What was your favourite bit in number eight (Sign of the Times)?
The collapsing illuminated "O" near the end.Would you see number nine (Mogadishu) again?
It was very good, but probably not.What was the worst thing about number ten (8 Women)?
The set/seating layout that put some crucial scenes behind the audience.Which was best?
For sheer spectacle Frankenstein
but the actual play was weak; Mogadishu
were stronger in that respect.Which was worst?
Another tie, Sign of the Times
and 8 WomenDid any make you cry?
No.Did any make you laugh?The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
made me laugh lots. Blithe Spirit should
have made me laugh a lot more than it did.Which roles would you like to play in any of them?
The role of Rhys Rusbatch's lycra diving suit in Greenland
. What?Which one did you have best seats for?Frankenstein
- technically cheapo seats a bit too close to the stage but in practice it's right in the middle of the action.
