Theatre Anyone?

Post by Rowan » Mon September 26th, 2011, 2:09 pm

If any of you (in the US) attend the theatre to see the works coming out of Broadway, I highly recommend The Addams Family. It began the national tour here in New Orleans last week and I had the privilege to see the show a few times as I usher for the theatre in which it was staged. It is a fantastic show, but don't expect that it will be like the tv show. The writers based the show on the original comics of Charles Addams.

da-da-da-DUM!

There's a new production of "The Lion in Winter" coming on in London, with Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley.

I love the theatre! But I rarely go.

I quit going because of the expense, LH, but then I discovered ushering. Very simple "work" for a lot of reward: I get to see each production free as many times as I want and also get a discount on the merchandise. :)

Thanks for the tip, Rowan. Don't think our area community theater group has ushers though. For serious theater I'd have to travel a few hours.

I'm a big fan of ballet too. Looking forward to the new season from the North Carolina Dance Theatre in Charlotte.

I keep seeing the ads for this and really must try and see it. I have a very soft spot for "Wolfie" and I know that many people didn't, but I liked the film, being a big fan of Katherine Hepburn.

But mostly I go to see fringe productions of which there are usually quite a few in my neck of the woods. Most of them are pretty good and some of them are really really good.
