I didn't know this thread was here.
Spider-Man on Broadway about 2 months ago when I went to New York. It was great.
Lion King - several times. My favorite live play of all time. You can see it in Vegas and NY, but I also caught it in San Diego.
Rounding Third - a play about baseball. I loved it. Very funny, too.
Deathtrap - a play my friend Charles acted in. Very good.
I'm not sure, but I think I've seen other productions as well. But I love live theater.
I want to see Cats but I never have.
I think Batman would make a great live theater show.
I saw my first version of A Chorus Line last night, and it was excellent. A couple weeks back, a high school production of Bullshot Crummond, a very funny farce/parody of 1930s detective mysteries; well done, especially for HS.
So I see Rock of Ages at the end of the month when I get back from baseball in Arizona.
The movie is also coming out with Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta Jones, Alec Baldwin, and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad).
But I will see it live.
I think I have a date.
I invited one lady who is a friend over a year ago when we tried to go, but I'd read the date wrong by 365 days!
She and I are barely in touch now. I invited her as a friend but she is about 6-7 years older than me and I'm not interested and she is less social as she must have been interested, but realized I like girls who are nearly 20 years younger than me now.
I have 2 girls about 20 years younger than me (it's about 17 year difference in age and they're legal age and all - 21 years plus) and one may think she's going with me already, but I want to see if I get the opportunity to ask the other one who's even hotter and I haven't been with yet.
I'm going to try for "girl no. 3" I guess. But it's kind of making this a more difficult situation than I'd like - namely because for a romantic comedy theater play (and I have front orchestra seats - so I did pay a lot for these tickets) I want it to be the best night possible.That means taking the girl I'm most into.
Problem with girl No. 3 is that there are girls numbers 4 and 5 who are her friends, and they could possibly like me - well they act like it, hugging me and texting me, etc.
With this kind of thing (the play and a fancy evening) I will most definitely go from 5 ladies (4 of possible interest to me) down to 1 VERY fast.
Remember when it was just about enjoying theater? But Spider-Man and Lion King were not romantic plays and Rock of Ages kind of is (like bringing a date to a make-out movie - and it actually WILL be in the movie theaters THIS YEAR too.
What to do??? What to do???
Oh, crap! There's actually a 6th girl who's pretty hot, too. I totally forgot I asked her. But she's a player and wants to share a cake with me to seal the deal. I need to try that (black forest chocolate) and see what happens. I forgot as she just had said that before I went out of town last weekend.
Right now, I just hope I don't wind up going alone because I misread the whole situation.
Last weekend, I was at the Redlands Shakespeare Festival and saw... Avenue Q. :eek: Kidding, kidding. It was Much Ado About Nothing; don't get so worked up about trivial things, people. :rolleyes: A couple people I know were either in the Pre-Show Players warm-up or actors in the play itself. Quite funny. I guess I've gotten used to dramas and tragedies from the Bard.
Rock of Ages the movie will be out June 15.
I saw the live theater production of it, of course. And it is awesome!
You can't compare the experience of live, interactive theater, with a movie.
However, I will definitely go and see the movie, too.
The play handled the treatment of the story so well!
I am double-cast as the Bailiff and Boo Radley in TKAM. Rehearsals started last week, first shows in early November. :pleased:
Cool! Community theater has a good following in my town. Hopefully in your town as well.

That's awesome Bel-Cam Jos.
Acting is fun, huh? Well, I like getting to play a character that I wrote or that I specifically auditioned for.
But then Tom would chop YOU up! :Moebiuscircle: :eek:

Each time we run the scenes with Boo Radley, in my head I keep hearing the Sideshow Bob line from the Simpsons episode where he and Sideshow Cecil try to blow up the dam: "But I saved, the chidlren's lives!" :D Have to be off-book starting next week. :eek:
