The whole history of theatre and you guys and girls can't keep this on the board can you just imagine if a thread was called SOUNDTRACK TALK, and it would vanish, There are thousand's and thousand's of things to discuss about theatre BROADWAY OFF BROADWAY WEST END ETC ETC. I get it, your all at the theatre now so no one can comment, Anyway my line producer on a few films of mine who was also an actor who was the lead in EQUS [OFF BROADWAY] ALSO WAS IN FILMS LIKE ROBOT HOLOCAUST , BREEDERS, CHUD etc etc etc, had A DEEP INTEREST IN CHRISTINE LAHTI, she was in a play on BROADWAY BACK IN THE LATE 80'S and many a night when he had free time in his busy life, he would wait outside the stage door and try to get to talk to her. Actually give her a screenplay he wrote called LITTLE DEBBIE'S[YES we talked to the minister who owned that cake brand to get the rights to the character.]the screenplay was based around the cake's character, He wanted CHRISTINE to play LITTLE DEBBIE'S MOTHER.I THINK HE FINALLY GOT TO HER THROUGH HER AGENT, BUT THE FILM NEVER CAME THROUGH.I personally never cared for those cakes.but i would have ate a million of them if the film got made and was a hit.

Dan - don't be a twat - sometimes threads just run out...that's the way it goes. People lose interest...that's the way it goes. Someone will ressurrect it in a few months/years....that's the way it goes. But having a whinge at people again because no-one is posting in your thread?

I have plenty to say about theater. For example, the pretentious way it's spelled in the thread's title. Seriously, though, I have been going to and performing in theatrical productions, since the 1950s. There is too much to say. If someone mentions a production I saw, I'll add my 2 cents.

Pretentious?!!
You crazy luvvies and your 'American English'...

I've seen a few stage productions of the comedy farce 'Run For Your Wife' in my time. Most memorably starring Eric Sykes, which was chaotic and hilarious. However this new British film version looks horrendous. Danny Dyer? Sarah Harding? Yuck...one to avoid at all costs I imagine.

Looks like my advice was well heeded. £602 box office in the first week!

So your into putting curses on shows, shame on you[joking] By the way again a apology for your car, you see a few weeks ago i took a plane to your country. i was going to take a boat, but you know these days you may not be able to go to the john or eat a good meal for days and then you have to pay your lawyer for help and all, you know how it is. So anyway when i got there when i took the car out i forgot where i was and drove on the wrong side of the road.

Without question, the worst thing I ever experienced. It was absolutely horrible. It had only one moment and that was Lee Remick performing the title tune. I've never seen a show that was so, universally hated by its audience. People booed and walked-out, multiple times. It did have some really good choreography, however. I saw it in previews in Philadelphia, so I have no idea what played in New York. Given that it was a tremendous bomb, I imagine the same crap we saw. The only other show that I recall being as bad (also seen in previews in Philadelphia), was THE WIZ. Given its great success on Broadway, I can only imagine they made lots of changes. It was horrid, in Philadelphia. Like ANYONE CAN WHISTLE, Not something I would even consider seeing again.

Well, when I saw a tryout of COMPANY in Boston, audiences were likewise walking out. Elaine Stritch was possibly drunk, kind of slurry, and the conductor was cueing her on "The Ladies Who Lunch," and Bobby met a pretty blonde woman in a sheepskin coat at the top of the Empire State Building at the end....

And lots of people were walking out, particularly during the second act, which was interminable.

I bet ANYONE CAN WHISTLE would do well in colleges and high schools. They love to glorify crazy people...

I kind of found COMPANY interminable when I saw it in NY. Hate the show. Being in it, didn't change my mind about it. I dislike all Sondheim shows, with the exception of FOLLIES (the original, only), which I loved. I kind of liked EVENING PRIMROSE, when it originally aired. However, that had more to do with the fact that it was the very first thing I watched on the color television I had purchased for my bedroom.

I recently watched a BBC documentary about the career of Michael Crawford in film, stage and television. The programme showed some clips of him performing in 'Barnum', which looked very daring and entertaining. I've never seen the show, but I sure would like to. Is there any chance someone (Kritzerland, maybe) could reissue the OLC recording?

The London cast album is currently available for download on iTunes @ £7.99

The show was also taped for television and the DVD is available from Amazon.

Interesting to read that MISS SAIGON will return in a new production at Prince Edward Theatre in the West End next year featuring a new song.

I've seen the show a few times, always enjoyed Act 1 but Act 2 just seems to drag and fizzle out. An average score, too many songs sound alike and go nowhere. Still, hopefully I'll get to see this new production.
