Good to spy some r3ok participation...

Have you been tempted to engage in any of the audience-participation side of things?
Not sure who around here is still listening to La Tribune but a few thoughts from me anyway...
On my way out I heard someone behind me say to her companion ‘if that’s what they call naked it’s no wonder they were virgins’
It's sold out now, chiz, chiz.
My impression, if you can have an impression of a theatre that's only been open a few months, is that it's always worth ringing the Box Office to see if anything has come back.
Contrary to what I've heard previously, there are still tickets available for L'Ormindo at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Of course they tend to be either the very expensive ones or the standing/restricted view ones, but if you can swing it either way please do come see it. The dress rehearsal last night went down a storm. I think it's a very very good show with excellent performances all around - and the production beautifully demonstrates how the theatre itself can be far more than a historical curiosity.
(Say hi in the Swan afterwards if you're there - I'll probably stop there after most shows.)
Quite so, Don B; indeed, charming and fascinating though the SWT is as a place to visit, seeing a play there makes you very aware of the advantages of modern theatres. The SWT seems to cram the audience into any space available, with little regard for sightlines*. And since the theatre is even smaller than I imagined this reduces the number of seats with perfect views – indeed it might be that, like its parent theatre, the SWT has no seats with perfect views.
Well done, IGI. Indeed, London is the best place to be in your prime years - I lived there for more than 35 of them at Crouch End, Swiss Cottage, Maida Vale, Holland Park
