My love affair with Theatre started over thirty years ago (Plays only) and in that time , I have been priviledged to see many excellent productions and acting of the finest quality. On Saturday I saw both in GASLIGHT. I hope others were as moved and thrilled, and is not this the essence of theatre, to find your self being drawn into the comedy or drama being played out on that stage. No matter how many times I go to the theatre, I still experience the same sense of excitement as the lights go down and I hope I always will, for two hours of magic!

Like me, Whittlebot, your enlightened parents took you to the theatre as a toddler.

My theatre-going life started only 18 months ago, just before I turned 16, and it is now the greatest passion in my life.  In those 18 months, I've seen over 60 productions, with the defining moment of my theatre-going career being the National Theatre of Scotland's 'Black Watch'.  I saw its second ever performance in Edinburgh and was blown away. I was lucky enough to catch it in Glasgow on its Scottish tour and it was even better. I listened to the Radio 3 production and will be watching it on TV next week.
I'm so glad that it will finally get a London run, as everyone deserves to see it.

Yep Whittlebot, Gaslight absolutely enthralled me and my friend too.  One of the best plays I have seen in a long time with all the actors giving excellent performances.  

BTW, If you liked Gaslight, you may also want to watch 'Twenty thousand streets under the sky', a BBC adaptation of Patrick Hamilton's excellent London trilogy.  It's very good.
