So, what have folk seen recently? One Man, Two Guvnors for me this evening - great to see Tom back as Alfie.
To be fair, the "General Chat" description doesn't say things have to be intrinsically theatre related...

Ive not seen 1M2G yet.... not copnvinced its for me. Slapstick never works for me, one of the many reasons i avoid panto!
'O' Nice to see you... Hope all is good with you!! Very Bond sounding i must say.
I'm off to see Sweet Smell of Success next week and really looking forward to it - also booked to go and see The Book of Mormon twice in February (it was SOOOOO good in NYC) Also want to go and see The Bodyguard, but something tells me i wont like it....

Is that acceptable conversation for this spanking new bar?

I can't stand slapstick, and but I loved 1M2G - I think it's got enough humour and plot besides the slapstick that it just pulls you in.

Large glass of rose and one for the barman.

Feeling very smug at present over my choice of London shows for January, all booked pre-opening, and three receiving great acclaim:- Kiss Me Kate at the Old Vic, Merrily We Roll at the Menier (but ouch at the ticket price), and Dark Earth at the Almeida. Two yet to open:- Old Money at Hampstead and Sauce for the Goose at the Orange Tree.
Counteracting that is the endless debate of pre-judging stuff that you have not seen. I saw this week Beautiful Burnout (National Theatre of Scotland / Frantic Assembly). On paper something I would avoid, but both companies have proved their individual and joint worth in the past (Hymns / Black watch / Stockholm) whilst also throwing in an occasional blooper (Rabbit). BB was sensational. I hate boxing, but this was 90 minutes of pure theatrical joy. On the other hand folk are getting really excited about Viva Forever. I absolutely LOATHE the music of the Spice Girls and would struggle to find the enthusiasm to turn up at the theatre if I were GIVEN a ticket for the show. Does this make me a bad person?
My glass is empty - could you refill it please ....
And who could see that the road would twist
