Lynette, did you remove it?

Old Vic New Season

07 February 2014 - 05:05 PM

The Old Vic is holding a fundraiser, and one of the prizes is a portrait of Kevin Spacey painted "in his final theatrical role after a decade as Artistic Director".  Also it looks as if it will be in the round, since another prize is dinner on the Old Vic stage during the "In the Round" season (spring 2014 to summer 2015).

Which role, I wonder?

The Drowned Man - Spoiler Thread

24 June 2013 - 09:36 AM

As Cardinal pointed out on the other thread, there are two Woyzecks, but I really only saw one; Cardinal suggested the other was female and so it appeared from the finale, but then who was the dark skinned, dark haired man in the other story that seemed to be called Frankie (Franz Woyzeck, no?) Or perhaps he was calling to Frankie, I can't remember - I  only happened across fragments of that story. For the one I was following, I identified the main characters I think (very beautiful Anders - looked just like a young Jean-Louis Barrault  - and a Woyzeck with rather too noble a profile to believe fully in his subjugation, but I digress), and think I saw most of the main scenes for that story - loved Mary also. But then who was the man (who wasn't Woyzeck) who was plunged backwards naked into a bath of water in a small room - was that another victim of the doctors? And what happened in the finale, which I mostly missed until I climbed a lighting rig to be able to see?

National Theatre Box Office

30 May 2013 - 11:40 AM

Can I just say how brilliant this box office is. I managed to screw up two bookings in a spectacular fashion, and then arrive late for a third (Strange Interlude - started at 6.30pm - who knew? well, I did, at one time) and they sorted everything out for me with a minimum of fuss. Thank you, box office people.

To Kill A Mocking Bird

If anyone here sees this it would be good to get some views early on, as I imagine tickets may sell out quickly.
