Wonder if there's ever been a radical production of the plays just billed as HIV parts 1 and 2

Perhaps they'd booked thinking it was a concert by the disco act who had a hit in the 70s with "Boogie Oogie Oogie".

BEIJING (AFP) - Couples looking to enjoy a romantic Valentine's Day at one Chinese cinema will be out of luck this Friday, thwarted by singles who bought up all the odd-numbered seats.
According to the Shanghai Morning Post, a group of Internet users reserved every other seat at a Valentine's night showing of "Beijing Love Story" at a movie theatre in the city's Xintiandi shopping complex.

I had some very loud 'booing' at the WNO's 'Manon' at the weekend, interestingly he applauded the performers and conductor and just booed the director/designer when they came out (it was opening night)

Could have been worse ...

Given average life expectancy when Lear was written was about 40, presumably a "very old" man would be a lot younger than today. So SRB is probably too young.

From Rupert Goold in the Guardian this morning ...



American Psycho will likely make it three in a row this autumn. Though the transfer has not yet been not confirmed, Goold told the Guardian: "We are very likely to give it a future life." He expected a West End transfer around "the end of the year," with a stint in America likely to follow.

Last season was a similar shot of Antony Sher so I assume they now have then up either side of their mantelpiece

I find the front rows at the Olivier a bit cramped so if one of those is on the aisle I'd keep that one.

My top tip would be one of the Premier Inns which can be dirt cheap if you book early enough. There's one very close to the theatre, the other one (Waterside) is further away but better for parking.
