Ever go to plays or musicals?

We have a TV and Movie forum, but this really didn't fit... so I'll ask here.

Do you go to plays, musicals, ballets, or any other live performances (other than concerts)?

We went to see Hairspray last night at the Fox Theater. It was hilarious! It was set in 1962, and was about a fat girl from Baltimore trying to get on TV ... a dance show similar to American Bandstand. I highly recommend it.

I goto plays on a regular base , since i'm a member of the technical staff at "stichting stadstheater Leeuwarden" (sound engineer).
I love to see how others do their plays and how they handle their technical things like lights and sound, sometimes get a few pointer from a fellow soundman, or exchange usefull hints, soundfiles or trade equipment

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Looking at the program, I see I missed The Little Shop of Horrors - BUMMER! I bet that would have been good on stage.

I go all the time. In fact, I'm seeing phantom of the opera tomorrow.

I saw that in December when I was in London. It really was pretty cool. Definitely worth it. Also saw Queen the musical, which was ok, if you like Queen.

And many years ago, I’ve also seen Cats (didn’t like it, for whatever reason), Joseph and his amazing technicoloured whatever (Really liked that, but I was like 12), The phantom of the Opera, Chicago, fiddler on the roof, West Side Story, HMS Pinafore, Madam Butterfly, lots of Shakespeare … lots of ballet and Opera too, though that’s mostly gone straight over my head.
I mostly remember the big musicals.

Yeah, my parents tried their best to instill some appreciation of the arts on me.

Little Shop of Horrors holds a special place in my heart as the first show I ever worked on. Over 50 shows later, and I still wonder why I do it...

I went to see 'We will rock you' in London last year and Neil from the Young Ones played the hippy role in it And i saw Aida also in New York and one of the girls from Destiny's Child was the main actress

We will rock you is a must go see, it's so amazingly performed.

The odd musical is fun too.

I saw a play to "Big" back in 4th grade...

They cussed so much...For being such a little kid back then, that ruled...

I tend to group in with friends that go to plays so I guess I go to them aswell. Mainly the to places I see plays at would be ACT (American Conservatory Theatre) and Berkeley Rep(atory Theatre).

After a 3 years of seeing plays the only one I've seen ever worth going to was the first one.

Came back from phantom this morning. It was amazing. Although still not as good as Les miserables. Definitely better than lion king or anything else i've seen.

I've seen a couple on trips like Lion King and Phantom and I also see some musicals cause I play in the pit for school. Once Upon a Matress is the one we're doing now and it is funny in some parts.

I've seen Stomp at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island in Las Vegas.

Seen a few local plays at dinner theaters around the US as well. Many small, local shows are really underrated...I've never seen a play or musical performance that I regretted paying to see. Well, except for Mötley Crüe at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2000. I had nausea for about 4 days thereafter.

I heard from my parents that Stomp just ended their latest tour in my hometown of Macon, GA. Next tour they do, I'm making it a point to go see them at the Fox in Atlanta.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.

I saw Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in NY on weds just gone with John Lithgow (sp?) in it. It was an awesome show. I'd go to the theater more often but in York there is nothing and in cardiff I don't think there's much either.

I go to the symphony orchestra every once in a while, does that count?

I've also been to a few broadway shows, Les Mis, Cats, etc..
Into The Woods was quite excellent.
