    Theatre is amazing! I could quite happily spend weeks on end watching the same thing, or watching different things every night :love:
    I've seen so many things, everything from tonnes in the West End to small things with a cast of less than 10, so I'm not sure I could choose a favourite... Wicked would definitely be up there, as would Les Miserables, Billy Elliot is my current obsession Haven't really seen much that isn't a musical, but war horse was good

    So, let's share...what's your favourite thing you've seen in the theatre?

    Have only ever been twice (but would love to go again and have never been to a London theatre, which I would definitely love to do!), but I loved To Kill a Mockingbird. It was really well done, and the actors, especially the kids, were really talented and really brought the book to life

    Advantages at being close to London I've never fully read to kill a mockingbird :hide: Think my dad gave it to me too young so I didn't get it, found it boring and so didn't finish it.
    Sounds really great though!

    I did it for my National 5 English, so had to read it, and seeing it was really helpful for that
    I think it was a good book, but I'd have much rather read it on my own terms

    We saw several of our GCSE books as well :five: Blood Brothers tour was surprisingly disappointing (although maybe I hyped myself up too much) A Christmas Carol was great until chapter 5 where it went completely off piste and was very weird indeed!
    Fair enough :yep:

    I saw Pete Postlethwaite in King Lear a few years ago, not too long before he died.

    I saw Matthew Kelly in Of Mice and Men not long after he was cleared of the paedo stuff, that was good.

    Also saw Fame on the West End, which was probably the second best thing.

    Difficult to choose. Probably Hamlet with David Tenant and Patrick Steward or The Lion in Winter with Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley.

    Yeah my dad in particular likes to take me to all sorts! That's how I've seen so much
    Wow that's a great list! Haven't seen anything like all of them but I love cats! Same theatre as War Horse in the west end as well (although obviously not at the same time )
