    i absolutely LOVE the theatre, and find it rather depressing that most of my friends would rather die than accompany me! However i do see an awful lot of live theatre with my Theatre Studies class (as a main component of the course is live play reviewing...) i would have to say that my favourite musical is Fiddler on the Roof *sob* and modern play would have to be the outstandingly breathtaking "The Argument" as performed by Theatre O

    I live far too far from anywhere to be able to go to the theatre often at all, but I did see Chicago on Broadway, and it was superb...

    Theatre is for posh people! I have seen Phantom of the Opera when I was younger though and really enjoyed it! I got a bit of a dry throat at the end and managed to hold back a tear.

    Very often, in fact I saw Blood Brothers in Manchester on Saturday - it was fantastic. Luckily, all the West End actors had stayed with it. Sometimes they use crappy actors instead up here

    I don't go to the theatre, and i hate musicals. But i often listen to classical music. So i guess i'm not that un-cultured.

    I love the theatre and musicals, but don't get to go that often as we don't live anywhere near London, so can only go to see shows when they come on tour to Birmingham/Wolverhampton, plus they're not exactly cheap! I've seen Cats 3 times, Les Mis, West Side Story and My Fair Lady as professional shows (oooh, and Phantom, on Broadway!), plus my sister's youth theatre company doing Annie Get Your Gun, West Side Story, Barnum and Jesus Christ Superstar (which was amazing )

    I have a friend here who used to be in NYO, and he's lovely. Some of the musicians in my old county youth orchestra were really up themselves though, and it's really funny now I'm here, meeting people who are way better than them and so much less arrogant

    I think that the wretched state of regional theatre has much to do with the problem. Favourite play: The Tempest.

    The majority of the British are of the TV culture if they're anything like me they hated having to study shakespiere at school.

    I enjoy musicals. Haven't seen many plays.

    I grew up listening to the Miss Saigon soundtrack and have always loved it. Went to see it for my birthday when I was 7 or something, it was good but not as good as it had been apparently (my parents and brother had seen it before).

    It's on at Southampton at the moment, I didn't realise it was still there, but I might see if I can get tickets, my friend is quite keen so might go with him.

    i must admit - musicals piss me right off, no depth at all, but saying that they did get me into theatre with the yearly school production - last year this year *sob* but laying fagin in 'Oliver!', so not a bad end!

    i prefer things like View from the Bridge 'n' stuff, things with real ACTING in them, lol
