Saw a production of Woody Allen's God: A Play on Saturday night.

I didn't really know what to expect but this play was a gas. It was Woody Allen at his zany, unrestrained best. There were cast members pre-planted in the audience, popping out of their chairs to join the play on stage on cue and guest appearances by Blanche Dubois, Stanley Kowalski and Mr. Allen himself (or a reasonable facsimile thereof). Good fun!
Nothing lately, sadly, but I note that The Woman in Black premieres as a film this weekend. Saw it years ago in London and it over-delivered. Never thought live theatre could give me the heebie-jeebies like that. I've since recommended it to several friends travelling to London and all have enjoyed it. I'll be surprised if the film is half as good, but who knows?
funny, it was a single producer that i had never heard of and didn't write down. it was actually good too! but the pourer kept telling me that it was "high end"...and he told me they only made pinot, nothing else, despite the pamphlet in front of him explaining the winery and all of the different wines they made...i may have that pamphlet somewhere, i'll post when/if i find the name...

and i think they use a different winery every weekend...regardless, the show was awesome and had quite a few different scenarios that weren't in the movie.

wow, what bottle of wine did they have to bribe you with for that?

would have been better off running out the back door and hitting the School II http://www.schoolofthewise.net/school-ii

Amen Corner was ok but the plot was forseeable halfway through the 1st act. I would have liked a little more music in it to keep the entertainment factor up.


God of Carnage was the best of the last season at the Guthrie (before the movie came out). Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was excellent also, though I'm always a sucker for their Tennessee Williams offerings.

I'm looking forward to their World Premieres of Nice Fish and The Primrose Path next season. They've done well over the past few years getting some World Permieres or 2nd Openings for some great shows.
Went to the Book of Mormon this past weekend in LA. Really enjoyed the show and laughed pretty much throughout the play. I have some Mormon friends which made it even funnier. Casting was really well done. Highly recommend this, but there is some pretty foal language so if that is hard for you to handle than this show is not for you. There was an older couple next to us that left 30 mins in that I assume didn’t do their homework to know what the play was like.

Glenn- A co-worker informed me this morning that he and several friends flew to L.A. over the weekend to see the show. Suffice to say that they laughed hysterically throughout.
