If you get the chance go and see Shunt Money. It's running until October. Simon Kane writes and stars in it. I went to see this last night with Chezza. It was like nothing i have ever seen before. I really loved it. The play takes place inside a machine built in the centre of an empty warehouse in Bermondsey Street.

I like Shunt. I hadn't realised it was still on until I saw someone post something on a blog today! I wonder if I can find the time to go...

The posters for John Simm's Hamlet are up in Sheff. Distracts me as I'm driving!

I saw those the other weekend! Are you planning on going, Beast? Katie and I were pondering coming up to Sheffield (if she can make it through another 3 hours of Hamlet...)!

Will liaise with Katie, and let you know if we do decide to... :)

When you phone they don't answer anyway. I still haven't heard anything back - imagine you haven't either? :(

I'm seeing The Book of Morman next week as a birthday gift by some friends. Anyone here seen it and if they have what did they think?

Ooh, would be interested to hear about it! I haven't seen it, but have been meaning to get around to it for ages. It was so booked out when it first came on that I kind of forgot...

Oh Sarah, it was fantastic (better as it was a birthday gift). I nearly laughed myself to death! It's so outrageous! You'll never look at a frog again the same! Really great songs, fantastic cast and actually really feel good. I'm going to buy the soundtrack asap and would seriously go again.

The night before we went to see The 39 steps and that was excellent too. You can see why it's been showered with awards.


I'd urge you all to see both if possible. I've decided I just don't see enough theatre..

I've hardly been to any theatre for ages! I guess we went through a phase of going to things and I haven't been to much since. Will make an effort for Mormon, though. Maybe my next birthday... ;)

I've never been quite sure about the 39 Steps, as I love the book and the Hitchcock film (both very different, of course).

I've been to see a few great plays this year. Daniel kitson and Tim Key in Tree was very good at the old vic. Also saw John Hannah in the titanic orchestra and Jeffrey Holland in and this is my friend Laurel. Also, finally got around to seeing Jersey Boys and Rocky Horror.
