You are feisty this morning!

Which pills did you take to make you so unpleasantly snarky, O habitual condemner of unpleasant snarkiness, you disgustingly obtuse paragon of hypocrisy?

What is an inexpensive hotel? There has to be one!

Frank Rich's original review --

There was also a good -- and lengthy -- discussion about the show here, the second act in particular.

I think the company is called Victoria Opera, and they are doing a production in May next year.

It will serve After Eight right if this thread turns into a love fest for international productions of this Pulitzer-prize winning drama.

My dear Pal Joey,

I'm surprised at you.

What else could it be?

But at least now we won't have to plough through a thread list in which every other thread is on the subject.

I just saw chicago Shakespeare Theatre's "Sunday" and it was very good. Carmen Cusak was a weak Dot but her Marie was fantastic. Jason Daniely was a B+ George.

Thread jack:

While I love, love, love SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE, something about the origination of this thread brings to mind another one of my favorite works of art, A DELICATE BALANCE, and one of the best exchanges in all of Albee's canon: ( Think Elaine Stritch reading Claire for the proper delight )

Agnes: Claire, why don't you take a vacation?

Claire: Agnes, why don't you die?

I suddenly have the urge to re-watch A Delicate Balance (prob my fave Albee).

I'm also intrigued by the kindness of A8 using the British spelling for plow in an international thread. Kudos!

Why yes. Next Spring Theatre du Chatelet in Paris is presenting it.
I can scan and send you the program when I return, if you wish, After Eight.

Mmmmmmm, yes, but it's directed by a British director (Heaven forfend!) so PJ and A8 may be in agreement on this one.

And Act I is going to be in French.

Or is it Act II?

I don't know. Facts never interest me. What matters is the Field of Stones Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I'm drinking.

Well, After Eight. I'm so glad you asked. Thank you for your topic.

A well known performing arts college called NIDA (graduates: Cate Blanchett, Mel Gibson, Baz Luhmann, Phillip Quast, Hugo Weaving et al.) are performing SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE next week. I've never seen the show live before, so I am ridiculously excited.

The tagline is pretty funny/strange:

Art and obsession.
Love and commitment.

Because the brief sentences make it sound quite tense.

What are your thoughts about this production After Eight? Will you be making a trip to see it?

Scripps is a fun drunk. It's Act I that will be in French.

"What are your thoughts about this production After Eight? Will you be making a trip to see it?"

Would that I could, but, alas, I can't. Of course, I'm heartbroken, but you will tell us your thoughts on it, though, won't you? After all, that's what this thread was created for.

Oh, I don't mind when pompous-and-pretentious British directors (are there any other kind?) direct American musicals...just so long as the actors perform it in a foreign language.

People you are being PUNKED! After Eight has posted in another thread his thoughts on this show writing "My loss was the time I spent watching this pretentious bore."

I have long suspected that After Eight is deliberately posting negative comments on shows for which others express enthusiasm.

This thread is just his latest attempt to garner attention.

FrontRow your post is appreciated, but I'm pretty sure every single one of us who posted in here was aware with that and just, umm "playing along"?

This board needs an Offical After Eight Appreciation Thread.

Philip Quast did one in London he was badly reviewed

Really? That's disappointing. I didn't know Philip Quast even knew After Eight.

I thought the RNT production with Quast was considered quite highly...

some people need to brush on the real knowledge of philip quast. Its appalling you do not know what awards he won and for what.

This Regional production runs for 3 more weeks in Orlando! It's so beautifully done, I highly recommend it. In a smaller intimate theatre, using the cast as the pawns of the painter to move things in and out. Including the set, which begins as all white, and each actor comes in, one by one and removes a panel with each chord in the beginning, to reveal a beautiful hand painted set. So gorgeous. And the top notch quality of the cast, especially Hannah Laird as Dot, is just amazing. Also, the best second act of the show I've ever seen.
