It's at the Edinburgh Fringe in August, the day we get there is the last day it plays. It's on my 'to-see' list but it's getting a bit long..

I saw the TV film version starring Queer As Folk and Wicked star Randy Harrison. I enjoyed it..

The movie was cool, but the play was in the movie, the rest of the movie had nothing really to do with the play, except relevant events I guess... lol.

I read it in school. Amazing. I saw the TV movie with Randy Harrison, too... it wasn't as good.

Well, it's not a movie version of the play. It's just a movie using the play as a show within a show concept...

I saw the play in at State Festival a few years ago.
Very intense stuff.

I haven't seen the play but I have heard the her song. Does that count?

I starred as "Josh" in one production, was various actors in another production, and co-directed another production.

The movie is more effective than the play, in my opinion. It's a great piece for highschoolers. ANYONE can DO the play, but the challenge of GETTING THE MESSAGE ACROSS is what I look for when I go to see the show.
