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.
A work of art is an invitation to love.

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 starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

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.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
