Neither were "professional" productions, but I saw Millie and Little Shop this summer.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I? I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

It'd be interesting to know how much you spent on shows in 2008.

I spent $519.50 on a total of 20 shows (mostly using student rush)

I'm from Toronto, Canada, and you know something? I would not want to have missed ANY of these shows. There were/are lots of good things in all of them. My advice - Forget the critics and the reviews. Go see what appeals to you, what you are most interested in. You will probably not be disappointed. Of course I saw many other shows up here in Toronto, at the Stratford & Shaw Festivals nearby. I guess I'm a theater junkie, and proud of it.

To be or not to be

I once heard someone describe her (Ruthie Henshall) singing as sounding as though she's trying to swallow a whole meatball slightly larger than her windpipe. (The same person compared Michael Ball's singing to sounding as though he's sitting on a washing machine on spin cycle and Colm Wilkinson's to a man with a paralyzed lip trying to eat cottage cheese.) --- Schmerg_The_Impaler
