I just saw Brazil! Brazil! near Broadway, on 42nd Street (NYC) and it was just enough of a taste of Carnival and Brazil. I must be part Brazilian or something--Maybe I was in another life. Anyway, it was a rousing good time.  :D :D :D :D :D

Last night I watched most of Don Giovanni from the Met, on TV. It made me think it's time to go to the opera again.

Nothing beats a night at the opera. :D



Don't forget the peanuts, KC. ;D

"Nutcracker" at the Malco (now Orpheum) in Memphis Tenn-0-see (think Johnny Cash) round about 1972 ,  give or take, nearing Christmas.  My date, a most lovely sexy and also emotionally intriguing blonde, craved to see it. A live performance which was executed without flaw.

Lovely blonde and I had too many unnecessary obstacles to our relationship for it to take root and bear fruit.

I went to see Macbeth on Feb 18th at the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond. Performed by the RSC. Brilliant.

Might have been 1971 but I think not. Pretty sure it was 72 because I remember about two or three months later deciding to buy a new 73 TransAm after test driving a used 71.

I like to remember 72 and years like that because way back then I was still young and handsome.

Do exotic dancers count? I've seen a lot of those. Not lately though.

Absolutely wonderful surprise waiting for me in London.  :)
My British friend had obtained tickets to the ballet at last moment  "Alice's Adventure in Wonderland" shows at Royal Opera House in Covent Garden which was almost sold out!  What a chance I have!!  O0
I was really excited and enjoyed as a child watching this ballet!!  8)
It was a  fantastic performance, amazing dancing and choreography.  I loved it very much!  :angel:

http://flushingtownhall.org/

Yesterday was a flukey kind of day for me--I was going to be late for everything, and I forgot altogether about the Tap Extravaganza at Flushing Town Hall--FTH-- (Link above). I was hungry and all prepared to eat at Subway, and then go grocery shopping at a supermarket right next to Town Hall. But the woman who was in Subway before me said she was in a hurry to see the show at FTH--I remembered I had a complimentary ticket, but it was already after 8PM and I figured the show had already started. I ate my sandwich leisurely....

I went to FTH just to see upcoming performances when somebody told me the show hadn't begun, so I went--OMG! that was an extraordinary show! I got autographs, and my first one written in Japanese.

Tap dancers are always amazing, whether they are fast or slow, young or old, with or without handicaps....

One of the dancer's style reminded me of Savion Glover, when he was a young dancer--Savion was walking in the street with another tap dancer in Harlem, not too far from Sylvia's (a restaurant). Both of them suddenly started a tap dance routine right in the middle of the street--It was outstanding, just like that show I saw last night.

The youngest person on stage was about 2, and the oldest was nearly 92. They came from around the world, just as the audience did!

FTH puts on some pretty good shows. I wish I could go more often....

LCAT, cool idea for a thread! How is this thread different than the other movie threads that we have here (last movie seen and movies seen this week, movies of 2013, etc)? Is this thread designed for us to talk about plays that we saw rather than movies? The title seems to encompass a lot so I'm not really sure what to focus on. Maybe it would be a good idea to delete comedy and drama, since those could be movie categories and focus just on other types of entertainment?

The last play that I saw (which also was a musical) was "The Lion King" on Broadway. I believe that was in 2005! I don't get out much ;)

If I can answer for LCat ... yes, the idea with this thread is live performances, not movies. It's been around since February 2012, so I think the title is probably OK as is.

AKA, maybe you should get out a little more! Come back to NYC sometime and take in a show. ;)

Woops! I thought this was a new thread for some reason!

Good idea, KC! I was thinking of seeing "Wicked" or even "Jersey Boys (because of the potential Clint connection), but when I checked ticket prices, they were super expensive, and since I don't really like musicals, I thought it probably wouldn't be worth spending so much money on something that I might not even enjoy.

Have you seen "Wicked" KC?

No, I don't care for musicals. Unless Clint makes 'em, of course! ;)

As a hint, next time you're in town, check out same-day availability at the Tkts booth in Times Square. They often have popular shows at 50% off the list price.  :)

I saw Stomp last week and it was a great show. Performers banging away on just about anything. Tin cans, paint cans, garbage bins, rubber tyres, kitchen sinks, broom handles etc. Just brilliant.

5/5.
