This play sounds really good.

Do you go see live performances? What's the best/worst one you've seen in a while?

Lots and lots of theatre. If you like the live arts Nova Scotia's an awfully good place to be (so is Toronto of course). Recently saw --
Good stuff:
The Drawer Boy (Eastern Front)- great mainstream theatre
Richard II (Exodus)- one of my favourite Willie S. plays done wonderfully (and really stripped down) by my friends at Exodus Theatre in Halifax
Vagina Monologues (benefit) - Great script, OK production
Lots of neat stuff at the "On the Waterfront Festival"

Bad stuff:
Jesus Christ Superstar (Neptune Theatre)- Awful. Cough cough. Andrew Lloyd Webber, ugh, aaaah! Cheesy crap.

The last play I saw was Clout, starring RH Thomson and Eric Peterson. I really liked it, even though one of the actors had to yell out "Line!" once.

I really liked how it tried not to be "left" or "right", but criticized both sides. It didn't quite manage to pull that part off (it did tend to lean one way more than the other), but at least it tried.
