National Theatre
[Screen grab of the National Theatre tweet linked above. Text: Philip Quast joins Imelda Staunton
and Janie Dee in Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman's Follies. #NT2017. Image: collage
of images of the three stars in various plays (presumably. I am not familiar enough with the career
of any of the three to identify the roles).

Скриншот твита National Theatre на который ссылка выше. Текст: Филип Кост присоединится
к Имельде Стонтон и Джейни Ди в постановке спектакля Follies Стивена Сондхайма
и Джеймса Голдмана. #NT2017. Изображение: коллаж фотографий этих трёх актёров
в различных пьесах (как мне кажется. Не знаю карьеру ни одного из них настолько хорошо,
чтобы понять, что это за роли).

У меня внезапно появились планы на следующую осень: Англия и пьеса мюзикл?, о которой я не знаю ничего, и ничего не собираюсь узнавать.

Конечно, по дороге много всяких неприятных мелочей: деньги, виза, логистика (поездку придётся строить вокруг и около преподавательской деятельности, которой мне угрожают уже полгода). Но это всё именно мелочи. Неприятные, нудные, трудоёмкие, и в конечном счёте несущественные.

Пока же привет, потолок. Ещё увидимся, логическое мышление.


I suddenly have plans for next fall. London and a play a musical? I know nothing about, and am not going to learn anything about until then.

There are many unpleasant stumbles on the way: money, visa, logistics, having to find time around, and possibly over the teaching stunt I'm constantly threatened with for the last half a year. All these though are but inconsequential, annoying, unpleasant and necessary parts of the road.

Hello, ceiling. See you, rational thought.

i find it's best to go into anything entertainment related blindly, that way you don't have any intentions or you are bias via outside information.

the movie wall-e to me is very special. i didn't read any reviews, nor did i watch any previews. it was just a movie my bf and i said "oh, that's in the movies this week. we should try and see that!" it was a wonderful experience. i hope yours is just as good ;)

I completely agree, and also avoid as much buzz as possible. Seeing as I always see a show at least thrice, even if the first time is confusing, the following ones only get better and better, and it is like seeing it again anew (sitting centre, left and right of the orchestra also helps with this).

There is little comparison between live theatre and movies though :p. Even if it is a night when it does not work out too well.

А почему ты решила ехать на эту пьесу? Из-за актёров? Раз ты ничего другого о ней не знаешь.

Да — потому что в ней играет Филип Кост. Он мне очень нравится.

Чаще всего я хожу в театр ради актёров (очень редко — постановщиков). Какая пьеса не так уж важно.

Man I want to go to England so bad. I'm not sure if I can afford it. My partner has no desire to go >_>. Someday!! I especially want to hit up Scotland and Ireland.

Just save and go alone then. Find some event you absolutely HAVE to be there for, like, I don't know, one of the festivals (Glastonbury comes to mind), or a concert, or a play.

Or tempt your parents to go and tag along. That could be more cost-effective, especially if you get a common room in hotels :).

For me, as long as I don't HAVE to spend money on something else, I will go to all plays like this, and consider each my last chance. Could very well be. Was in the case of Alan Rickman's Seminar :'(.
