Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat
Jesus Christ Superstar
Phantom of the Opera
'Love Never Dies'
greatest hits concert
Anthony and Cleopatra
A Man with Two Governors
Some of these were amazingly good (Jane Eyre, The Tempest), others bad (Love Never Dies,* Twelfth Night,** Anthony and Cleopatra,*** Treasure Island), and most interesting in some way. I'm happy to have finally gotten to see a staging of MacBeth that includes Banquo's ghost: as I hoped, it was creepy as all get out. And even though their MacBeth was twichy their Banquo, MacDuff, and (pregnant) Lady MacBeth were all v. good.
The only one I've skipped so far is A Streetcar Named Desire (Janice watched it, I took a pass).
Up next: Coriolanus, which I disliked when I read it back in grad student days; I'm hopeful it might have virtues when performed not apparent on the page.
