Is there some rule about getting naked for a matinee - like the watershed rule in TV? If so, that's a bit strange!

If that's true then I definately won't be seeing the flesh, because I will be going to a matinee.

I think I'm going to cry... :cry:

I think this was lost in the great fritz thingy of August so as I've had an email reminder from them, I'll post it here:

DON'T LOOK NOW
Based on Don’t Look Now by Daphne du Maurier
Adapted by Nell Leyshon
Conceived and Directed by Lucy Bailey
Lyceum Theatre

22 February – 10 March 2007

Sheffield Theatres’ spectacular 2006-07 season continues in February with an unmissable adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s classic supernatural thriller, DON'T LOOK NOW.

Perhaps best known from the 1973 cult film adaptation starring Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland, Daphne du Maurier’s (Rebecca, The Birds) brilliant short story provides the chilling inspiration for this gripping new production. Join us at Sheffield Theatres and be transported to the eerie, mysterious labyrinth of 1960’s Venice as the Lyceum auditorium is transformed into a strange, unsettling space where the paranormal exists and a mysterious, terrible danger looms…

DON'T LOOK NOW sees husband and wife, John and Laura travel to Venice to escape the pain of their young daughter’s recent death. There, they meet two sisters, one of whom claims to be psychic and has visions of the dead child. Tension mounts as John and Laura, seeking answers, are led through a maze of canals and alleyways towards a terrifying climax.

Sheffield Theatres cements its reputation for unparalleled production values by bringing its own spellbinding ghost story to life. Writer Nell Leyshon (The House in the Trees, BBC Radio 4) and director Lucy Bailey (The Postman Always Rings Twice, Playhouse Theatre) reunite following their acclaimed collaboration Comfort Me With Apples (Hampstead Theatre) to stage this brand new adaptation du Maurier’s unforgettable supernatural tale.

That sounds absolutely incredible!

Why is it only on in Sheffield? I hope it gets a nationwide tour!

Waaaaaaaaaaa! Goddamn it - I'd love to go to this! But it might be tricky in March as I'm so fricking busy.

Just had an idea. We should change the name of this thread to "They can't stop theatre!" Just a thought. :)

:lol: That's a really good idea :)

A load of my friends went into London this afternoon to see Wicked. They're not getting back till 2.30 in the morning though, so they'll be so tired. Apparently it's quite good, I hope they enjoy it.
