Interesting - I was really contemplating getting tickets for that. I guess though that I wouldn't have been lucky anyway.
I didn't know Harriet Jones Penelope Wilton was playing Gertrude in that! And Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ophelia! Half the DW gang there. *G*

"And the only blip in Hamlet's death scene was a badly-timed mobile phone ring from somewhere in row E."
--- ooooh, now can it get any more embarrassing than that?

Directed by Kenneth Branagh. :-) And a good cast. I've been wanting to go to the theatre in London now that my student loan's come through, and I'd quite like to see this production, but I think ultimately I'll have to go for Sir Ian and Patrick Stewart, if I can still get tickets.

Waiting for Godot hätten wir auch gerne gesehen, aber das wäre genau am ersten Tag der Dreharbeiten von Hamlet gewesen und wir wussten nicht, ob Patrick dann dabei sein würde und haben uns dann für Oliver entschieden und kein bisschen bereut.

I'd love to see Oliver as well, cos I love Rowan and adore Burn, but I'm sorry, Professor Xavier and Magneto (or should I say Jean-Luc Picard and Gandalf the Gay?) on stage together? The thought alone makes me excited like a little schoolgirl.

Yeah, would have loved to see this as well. You should try to get a ticket asap. It's hard to get one.

If I am not mistaken Rowan will leave Oliver in July and I guess it'll be hard to find a proper substitute, because he was brilliant and man he can really sing. Well, Burn's a great actor, but he definitely has no singing skills *lol*

There's still a few tickets available for July and August, I just need to figure out when I can get away and go to London for a day.

Aw, I guess I'll miss Rowan then. I had no idea he was a good singer though. And Burn, bless him, I don't care if he can sing or not, I'd still like to have seen a Torchwood musical episode.

... I just realised you replied in German earlier and I kept writing in English. Sorry. Got English telly on in the background, can't concentrate on two language at the same time. :-P

Why not try to see a Matinee and an evening performance. It ususally works on a Saturday. I am still not sure when they are going to change the cast in Oliver and who is leaving then.

I had no idea either. Just heard him on the Lion King Soundtrack and it was fun. But he's got a great voice. A Torchwood musical episode would have been great, especially considering the fact that John has such a tremendous voice. I loved to see Burn in the theatre. Never liked him much, but I do now.

*lol*. Didn't realise this either. I am watching the Chart Show on telly at the moment. Somehow it works to switch from German to English today. It doesn't every day *gg*.

Hm, good idea. Unfortunately I work on Saturdays, but it might work out another day, cos I'm sure they do matinees during the week as well, no?

Rowan was in The Lion King? Really? Haha.

I always liked Burn. Owen was probably not the easiest character to like, but Burn is a very good actor. He must be very good on stage.

I'm rubbish at jumping between languages. I can't even translate for my parents when they come over to visit, cos it literally takes me a few minutes to change from one language to the other.

Yeah, they do one matinee during the week as well. So you might be lucky :-). Now I get it how you are going to manage it to come to London for just one day during the week. You're the one living in Cardiff *squee*. I love that city *sighs*. I so want to go back there as soon as possible.

Not the musical - the Disney Film *gg*. Sorry I should have said that.

Can't say why, but I never liked Burn much, but I do now. Bill is such a bad person in Oliver, but he really played it well and convincing. Shame he didn't come to the stage door.

Oh.. don't ask me to translate anything *gg*. Sometimes if I have to write a simple mail to the colleagues in England I don't know how to do that, because you have to find the proper words *gg*. Some days it works better than on others *gg*.

Yepp, I'm in Cardiff. Such a beautiful city. :-)

Oh, the film, I see. I think I've only ever seen the film in German.

Oh, I know. It's especially bad when my parents ask me about uni. Cos there's so many words specific to my studies that I don't even know the German translations of. My mum likes to make fun of me cos of that. lol

I don't mean to sound all stalkery, but I just had a quick look at your profile, and Mark Gatiss! *squee* I adore that man so much! XD

So it might have been in the beginning, because later on they didn't show the songs in a dubbed version anymore.

The specific words can be really tough. I mean I know a lot of daily talk due to using LJ and some board, but even I don't know all the phrases some of the colleagues uses. There sure have been some misunderstandings on both sides before.

You're not stalkery at all - that's what a profile is for. There really is another Mark Gatiss fan on LJ *squees*. Gosh, I know him for ages, ever since I first watched LoG I'm a total fan. Mark was always my favourite and I was so lucky to meet the 3 of them 3 times already. Ich hab sie 2 x in "Art" gesehen und 1 x dann mit der 2. Tour (ganz hinten im Theater, aber ich war da). Ich kann nur sagen, dass Mark echt der netteste VIP ist, den ich bisher getroffen habe. Der ist einfach voll lieb und auch Steve. Reece ist ähäm.. sehr komisch. Wenn du magst, hab noch die erste Story auf der Seite. Leider muss ich die aus Kostengrünen bald schließen, aber noch kannst du es lesen "Art" Story . Bei der Tour sind die den Abend nicht rausgekommen und ich hab irgendwie die an der Stage Door belabert, dass ich das zur Unterschrift gebe und am nächsten Tag abhole. Sie konnte zwar nichts versprechen, aber ich bin dann sogar 2 x noch hin. Dann kam sie mit den Sachen später abends wieder und meinte, ihr könnt da gleich rein (obwohl die Besuch da hatten und auch nicht kommen wollten). Ich glaube ich hatte den Deutschland Bonus *hihi*. Es waren noch ein paar andere da, die dann auch mit rein durften. Hatte mich dann mit Steve unterhalten und Mark guckte schon die ganze Zeit. Hab ihn dann gefragt, ob er mich wiedererkannt hat und er meinte ja.. Nach 3 Jahren (auf den Tage genau *yikes*). Das hat mich voll fasziniert. Leider hab ich kein Foto zusammen mit Mark. Beim ersten Mal war ich ja ganz alleine und bei der Tour ging es da nicht. Aber die Erinnerung ist noch da und eigentlich sind die auch schuld, dass ich zum David Fan mutiert bin. Denn in Blackpool ist ja Steve auch mit dabei und den hab ich nach dem letzten Erlebnis dann rausgeholt, um den endlich zu gucken und dann war's zu spät *lol*. Ich fand es cool, als ich hinterher rausgefunden habe, dass Mark and David auch noch dicke Freunde sind. Passt auch sehr gut - sind beide total lieb.

Ich hab ein paar Kritiken gelesen und eigentlich war nur eine positiv bei dieser Produktion. Ich will auf jeden Fall nochmal Hamlet sehen, um mal vergleichen zu können, aber noch nicht zu diesem Zeitpunkt. Ich hatte aber keine Ahnung, dass Harriet Jones dabei ist *gg*. Ganz schlecht hat wohl "Polonius" abgeschnitten. Ich glaube an Oliver kommt eh nie wieder einer ran.

Oh man, das mit dem Handy wäre mir aber voll peinlich gewesen *lol*. Blöderes Timing gab es wohl nicht mehr *hihi*
