I’m glad people are posting so much about this new Romeo and Juliet stage production. It shows that Cinemaphile is now taking an interest in theater. What are some of your favorite stage productions? What are some performances you’ll never forget? Who are some of your favorite theater actors?

      Theatre is unironically better than film.
      When I say theatre I mean true theatre; not

      I'm German so most """high art""" theatre here is naked people screaming random shit while bodypainting each other.

    Is this a good production of Titus Andronicus?

      Yeah it's great. The guy playing Titus gives off a sort of unhinged Oliver Reed vibe. The only thing that's a bit overrated is the gore - people went on about how extreme it was at the time but it's not that bad.

      The young vic down the road is great. Cheap tickets and a cool atmosphere. Smaller productions so the quality can be hit or miss but for the price it's normally a good night out

    I'll never forget Fireside's Music Man production. Best Harold HIll I've ever seen. He was older, charming, but devious. Every scene was perfectly balanced between being genuine and being manipulative. The guy in the movie is just too nice.

      To add to that, the greatest production I ever saw was a near seven hour adaption of Faust.

      Nah, I think part of the reason they keep posting about this one is because if they post a pic and make a thread without elaborating, they can pretend it's gonna be a movie.

          I forget it's even a board. I still think a /the/ board would give it a run though. Weeb autists can do origami from home, how many Cinemaphileners are regularly getting out to the theatre and dying to discuss the latest play they saw? Those that are will just make a slightly off-topic thread on an active board and would get more discussion in a night than they would in a month on a theatre board.

    West Side Story (1961) is the best musical I've ever seen, I saw a stripped-down version of "Into The Woods" that was decent, Roman Polanski's MacBeth is a genuine masterpiece despite him being a piece of shit.
    I watched "Slings and Arrows" a few months ago on AMC+ and it was really good and had a lot of early-mid 2000s nostalgia. Really great show about the theater and why people do it.

    My favorite film of all time is Waiting for Godot (2001)

    ?si=AKW2rpQdRPJNjkTL
    , an adaption of the play by the same name. Faust (1994)

    ?si=dWqy9vicGEUhQp1u
    , is a rougher adaption of the play Faust which I am also fond of. To be frank, I only consume modern media through reviews. I haven't really watched anything modern in probably over a decade. I hear the Waiting for Godot play with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen was also quite good, but it seems to have gone with a more jovial tone I would not prefer.

        To roughly quote the author of the book, 'The only thing certain about this story is that it involves a boot'. Now in this interpretation, I personally believe it's rather clear why they wouldn't. I sincerely recommend you watch the film, but if you can't bring yourself to watch it entirely then here's

        the ending seven minutes. Your interpretation will be more interesting than my explanation.
