  1. Sorry. Won’t take it after all. I misread your post.
  2. Actually IMHO, the harlots are an integral part of the earthy humour inherent in the street tableaux, with support from the 'lads' (Romeo, Mercutio & Benvolio) & the townsfolk, angry or otherwise. It’s not supposed to be subtle.
  3. I’ve seen Thomas Mock twice as Paris. One of the things I liked about his performances was that he seemed warmer and kinder towards Juliet at their initial meeting. This differed from many other performances of Paris, where the dancing of the role can suggest an arranged marriage, with little affection for Juliet on the part of the groom to be. Mock's warmth at that initial stage made his subsequent presence in the crypt more understandable to me. It suggested that he genuinely cared about Juliet and was properly distraught about her death.
  4. I already have a ticket but it’s nice of you to give them away
  5. I have no informed knowledge, but my understanding is that all the dancers have a pretty free choice as to which class they attend
  6. Well, it’s just that she wears the same costume before and when Victor's mother dies, when he goes to Med School, when he comes home and is nursed, when his brother is being tutored and has an (eighth ? birthday) when she’s arrested and when she’s hanged. And the maids wear black with white aprons, so she’s probably not a maid, more a nurserymaid although not before William is born; anyway I'm puzzled that her costume doesn’t change from Act 1 to Act 2.
  7. Since we’re talking about Justine, I’ve always been puzzled by the fact that she doesn’t have a costume change?
  8. Given that a computer plug in dvd drive costs less than £20, this may not be a big problem if your pc/laptop doesn’t have an integral drive.
