    I was pretty much in the same boat, I only saw what I was forced to at school and such.

    Then I started working in the west end of london and I got dragged to see various productions and have never seen a boring one yet, although I have avoided some that looked boring. I've seen Plays, Musicals and Comedy skits and most were golden.

    I heartily recommend:

    Spamalot -musical
    We Will Rock You- musical
    Avenue Q - musical
    Henry VII - RSC production
    Macbeth - RSC production
    Lord of the Rings - musical
    Of Mice and Men - Play
    Guards, Guards! - Play (based on discworld)
    Les Erands - Not enitrely sure, but there where naked ladies so i guess it was ok

    The Crucible, by Arthur Miller;it's all about the Salem witch trials. Very powerful, and somewhat chilling watching the innocent people getting caught up in everythng that happened.

    Favourite one I was in was Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas now I come to think of it. Being Welsh it has a very special place in my heart.

    Good call; I saw the original B&W movie of The Picture Of Dorian Gray a few weeks ago. Remarkably scary it is too. I have the complete works of Oscar Wilde in hardback; look out for "Lord Arthur Saville's Crime", it's hilarious.

    Little Shop of Horrors was a lot of fun to make, and its enjoyable to watch.

    Shear Madness is another favorite.

    I was in a high school production of Annie... I played the bum Ira.... yeah, nothing like the women telling you "oh, you have such great eye lashes! and great lips!" to REALLY creep you out...

    and then I was dragged to see Cats... nuff said.

    between those two things, I don't want to ever have anything to do with a play for the rest of my life.
