This is sort of the "Movie" thread, but for any live performances - theater plays, concerts, stand-up performances...
I tend to travel quite a lot, so I'd enjoy to read opinions on what's out there.
Highly recommended (saw it last Friday):
"Brief Encounter" - theater play on a program of Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis (British actors/directors/production from Kneehigh Theatre). Based on famous British Oscar winning movie by Noel Coward about an affair between a housewife and a doctor. The Guthrie play involves some clever gimmicks such as combining live action with movies, and has some surprisingly good comedic side stories built into the main dramatic story. Minneapolis is the last of three-city (New York, San Francisco) stops, so you can see it only there. It will be on the Guthrie program until the beginning of April (http://www.guthrietheater.org/whats_hap ... _encounter
Would not touch with 11 ft pole:
Joel McHale stand up. Had the bad idea to see it a few months ago (again in Minneapolis). I like the guy on The Soup, but that stand up (including the warm up act: a mildly drunk slightly overweight former child sitcom star - Topenga(?) ) was simply dreadful.
