I just don't get it. Was it the lack of closeups? I just felt like I was watching scenes, one after another, and none of the actors made me care about the story. So while it wasn't the worst thing I've seen on stage, well, my time is precious and so should yours be, and thus I must once again pimp Venus as a Boy as THAT old, mangy man had me eating out of his hand, utterly convinced that he WAS a 22 year old male prostitute in Soho in the early 90s. The blond tranny prostitute around whom Manuela's search rotated? I could not believe so many people ruining their lives for him no matter how much I stretched my imagination. (Mark Gattis was good, but he wasn't supposed to be the most fun element of the show, I think.)
Anyway. Good company tonight and I'm glad we got to see it, but I am looking forward to seeing Mark Wheeldon tomorrow at Sadler's Wells. As usual, there are discounted tickets available at the TKTS booth and we would be happy to see you there.
