Jules! Watching a neat show called Theatre Biz, from Britain!
It's a series... looks like it's from 2004? This episode (I only caught the end) was about the Haymarket theatre and the experience of the producers with "A Woman of No Importance". Did you watch this when it was on in Britain? I can't imagine you not doing so. *G* Why in the world is Gillian Anderson talking in a British accent, though... in her interview?

*L*! This one's "Shakespeare's The Italian Job", where they take the plot of "The Italian Job"... and populate it with characters from Shakespeare. *G* And the stage scenery is... Mini Coopers. It's to start out at the Edinburgh Festival (one of 1500 shows!). And they're trying to use Shakespearean quote, I believe...

Although... I don't know if I can keep watching.... the producer just put up her own money... eek! Don't know if I can take it the suspense.

Sounds like a cool show!

GA was raised in England. Since she's been living over there the last few years, she seems to have reclaimed the accent. :)

Really? I thought that perhaps she was just "keeping in character" to work on the accent! *S* Thanks!

Never seen the program??????? EEEEK!

If you want info on it, google "Trio" (the name of the cable channel) and "Theatre Biz".

Can't remember how it turned out, other than the show got mixed reviews. I do think they took it touring, though - but possibly in Australia.

Saw the one after it, too, which was about 2 students about to graduate from drama school. It covered about a year from when they did their 3 minute acts in front of agents/producers/etc. to now. The one who did stupendously got an agent and everything was going well... and her agent dropped out of the biz, so she had to start over. The other, who had a slow start, ended up doing Lady MacBeth in a touring group.
