I can't think of a time when I have done this for a piece of theatre. Movies, yes, but not theatre.

Dorothy

Yeah, I don't think I ever have.

I saw Porgy and Bess and the Washington Opera House because it had been getting great reviews. Although I think it was more of I didn't know that opera was showing until I read the reviews. It being a positive review helped. Same thing with Othello, didn't know it was showing until I read a review.

Yeah, I definately have gone to see shows I had no intention of going to see, otherwise, simply because of a review. And it doesn't even have to be a particularly good review, or even a particularly good reviewer. If they say something that catches my attention, or that sounds interesting to me (especially if they disparage it) I may go see it just to get a taste for myself.

I've actually been mulling this over re: the new production of Sweeney Todd. I may have to go see it simply because no one I've spoken to has had the same reaction to it.
