I wish I could come! :(

Wishing you the very best of luck and metaphorical broken legs (I trust you have an Igor as part of the cast? :wink: )

Is anyone videotaping the performance? If so, I'd love to see it :D

Videotaping a performance is a breach of copyright. You wouldn't want Terry's men-with-thin-watches coming to have a 'talk' with you, would you?

On the other side of the world, we're currently in the middle of our season of "The Truth" in Adelaide: http://unseen.com.au/shows/the-truth-2/

Some great reviews coming in!

Sadly Alan, you missed the space between the "pre-" and the "dinner"
Thus "pre-" is the adjective applicable to the dinner, rather than a constituent part of the noun, as would have been the case had I written "pre-dinner"
:P
