Now we are ready to start.
I was told that the show was interesting. I hoped that
I would enjoy it as much as my friends had. But unfortunately
I must admit I had almost fallen asleep alter the first
thirty minutes. It was boring, really. I lost 25 pounds
and half of the day, it's incredible!
Generally speaking, the performance was ОК and the scenery
was wonderful. The part of the secretary was played
beautifully but I think the other actors, especially
the men who played the main roles of the policeman and
the criminal, were too dramatic to be realistic. I can't
say that the best actors were acting in the performance.
I don't really like musicals but my elder sister had
got the tickets and I only went along to keep her company.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed the performance greatly. It
was original and bright. There were some lovely songs
and the dancing was very good, too.
It made me feel sad when some members of the audience
got up and left in the middle of the performance. It
seems that some people can't understand what drama is
all about. if they ever go to the theatre, they think
they will have fun. As for me, when I go to the theatre.
I expect more than just a laugh.
I spend a lot of my free time going to the theatre to
see plays, partly because it's my job to go to the theatre.
I work as a radio producer. I also read a lot, I read
an awful lot of books and I'm very fond of poetry. I
play golf when I can but if I have to choose whether
to go to the theatre or do something else, I always
choose the theatre.
