SFX has fond memories of The Lord Of The Rings musical, and of course there's Wicked. Does Rocky Horror count as SF theatre? Share your experiences of live SF in the thread below, or on our forum .
On a related note, the West Country's Miracle Theatre Company has been touring a version of Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle which is coming to Bath's Rondo Theatre on 19 March. As SFX is based in Bath, we thought, "Hell, why not pop along?" so we'll have a review here after we've seen it. Also, SFX's Other Dave has a short, five-minute SF play on at the Rondo as part of an evening of one-act plays on 6 and 8 May, if anyone's interested.
