Discworld Monthly: News
I attended the 8pm May 30th show of Monstrous Regiment, which was only their third live performance. Characters and scenes were understandably cut (most notably Nuggan and the A-M Watch people) but the main thrust of the story was kept intact, as was the humor. They handled adapting the action scenes to the limitations of the small space and crew very well and not once during the 2.5 hour run (with a brief intermission) did the pace drag. The scenes transitioned very smoothly so that unless you know the story by heart (ahem) you might not miss those trimmed out parts at all. The cast was great, but I must say my favorite was Igorina. All in all I highly recommend seeing it. The Lifeline is a small theater so book in advance in case they sell out (hopefully!). We will definitely be going back to see it again. Lisa Pendragyn
