UB Dublin Theatre Festival 2008

Just a quick heads-up for any theatre lover out there. The Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival is back, and will be running from 25 September to 12 October this year.

There are several performances that caught my attention, including Mozart’s The Magic Flute but in South African way, Barabbas’ Circus (this reminds me of The 7 Fingers’ Traces from last year, but more colourful and I suspect equally entertaining), and Kafka’s Metamorphosis which looks to be spectacular as the show collaborates with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.

I understood from a couple of friends that the booking system went a bit crazy last week shortly after the online booking opened. A trip to the box office to clarify things up (i.e. to check if booking actually went through or not etc) ended up taking over an hour as there was quite a large number of people who were there after encountering the same issues with online booking, on top of normal theatre goers who were trying to purchase tickets directly.

It was frustrating and therefore I had opted to steer clear for a few days before making my move. Let’s hope all these are now sorted. At the very least, by the time I try to get my tickets. ;-)
