I did well in the three tasks. good practice, especially that I'm learning about Shakespeare's life and famous plays through the mock course in FL.

Yes, I do. I don't go often, though.
Well, that's a hard question, I like both. But I like to be involved in the process, to watch the cast as they act, as they pause, to live with them, as it were, because there are those moments of pausing, of waiting what's next, of trying to guess what the actors, or the director, mean and want to achieve, what the author wants to tell... Yeah, that's a hard question, good films do the same, but differently.

I like to watch the recorded theatrical versions. Maybe because of the audience's reaction which they capture. That's not quite the same when I go to see it live. I am more interested in what's going on on the stage then.
