Michael himself had been doing a lot of verbatim theatre at Stratford and had even invited the public to decide the Theatre Royal’s programme under his Open Stage initiative. The performers are not bog-standard actors but people able to improvise script, props, design, lighting and (when necessary) audience participation at speed.You Tube videos of the 2013 Home Theatre shows feature rappers, piano players and one performance in Italian.Marcus Ellard, who helped Richard Sumitro develop “my” show, and attended the performance at my house, adds: “No two hosts are the same, no two homes are the same.” Children interrupt, doorbells ring, one 2013 performance took place on a packed, rocking houseboat.The idea of a post-show meal, however rudimentary, was added after the format was tried out in Brazil and the townships of South Africa.Being able to chat on your mobile phone, desktop and connecting with our unique social platform makes well ahead of the competition.The reason we are still going strong after more than 10 years is that our users love what we do and we love our users for sticking with us.Video chat from has been around for a long time, since 2005 in fact.That's why we have developed a number of advanced video chat technologies that our competition have tried to copy but couldn't match.

This was more embarrassing than Richard’s grasp of my puerile James Bond fantasies.
Or his idea — incorrect, honest — that I psych myself up for work by talking to my reflection in the mirror like Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver.
About my parentage and heritage (we’re not Jewish, though we look it) and his (Anglo-Indian, brought up in Bangladesh, born and educated in the UK). About theatre: I am a former critic, he was in a play I saw at the Almeida.
Indeed, he included one of his lines from it — “if she cries, I’m gonna crack one off” — in the monologue, and I was mortified that Ellard or my friend Paul might think it was something I had said.
But then, as Richard said, the show is an impressionistic take on a personality, not a biography.
