Stage production or book first?

Sophie Just wondered what people's thoughts are on reading the script before seeing the production on stage. Which did you do first, are planning to do one before you decide on reading/seeing the other, are you concerned about disappointments or spoilers, etc.?
I purchased a copy of the book today but do not have tickets to see the stage production until March. In the dilemma of saving the script until after watching it on sage or reading it before.

Felicia I read the script, because I have no chance of seeing the production. As a dramaturg, in theatre, I always recommend watching the play rather than reading the script, because that's the whole point of it. If I had the chance of seeing the production, I would probably not bother to read the script. It's not like books and movies; it's the actual script for the play.
