In what is beginning to look like a trend, more robot actors take to the stage:

The Swiss Barnabe Theater follows in the footsteps of Japan's first robot-human theatre production a performance of the "The Phantom of the Opera" in Taiwan last year. Its play revolves around a lonely man, living in isolation with his three robots.

The autonomous acting robots were developed by Swiss service robotics specialist Bluebotics.
