If money is a concern, try the "fantastic plastic" or sometimes called the "nifty fifty". That's the Canon EOS 50mm f/1.8. Great lens. Best optics per dollar, for sure. Only complaint people have had has been about the quality of background blur when shooting wide open. I haven't had an issue personally, it's acceptable for the price. It IS rather ugly compared to the quality of bokeh on the f/1.2L .. But you can buy 15 of the 1.8s for the price of the 1.2, so that's to be expected.

The 1.4 has had some great reviews as well.

Get the biggest (smallest f-stop) lens you can afford. If you get "close to the action" a 50mm ish is adequate. If you shoot from your seat in the middle of the theater, go 85mm ish. In my opinion (worth next to nothing) money on two f1.x fixed lenses is better spent than on an f2.x zoom.
