I wish that this sympathetically written and beautifully acted play had a better venue which it so richly deserves.

I had no preconceptions about it at all, never even saw the film but I sat there literally with a smile on my space the whole night. And guess who the stand out performance was.... Rufus Hound and that was the last thing I was expecting. He's so energetic, very cute, the acting is great and the singing great too. He certainly shows up Robert Lindsay in that department.
All the cast were excellent. No weak links, loved Samantha Bond and the guy who plays the French guy. The costumes and design were gorgeous, it looks very very classy.
Got invited to a focus group afterwards and the feedback was pretty much 100% positive. Some sound issues bring the only real complaint (orchestra too loud on some songs, drowning the vocal).
I really wasn't in the mood for going tonight but so glad I did. Loved it.

The lady sits down next to her friend. Two minutes later she comes back to me and says: "You look tall". I just looked at her. She then says "I want my seat back, the guy in front of your seat is really tall". I could hardly believe it! I just took my stuff and moved back to my seat, next to her friend (again).
Her friend then starts chatting away to me like nothing has happened! The guy on her other side had witnessed it all and had a good laugh. To make things better, the man who eventually sat down in front of swap-lady was even taller than the one in front of me. Theatre-kharma at its best!

Or, you know, regular theatregoers who are not so well off, and would rather buy lots of cheaper tickets than just a few expensive ones.
