I saw it on Friday with a friend and we both loved it. It is a complex play, that's for sure, and sometimes is not easy viewing. We discussed the themes raised in the play for hours afterwards, it was that good.
We felt all of the performances were excellent and did not notice any "fluffed" lines from any cast members. Orlando Bloom delivered a very strong performance and I have to take my hat off to him as clearly he is under the most pressure and clearly under the spotlight. The other actors were also very strong, especially Tim Healy as Mr Shaw and Paul Hilton as Andrew.
Overall I enjoyed the play very much and felt it was put together in a very professional manner with very strong performances. I would recommend it to anyone.
I would also suggest that anybody who left the theatre during the performance was probably heading for the stage door to wait for Mr Bloom. The fangirls really are waiting there daily and they know they should get there early and not wait for the play to end..... seriously. That said nobody left while I was there and everybody seemed to enjoy it. We chatted to a number of people around us in the interval and they were all very much enjoying the play.
Mr Bloom is also excellent in the second half, having to cry convincingly for quite a while. We both agreed he proved himself as more than a teen idol. I've actually always thought he is a good actor but it seems to have become fashionable to knock him recently.

i'd be interested to hear - I've not seen anything about it in the reviews - if anyone thought the accents were all over the country!? We flew between Durham (I think the father was recycling his billy elliot), Yorkshire and were in Ireland for long spells with the mother!
