I was also there on Saturday night and did anyone else notice the bizarre moment after it had finished? All the actors were off the stage, the audience had started to file out and this teenage girl suddenly clambered on to the stage, obviously very determined as it's a fair height, and started running towards the wings where the actors cast had just gone, before an usher from the auditorium and a member of the stage management team from the stage shouted at her and stopped her going any further.
I've never seen anything like it in 30 years. Also, I was there at the first preview on February 16 ... just like Peter Shaffer ... and Daniel Radcliffe's curtain call entrance was made in just the same way, very bashfully and gingerly. Quite endearing. Typically perceptive closing night speech from Richard Griffiths.

I read the play some years ago - and liked it - and read it again before going, but I thought this performance was just really good, nothing fantastic. I was a bit disappointed by Daniel Radcliffe, he had some weak moments(mumbling, a bit of over and under acting somehow O_o that lead to a "out of character" feeling too), and don't ask me why, but even if Richard Griffiths had some amazing moments, sometimes he sounds a bit linear, a bit flat. I guess I will now be killed by the Harry Potter fanbase And maybe because I had seen the Lady From Dubuque the night before, and THAT was amazing acting...
Other than that, the scenography, lighting, props designs, and dancers were amazing, a big thumb up to Will Kemp!!
