Isn't this forum supposed to be protected against malicious posts? It's disgusting that people can write such vindictive rubbish and usually at the weekends when the board is obviously not monitered!

The board is monitored seven days a week. Apparently your complaint about the post was lost somewhere along the way. Possibly before it was sent.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.

I went to see it today. I was amazed, its utterly brilliant! The cast are all amazing, especially Kerry Ingham, and the staging made me sit there smiling. Utterly delightful. Only a few things to nitpick over - the Acrobat and the Escapologist part starts off well but then gets utterly confusing, Trunchbull was nasty not a loony in the book, why change her for the musical, and the ending is just bizarre with voiceovers and Russians. Was there a particular reason Act 2 had to abandon the source text? Other than that, its utterly brilliant and one of the best things I have seen in a theatre. A*

5* from Telegraph ("best British musical since Billy Elliot" "I predict this show will be unstoppable" "a smash hit that will surely be the toast of the West End")
5 * from Times
4* from Guardian

VERY positive review on Front Row.

Can't wait to see it- but I've got to wait until the end of Jan :(

I've heard that they'll either extend the run at the Courtyard (nothing's planned to follow it in there), or move it into town. The only probelm is there  many theatres free, and also the production team willl be very busy with working on Ghost.
