Pretty sure I was out of there about 22:15 last Friday but that was a 19:30 start. I read that it starts half an hour earlier on Mon/Tues!

I saw this Thu and it finished at 2215hrs.  It was amazing; I was in Stalls C and got wet but we were expecting it.  Adam really doesnt hold back with his 'hoofing' the water at least it was warm despite the chlorine smell lol.  I'm going again next month

Just for future reference, it finished at 21:45 or there abouts last night (And I got my train fine!). The show was lovely by the way. The performances, costumes, set etc were great; I just feel the story is lacking somewhat, but of course that can't be helped and I felt the same way about the film!

Another thing - I was sat at the front of the Upper Circle and towards the end of Act One a woman fell down the stairs of the centre aisle and nearly went over the railing - someone caught her leg just in time! I did hear someone saying during the interval that she was okay!

It must have been so nice to sit in Row C Stalls. I sat in rear Balcony Row M (higher up than Upper Circle = 4th level), and it was so very very far and steep. I paid £15  through getintolondontheatre discount, but still felt like a rip-off with that kind of view.


Having said that, the show was so good that in the end I half-forgot about the view (but only half).  As a fan of the original film, I didn't expect the stage version to be as good as the film, but it was! It surpassed all my expectations. The cast was genuinely great. The water-splashing was generous. I was weeping with joy at Moses Supposes, Goo'Morning, the title song and the curtain-call finale.  Real gold is this show.



The only worry is that there doesn't seem to be many tickets left for tuture performances. But I'm determined to see it again, somehow, and in a better seat!

So pleased it's had the same critical response in the West End, can't wait to see it now!

I love the film but have always been put off seeing a show version as I reckoned they'd be tacky and cheap versions. This, however, sounds pretty good so I might give it a go!

Went to this yesterday matinee! LOVED it. Was so much fun, we day queed and got there about 9? and there was about 8 people in front, by 10 the queue was at the end of the buidling.
Front row the lower numbers looks like you get more wet than the higher numbers (due to the cast members kicking left) If you go prepared and have a coach you can lift up you'll be fine - personally loved it and would recommend front row every time!
Brilliant cast and as much as I loved the cast can't wait to see some understudies!

I day seated last Saturday as a last minute thing....  Got there about 11am

Didn't get front row but got side slips in row D for the matinee....  The view was fine just a very small part of the stage you couldn't see....  Although I wasn't in the seat right on the end, that may have given a bit of a dodgy view as there is a pillar!....  I even I got a little bit wet!....

They definitely do not hold back with the water kicking!....  ;o)
