Well this was a crummy dud in my opinion.

To be fair, anyone going to see it for any other reason than going to see the longest running show is going to be in for a disappointment - it may have been new and exciting 60 years ago but it really needs an "An Inspector Calls" update.
Which way did he go McGill?

There is a big difference between cultures about how one behaves when watching performance. What some deem as rude is polite (or at least acceptable) to others. As for English in Beijing, it's true that many do speak English, or at least some have a degree of English. However many of the older generations don't - I've met many Beijingers whose only word of English is 'hello', and one can often tell when they don't speak English, because the youngest (generally) member of the group translates. Often in real-time.

I went to see this in April this year and thought it old fashioned but enjoyable ( a guilty pleasure ? ) and it was nice finally to step inside the St. Martins.
