Very centre was ok for me. The md is not in the way and you may get Beverly interact with you,  as I did with heather
Have had day seats front centre and they were great.  One thing to note is that you do get engulfed and I mean totally engulfed by dry ice :)

So it seems the cast change not only didn't hurt - it might have helped.  In any case, if the show is selling out with its replacement cast it speaks volumes about the show itself.  It's a very solid crowd-pleaser.  Is it still headed for Broadway?

I think its rumoured for Autumn 2014 with Heather Headley reprising the role.

A great cast can't save a bad show, but a bad cast can easily ruin a good one...

I wasn't blown away by the original ensemble and I certainly couldn't see the fuss about Heather Headley... (Sorry to those fans out there) I did see it on Press Night though, I don't know if they got better with time...

I enjoyed this show when I saw it - undemanding musical theatre, but it did what it said on the tin and I had an enjoyable evening. I did not see Heather but then she was "hardly heather there" ! I am very tempted to back and see Beverley Knight.

Im not sure the show selling out with the replacement cast speaks volumes about the show. It wasnt sell out with the original cast, Beverley Knight is the reason this is now selling well (although offers are around now and again) more than the show itself

Went to this on Saturday night  - although there is sterling support from Debbie Kurup, Beverley Knight is really the only reason to see this in my opinion - she is phenomenal. I have never heard those songs sung so well. Although you could argue you would be better off waiting for her to tour and seeing her in concert.
