Hullo, hullo, is anyone there? unsure.gif

Anyway... Boeing Boeing.  I saw it in previews so I can't say for sure but my guess is it will be good when it's run in a bit.  Some of the actors were still clearly learning their lines the first time I saw it and still clearly trying out how to say their lines the second time.  But, Mark Rylance and Frances de la Tour were good fun and Michelle Gomez was totally amazing.  As soon as she came on the whole audience lifted and she carried them with her right to the end.  I suspect (hope) I saw glimpses of what it could be rather than the finished article and I'm interested enough to consider forking out for a ticket after press night.

It's a silly comedy about a man who has three girlfriends and what happens when they turn up at the same time.  You kind of have to be there.  biggrin.gif

There's some offers via Get Into London Theatre if you want to book in advance. I got stalls seats for 25.

Yes, it has been on TKTS. It's really much better than one would expect. Some very funny performances from Rylance and Gomez.
