Johnny Gibbon plays the part so well I can imagine this could well continue to play long after Luke Treadaway eventually leaves.

We'd booked especially to see Luke again, but Johnny was on and although we were initially disappointed he gave just as moving a performance.

Does anyone know the maximum number of day seat tickets they'll sell to one person? Also, would a 9 year-old be able to see enough from the day-seat front row?

Thank you.
Ooh, that Bernadette Shaw - what a chatterbox!

You can buy 2pp and I've heard the stage is quite high so it depends on how tall he is :)

I'm baffled by the enormous praise this has received. I saw it last night (for the first time) and found it inventive in parts with a great central performance but pretty unremarkable overall, as well as being far too long. I found all the other actors lacking in terms of basic believability - particularly the parents - and Niamh Cusack's is one of the most affected, unnatural and irritating performances I can remember seeing.

I accept that many others love the play, so I'm not wanting to start an argument, but thought it was worth piping up as a (lone) dissenting voice!

Hallelujah.  I thought I was the only one!

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

And how is this relevant to the thread topic? Although a fascinating snippet of information. But ....keep taking the medication.

Can anyone advise whether I'm likely to be ok for two day seats for a Saturday evening performance if I arrive at 8:30am?

Also does the box office open on the dot of 10am or do they ever start selling earlier?

Thanks!

Risky. We got there at 9am last time and missed out (matinee and eve had gone by the time we got to the front).

They opened on the dot though.

A bit of feedback - I heeded your warnings and got there at 7:50am yesterday. I was fourth in the queue (although all the people in front of me were buying for the matinee so I was first for tickets for the evening). They were sayin they were surprised that it wasn't busier as it quite often is. I think the queue was probably 'full' at about 8:30am but without counting how many tickets people were buying and for which show, it was hard to tell! I didn't stick around once I had my tickets so don't know how many people managed to get them.

As for the show, it was definitely as good as at the Cottesloe. I thought the new cast members worked just as well, and the changes to the set made the show grow into the larger space. The stage is quite high if you're sat in the front row but I don't think we missed anything.
