Was there on Tuesday, avoid the balcony as the sound up there is dreadful!! Must have missed about 1 line in 10 owing to either poor acoustics or the show not being sound designed for the theatre its in.
...and for such a big award winner I was expecting more, its all perfectly competent but the material doesnt sing and there are a couple of scenes (the we'll explain later and the other policeman) which just seem off in the context of what is essentially a serious piece.
.....and some twat in green start taking photos with his flash going off from the back row near the end of the show and had to be stopped by an irate person sat next to him as there were no staff to be seen.

Don't know whether this answer is still relevant as the cast is changing in a week, but last Monday (when Johnny Gibbon, not Luke Treadway, played Christopher) she dayseated from 8:30 and it was perfectly fine.
As for the play, I saw it last week, it was my first time at the West End, but I had seen it twice at the Cottesloe, one of them in previews - no expectations, no press reviews, fresh as it can be. And there is a difference: some of it around the cast (Paul Ritter as Christopher's father was heartbreaking and somewhat irreplaceable) but some of it it's the temperature in the room: it's slicker now, very confident, but some of the nervous energy from last year is missing. Maybe it's because this cast approaches the end of a lengthy run.

Most definitely a real live puppy, cute as a button. Also Toby is a real live rat, in case you were too far away to tell.
