I also wished that they had used more of the stage, particularly during the dance at the end of Act 1. It was great but the size of the set made the dance routine look bunched up at times
However the musical is a ball of a time. I always enjoy these musicals where the plot would turn into a complete farce.

Ovarall was dissapointed and think it needs some changes. The show peaks in the first 15 minutes and at act one finale. "Top Hat" should be finale of act 2 not act 1 or at least reprise it. LOT more discipline needed in set tap numbers - poor liason between some chorus members. Did not get the wow factor and despite an enthusiastic audience there was not a standing ovation. A few did stand but only a few. Last 20 minures drags and needs cutting by 10 minutes. Forecast 3 star reviews.

Totally agree with your comments on it looking cheap - the set did nothing at all for me. The painted backdrops felt a bit old hat and added very little. I thought we had gone passed that stage in the WE?
Let's see how long the coach groups can keep it alive!
