Shouldn't be too bad I think.
And who could see that the road would twist

I haven't seen Top Hat, but for Midnight Tango I sat in the front row and the stage was very high, I certainly missed a lot of the footwork when dancers weren't at the very front of the stage. Further back gives a much better view if you really want to see the footwork, but then it can feel distant from the action. I would say about row F or G is probably ideal.

the atmosphere in the house was electric. i have seen this show before and wasn't overly enthused about it to be honest. but i was offered a free ticket to tonights show.. the cast were offered loads of tickets (i think to make the theatre fuller!!)
its a good show, but i don't think it has a west end home for long.
strallen and chambers are great dancers there is no disputing that, but i find their performances wooden. once again- i left feeling no great since of excitement or inspiration.
Overall, this was a pleasant night, but it wasn’t the blockbuster I was hoping for. In retrospect, I much preferred Crazy for You, which had wittier dialogue and a much less wooden leads.
the rest of the company are far stronger and characters such as afonsos 'alberto bedini".
The story is a fluffy sort of romcom affair, with Shakespearean misunderstandings, which is really a vehicle for the wonderful song and dance. However, Martin Ball and Vivian Parry, who play the Hardwicks, bring some necessary uumph to the tale and offer solid and funny performances with excellent comic timing. The relationship between Horace Hardwick and Jerry Travers is also utterly credible. Ricardo Afonso plays the role of Alberto Beddini. I wasn’t completely sure of either the character or the acting at first but by the end of the show he had the audience in stitches. Charisma he has aplenty and can work an audience. Stephen Boswell as Bates is tres drole. He has the part down to a tee.
all in all, i prefer singing in the rain/ crazy for you!
