Loved it, every minute. Shows that you can update and change and make all sorts of contemporary references without mucking up the play. Special mentions to Ray Fearon the best Mark Antony I've ever seen and Cyril Nri, Cassius and Paterson Joseph as Brutus. Two hours and ten minutes no interval. Those of you who have read my previous comments about no intervals will realise how good this production is that I think it worked v well this way.
Nice atmosphere in the theatre, they play the music in the bar after the show.

good on yer, Greg

Check the ticket prices for each venue - that should easily make your mind up.

There's got to be some deals for this in Town.  Seems to be loads of tickets left.  I'm hoping for very cheap or maybe some papering for it during the Olympics.
If, for some strange reason you care what I've seen, it's all here:

I agree - my view of these ticket prices is that they already have the TKTS discount factored in (like the Old Vic prices for Duchess of Malfi for example) - I'm waiting too.

Thanks for this. Last week's edition of Radio Times (16-22 June) made it look as if it was on this week! I wondered why I couldn't see it in the schedules!

Will set my PVR for this and "The Hollow Crown" season.
