When I walked past the Theatre Royal Drury Lane yesterday evening there were a dozen or more FOH staff stading on the steps at the theatre entrance. They seemed to be being addressed by a man. Some sort of last-minute usher traing before the postponed opening perhaps? I've certainly never seen anything like it before.

The dress rehearsal was excellent... went straight through with no stopping. Pure imagination is in the show. Its hard to know what to say without spoiling things but it was really fabulous and very very well cast. Oompah Loompas very cleverly done.

I hope these questions won't bring up spoilers...
1) Is Douglas Hodge every bit as good as we hope/expect?
2) Just how lavish and colourful is it?
3) Is it closest to the Gene Wilder, Johnny Depp or something very new and different?
