I wish I could say I loved it, but I didn't. The score is sublime, but I thought overall the show fell flat. Scarlett and Victoria were the standouts for me, they were wonderful, but I thought some of the other singing was a bit sub-par.
Maybe my biggest problem is with the show itself though - there are just too many long monologues (or almost monologues) for a show that doesn't have an interval. And the way they were delivered last night, a few of them dragged and plenty of people were fidgeting or even nodding off.
Upper Circle looked to be closed, and side stalls had quite a few empty seats. Mixed reactions from people around me in conversations I overheard while walking out too. I'm glad I saw it, but I'd have been disappointed if I'd paid full price (got front stalls from TKTS).

I didn't know what to expect, as I only knew the basic plot line and had never listened to the cast recording. I was really glad that I went and the two hours flew quickly. Also liked the monologues as they told the character's stories.
I dayseated and the £19.50 are one of West-End's best deals. Approx. ten people waited when the box office opened at 10am. Stage height was also OK, but I firstly saw said chorus line when leaving.
At the Matinee, Genevieve Nicole was on as Judy, Marc Leslie as Al and Georgie Ashford as Maggie.
Liked the cast, and Scarlett and Victoria were also for me the two stand-outs.
