I saw the film and didn't like it but I love the stage version. I have seen it twice and going for a 3rd time in April to see the new cast.

Me too, I was distinctly under-awed by the film, and really didn't think I would like the show, but was persuaded to go and I really love it. Have been back since and would go again.
You can get much cheaper tickets than that if you try the Once website, or direct from the theatre. Although this may change if Arthur Darvill proves very popular...

If you can wait until the day buying a ticket on atg gets cheaper through the day, or rather the cheaper areas expand, don't know if this is just for atg cards but it was a tip I got here.

It was the first anniversary & a Charity Gala in aid of Oxfam's Mother appeal. A few celebs; we spotted the eclectic mix of Michael Ball, Mark Foster, Eliza Doolittle, Maryam D'arbo & Goldie, but I read later that quite a few others were there.
New cast were very good; although a few sound issues meant some bits of dialogue were inaudible & didn't quite get the laughs they usually do. Arthur was quite different to Declan, he played it even more weedy & insecure, and was not quite as perfect vocally (although I quite liked that) - and he needs to work on the mumbling when speaking! I like both interpretations of the character.
I didn't think the Guy's father or the Girl's mother characters matched the previous actors', but enjoyed the rest of the new cast, especially Tim Prottey Jones as Billy.
Interesting to see new takes on the show, I felt that overall the emphasis was more on The Girl as Arthur plays so low key, but as I love Zrinka that's fine with me.

He did the matinee on Saturday but they didn't announce it. I'm guessing he wanted a "quiet" first performance to settle in before the gala night yesterday.
