I have booked front row stalls tickets but two of our party are only 5' 2" tall.  The tickets just say "may need to loook up".  Will that be a problem?  Does the Savoy have booster seats?  (They needed them for Betty Blue Eyes at Novello!).

I'm only about 5ft 3" ish, I had no problem, I did have to look up and it is difficult to follow the whole stage but it didn't ruin my experience of the show.  As to your booster seat question, sorry, I can't answer that one.

That would require Kenwright to spend money.  I think they're relying on it being on the ATG Website (to book tickets)

It was a web site or a new striker

Saw the show on its pre-west end stop in Nottingham.  Wavering over whether to see again at The Savoy - had heard that they might alter some of the staging for west end that it was felt wasn't suitable for the provinces - anyone seen yet in London who also saw it on the short tour?

I thought Will Young was brilliant - much to my surprise to be honest.... Michelle Ryan was just bland and the ensemble looked like they really couldnt be bothered most of the time.. but it was worth seeing just for Will

Saw this last Saturday and enjoyed it. Thought Will Yound and Matt Rawle were very good. Not too impressed by Michelle Ryan.

What really bothered me was that Michelle's mic was turned up really loud when she was singing and you could hear every little breath she made. Found that very distracting.

I saw the show on Friday 5th October and loved it.

Having seen the previous West End run with the amazing Anna Maxwell Martin I worried that I wouldnt enjoy Michelle Ryans Sally but actually I was surprised. She really went to town on her numbers and I thought "Cabaret" was sung with emotion.

I would prefer to see this "darkened" up a bit and it does lack some of the liberation and excesses that came across so well in the prior run. The re-staging of "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" is amazing, incredibly sinister and thought provoking - excellent in fact!

If i have one criticsm its that many audience members appeared to be there for Will Young only and not really interested in the show, its story or other cast members. It became really uncomfortable in places where the fans were whopping and cheering (as if this is the Will Young concert), especially after a really sinister "If You Could See Her" most people are shocked or at the very least a little uneasy at the end of this song, yet the people next to me continued their whooping adoration.

That said I think that Will Young is perfect in the role of Emcee, camp, creepy, fun but strangely sexy......

Wonder if it'll extend if the rumours of Finding Neverland being delayed are true. The Savoy's not having much luck with securing new shows.
