Personally I wouldn't mind Mel C as Ellen - she can belt 'em out which is more than Jonathan Pryce ever could.

If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

First preview is 3rd May, 2014 as mentioned above by craftymiss, Press Night is Wednesday 21st May, 2014. I believe no public tickets are available for this performance (at the moment) apart from the 100 tickets they released to those who queued at the Prince Edward yesterday - including me! Haha ;)

£4.4m is good but tickets are plenty available in the Delfont Mackintosh website. The box office thing was a very good PR by Cameron,
