On the whole I really enjoyed it, though. I thought the woman playing Brutus was terrific, she really drew me into it. The setting worked in a really interesting way and sent me away thinking.

I was also there this afternoon. Perhaps as I was in the Stalls, I actually didn't notice any empty seats - I did have a look round particularly in view of the comments here about people not turning up. It was a noticeably younger audience than the usual matinee crowd. Also, due to the seating and loudness, less snoozers than usual!

Only two of them were front row seats, and it did seem like a younger and more diverse audience than usual, so I presume it was the oldies who daren't leave their houses in the snow who couldn't make it.
There was serious transport disruption due to snow and it's a no latecomers admitted show with no interval. Of course some people won't have made it in time.

Of course, in a theatre as small as the Donmar having a bunch of drama students in suddenly makes the audience seem much younger (and more diverse). At the likes of The National you don't notice them among the sea of grey!

The same thing happened at the Thursday matinee at the Orange Tree last week: you don't usually see anyone really young and I'm used to seeming the youngest by far, so even one teenager or twenty-something would stand out. However, on this occasion there was a whole row filled by what turned out to be American drama students, who therefore attracted almost as much attention during the interval as did the play itself before and after! And they joined in with the post-show discussion, which was great.
