I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt for a first preview but it has a long way to climb to be even close to the enjoyment I got from the original RSC production or the Donmar revival of (OMG it seems like yesterday!) 1977 and 2001. I am envious of younger theatre-goers who can come fresh to a production like this and not be disappointed by expectations. I was slightly taken aback by comments from a couple in front of me who claim to be SRB’s biggest fans and were calling this the best thing he has ever done – love is blind. He is of course fabulous and obviously having  lots of fun, and it is an unusually energetic part  for him but it is hardly stretching his theatrical muscles and unfortunately some of supporting playing is just not strong enough – YET. Hopefully things will come together a bit more in the remaining previews.

So was Viva Forever when it had it's first preview but I don't hold much hope for that. Greatly looking forward to POP though.

Oops. Row C at end. Can't see back of stage. Why did I book this? Hope the actors are tall! Might not see above SRB's waist. And no! Tallest man in world just sat in front of me. Not my night.

Bag check at entrance to theatre. Anything going on?

Lynette, are you managing to post from the actual theatre? That 's extremely impressive!

Seeing this before Christmas, looking forward to it.
