Anyway, those are obviously not my views. I am seeing it in a month's time. Hopefully it will have properly bedded in by then.

Apparently it was 3 hours 15 last night. But it sounds like they had problems last night and during rehearsals due to the "technical complexity" of the production
Hopefully it will have settled down by the time I see it in a few weeks!

I loved 'The Changeling' so know what to expect, apparently some didn't......
Saw the 1st previews (or rather the dress rehearsal!) for Marlowe's Edward II at the NT last night. Shocking and compelling!
Edward II at the nationalis brilliant, crazy & fun!!
off topic... thoroughly enjoyed first preview of Edward II
Loved Edward II. Some will hate it. But there's no doubt the inside of
First preview of

5 stars for
Front row and opening night of Edward II at the National- was brilliant!
Everyone must see Edward II at The National. It's FABULOUS.
It's simply wonderful seeing
Mixed to positive
Went to the national theatre for the first time tonight. Was very good but does any play really need to be over 3hrs long?
Also, it has some big flaws in 1st half that needs fixing, but really loved Edward II - oddly surreal, intense and rewardingly challenging.
We went to see that Edward II at the NT tonight. Mostly enjoyed it; won't say too much more as it was the very first night, bless 'em.
Edward II at the National Theatre. Preview night 1. Pretty bad. Felt like student improv. Cheap gimmicks. Needs serious work. Largely guff.
I'm not saying that Edward II was a disaster, but many people left after the interval. It also went on 30 mins longer than it should have.
Edward II might be one of those plays that will be judged on % audience walkout. 21:45 second half start! Actors good when allowed to act
Negative and posted before end of show
My ghast has been flabbered by what could be the worst play I have ever seen. Left at intermission
Edward II at National. First half guff, second half no idea. I'm home already. NT really needs a QAT department. It's up there with Fram.
Left at interval (a rarity for us). Did second half improve?
I don't mind that
And from a different angle –
Lady behind me tutted at men kissing each other. She did not return after interval. Apparently someone didn't read their history.
