I apologise if there is already a thread for this, and if there isn't, well now there is!

Any one else planning to see this? I could be wrong but I think it is the next play in the Grandage season, if it is not, its definitley in the season. Judi Dench plays Alice Liddell and Ben Whishaw plays Peter Llewellyn Davies.

I have booked tickets for late April. Always wanted to see Ben Whishaw on stage but never managed it so far.

Yes, should be ok. Judi Dench has form in not choosing best stage parts. But I reckon BW is a cany lad.

Hello

I’ve got two tickets that I’m unable to use as I’m on holiday. Anyone like to buy them at face value?
Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 7.30pm
Royal Circle A1 – A2 – I haven’t sat in the seats but apparently for a perfect view of the stage you need to lean forward.

27.50 each
2 booking fee
1 restoration levy

Which is a total of £61 for the pair. Message me if you are interested

Many thanks

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

I got two tickets for this on the day they went on sale. I have one spare one at the moment which has been in the ticket exchange section for a while now.
It's for Easter Saturday, the matinee for the balcony.
Looking forward to it.
2014 theatre: Blithe Spirit (Gielgud)  Booked: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (Savoy)  Waterbabies (Curve)  View from the Bridge (Young Vic)  Birdland (Royal Court).

That's because Finty picks for her.  Good call on Last of the Hausmanns though.

I think you'll find that was Julie Walters....

I assumed that Boob meant that Judi Dench wisely took her daughter's advice and didn't play in LotH. I wish she'd also rejected Sam Mendes' wheeze of turning the James Bond franchise into an offshoot of Last of the Summer Wine.

Oh, I didn't realise the role had even been offered to Judi. I was under the impression it was written with Walters in mind from the off.

I loved Judi Dench in Skyfall, I thought she was the best thing in a great film. Looking forward to Peter and Alice, both Judi and Ben have been very good when I've seen them before.
