Just a heads up for potential day-seaters...I got there today at just past 6:00 am and I barely got a seat. They have around 12 seats available and then 18 standing room spots generally, so everyone after me got standing room. So, if you are wanting to sit down, I would get there EARLY.

I would be hugely surprised. I was amazed she even did this play, what with the macular degeneration and all.

Me, too, popcultureboy. That's why I got my tix asap. That said, I'm sure Dame Judi would love to be able to work forever.

We see the play in one week.

Everyone, enjoy!

Well I have seen her on west end so it's no biggy, but I'd quite like to see her in something better thn Madam De Sade.

So I bit the bullet and day seated. I got there at 6am, and there was around 16 people ahead of me. Still, I managed to grab a pair of matinee seats so was rather happy. But, I hated it. I thought it started rather well, but it got lost around a third of the way. However it would have seemed I was very much in the minority based on audience reactions... Glad to see others here share my impressions!

My thoughts exactly.
