Anything is better than the Apollo.  But I think you'll be all right at 10.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

I'm possibly dayseating for this on Saturday for the matinee. Anyone know what the queues will be like because I won't be able to get there for 10 I'm afraid. If not I imagine they will have some balcony seats left... anyone know what the views from balcony are like there? Better than the Apollo?

I managed to get evening tickets around 10.30am online two Saturdays ago. Aim for row BB over row AA as its excessively high, BB for 10 each was a bargain (and AA was empty, but available to buy online).
If I stay awake, it must be good.

Yes, no worries day seating this as it is not selling especially well. I was just not convinced by either the play or the performances of this at all.

I saw this the night before and really enjoyed it - good, sophisticated adult entertainment, and I couldn't find fault with any of the actors - I particularly liked Owen Teale as the hubby who strays. Annabel Scholey was - as has already been noted - absolutely gorgeous. I have to admit I was surprised at the amount of nudity in it!

In the programme, Peter Nichols described it as "a serious bourgeois play, and you can also enjoy the erotic element" - an unusually dispassionate and accurate assessment of a play by its author, I thought...

I was in the third row (row A) - perfect view. It was busier than I thought it would be, bearing in mind the ticket offers that have been doing the rounds, and it got a very good reception. Anyway, I'd recommend it...

Really liked this, had zero expectations going in after the feedback on the board but fortunately it worked for me. I like the double actor thing which is i guess a bit of a deal breaker if you don't and whilst it took a while to get going when it did it had been hooked. Bargain £10 monday night seats in row A so up nice and close to see Zoe Wanamaker/Samantha Bond slowly breaking. Had rather too much fun playing spot the difference in clothing with Latecomer but that all added to the enjoyment.

Do you think the joke 'Is that a paintbrush in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?' was bandied about in rehearsal?
And is the glass meant to break in the nightmare sequence? I felt that they took a while to clean it up, that's all.
Brilliant though.

I don't remember any glass breaking in the nightmare scene when I saw it.  Mind you, I was probably too busy laughing to notice.
