I know strictly not a musical but has anyone been to see this show yet at the Vaudeville?

I went last night and it was brilliant. The guy has got Liza off to perfection and it is both hilarious and heart warming.

Great audience last night and Sir Cameron sat behind me and seemed be be loving it judging by his laughter.

Yes I saw this on Tuedsday and thought it was utterly brilliant, I'm still laughing about it now. I would urge everyone to go and see it.

Is there any kind of audience participation (or 'victimisation'!) in this show?

I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but is the show a funny but generally respectful impression (a la Christine Pedi) or is it more of a mockery? I guess what I'm trying to say is would Liza fans actually like it?

Im a huge Liza fan and seen her every time she has been in London since 1977 (there given my age away now) and it is very respectful.
Some of the songs are done in fun but some of the songs like The world goes round and Maybe this time are done with great passion.
You can tell that although he makes fun of Liza he loves her and we are laughing with her not at her
