Yet another 5 stars from Spencer. I just don't trust his judgement at all, but I want to see this. It's on the "to do" list.

3 stars from Billington but mainly as he isn't keen on the play - glowing review for the cast particularly Cattrall.

I think it's just a bad wig...

Still really want to see this, it sounds pretty great

I used to like Mark Shenton, he used to be quite a fair theatre reviewer/commentator but really gone off him lately and unfollowed him after the whingy 'Matilda was robbed' article he wrote

Saw this last night and enjoyed it - I would agree it isn't a great play but this is as good a production of it as we're ever likely to get.

The bedroom scenes are the strongest helped by Cattrall's character being vastly more interesting than Chance but the other stuff is a bit of a chore. Acting is strong all round, Numrich has a hard job to make that character work but he does it and Cattrall is sensational.

Saw it on Monday. Agreed, it's the bedroom scenes that are the strongest, and it could so easily be a 100 minute no interval two hander.

Sidebar - Matilda WAS robbed.

Agree. Also he recently seems to be reviewing (on twitter, certainly) actors' bodies rather than acting. Seth Numrich a prime example. And he whinges like anything about Trafalgar Studio 2 and his bad back.

I used to follow him on twitter but got tired of his moaning and perving.
