Radcliffe ain't bad - he's got the physical poise just right - and there are a couple of excellent performances from Gillian Hanna and Ingrid Craigie as Billy's aunts. But it doesn't cut it. The Michael Grandage season is a bit of a disappointment.
And don't get me started on the audience.....

Beyond this I was underwhelmed by the play, I was tied off all the twists by the end and once PH2 had pointed out the strange staging I did become somewhat fixiated on it. DR was good I think, his body must be taking some pounding from the physicality of the role, but nicely done. He comes across as quite a likeable unassuming chap in interview so was pleased that he seems to be continuing to cemet himself a decent reputation. I thought the aunts probably had the most interesting roles and were well done.
If I'd been sat closer and had, had a less hysterical audience it might have been better but not overly convinced.
Oh and there were several children there or about 4 and 6, in premium stall seats, seemed a rather odd family trip out?

I predict that the consensus on this board for the next two will be:
A Midsummer Night's Dream - "I was a bit bored and disappointed. I expected fresh insights into Shakespeare's masterpiece which I have seen 57 times before. All the people around me cackled with laughter whenever David Walliams and Sheridan Smith were onstage."
Henry V - "I was a bit bored and disappointed. This was a bit stagey and West End-y. The stage was too high. There was too much rain in the battle scenes. Jude Law was very good when he took his top off. All the people around me cackled with laughter whenever a British soldier was killed. Why was there only one member of the chorus? How long is it?"
