I went to the matinee on Thursday, knowing nothing of the story or the score. It was fantastic! Can't recommend it enough. Such a good use of space at the theatre and a great sound from the cast and band. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours of theatre.

I really wanted to enjoy this having heard the preview track on the website.  However, I felt very underwhelmed.  The first act felt too long and full of unmemorable songs for the most part and act two felt very clunky.  

I know it's a preview and hopefully it will tighten, but I just didn't find the story massively interesting.  I also felt the traverse staging didn't work and left for a very small playing space that felt cramped, unlike "Titanic" that made great use of the space there.  

Some nice orchestrations though.

Not one to avoid, but not one to rush to see.

I thought he was dreadful.  And he delivers the final line akin to his "Narrator" in "Blood Brothers"!

Luce66 - I feel your pain when it comes to booking a pair and it won't let you because it's a 3.  A bit cheeky, but when there are 3, add a single ticket to your basket, then close your web browser.  Then open it up again and select the 2 you want (it will let you do that while the single one is still "blocked out").  Then book away! :)

Ensemble in the sense that they're all equally responsible for what a mess it is?
