I saw this yesterday evening. Turned up to the box office at 7pm and still got a day seat in front row of stalls (A2 near the end). I found this to be a bit of a yawn fest to be honest, the first act barely raising any laughs from the audience. They need to trim this down as the running time is 2 hrs 50 mins which is way too long. Patricia Hodge was very good but the rest of the cast were average.
Stalls were only two-thirds full so after the interval I moved a bit further back and got an empty row to myself. Unfortunately, I fell asleep in the second half as I was feeling tired. Did I miss anything?
Not my favourite Coward play. Blithe Spirit is much better. Mind you, the rear stalls seats at the Harold Pinter are surprising comfortable with lots of legroom so you can really stretch out and have a proper snooze! ;-)
Will be interesting to read the reviews!
