That's funny, but be careful that level of humour will probably get shot down on here.


#267719 The Amen Corner - Olivier Theatre

First preview last night, came in at 2.30mins.  Despite one uneven accent, and a few scenes where the pacing slowed, fabulous piece of theatre.    Special praise for Cecelia Noble as the coniving Sister Moore, Marianne Jean Baptiste in the lead and Sharon D Clarke as her sister Odessa.    Have I posted this in the right section?  I wasn't sure whether it was classed as a play or a musical, anyway whatever it is, run to get a ticket, a great night of theatre.

Is this Rupert Goold's audition to take over the reigns?

Surprised no one has posted yet now previews have started.  Anyway, despite a few line flubs it was an hilarious evening, well written, acted and one of the most spectacular sets I've been at the National recently.  

John Lithgow commands the stage as you'd expect and brings the house down with some business in Act II.  

I wouldn't call it a musical but there are a number of well written musical numbers which are also very entertaining.
