In Topic: Anyone Familiar With New Victoria Theatre, Woking?

05 June 2013 - 11:37 AM

We usually sit in Row A and there is LOTS of leg room.  There is no rake hat close BUT the stage is really high and deep at Woking. I would have thought you need to worry about getting a pain in the neck looking up rather than worrying about seeing over taller people.  I don't know about the orchestra - I know that often these days they are placed offstage.

I saw Mormon within it's first few weeks of opening and loved it, thought it was practically the second coming. This completely blew it out of the water. I didn't expect anything to be so magically beautiful, touching, heart breaking and funny at the same time. Loved the on stage bar, the pre-show show and how it seamlessly moves into the show so that it feels like you there in an irish pub. The two leads were outstanding (never mind the fact they are both stunning) and I really hope they are considered for awards next year. I cried my eyes out throughout the second act and at the end! There are no words really to describe its sheer beauty, it's just faultless.
Truly a hidden gem of the west end. I will tell everyone I know to see it, and would return in a heartbeat.
Totally agree with everything: cannot wait to see the show again!

In Topic: To Kill A Mocking Bird

We saw the production last night and we thought it was superb.  It will stay with me for many years to come.  It was one of those productions where everything was perfect: the cast, set, costumes, script, music and lighting.
I had to study “To Kill a Mockingbird” in 1978 when I was doing my CSE English exam.  I found the book very distressing and I have not re-read it since.  I have never watched the film and I did not know what to expect when we arrived at the theatre last night.  I was mesmerised from start to finish.  By the interval I was so moved I could not speak.  The second half maintained that emotion.  The standing ovation was so well-deserved.
