Kristin Scott Thomas was Kate, Lia Williams was Anna. KST is much more suited to the role of Kate, so it'll be interesting to see it the other way around. Which I hopefully will before too much longer. Was hoping for next week but suddenly the performance schedule is "yet to be confirmed"

V interesting: We saw it a few nights back: KST as Anna, and came out saying how glad we were we'd seen it that way round as she suited Anna more than Kate, BUT how we could see her playing Kate just as well!  Sign of a great actress!  She seemed to have a hoot with Anna.
