Saw it at Theatre Royal Nottingham last week - laughed my socks off, great fun!

We went to last Saturday's matinee - very enjoyable. Applause for Angela Lansbury's every entrance/exit wasn't OTT as I had feared, quite restrained really. Didn't notice her hesitating or fluffing any lines, loved her "trance dance". Rest of the cast very good too and I agree with VDCNI, I thought Jemima Rooper got Elvira exactly right - spoilt, demanding, childish, manipulative but irresistible.

Missed nothing of the office/bathroom from my seat towards the left of the auditorium.
Really enjoyed this, 3+ hours but never dragged. Was dubious about the modern "Camp Bastion" type setting, but worked well, bags of testosterone and machismo. All the cast very good - Desdemona girly without being wet. We can see Iago's a wrong'un from the opening scene when he slyly pockets Roderigo's ciggies. And what a lovely voice Adrian Lester has.

Bagged a stalls seat for the matinee on 24th April! About a dozen left (all stalls) for that performance.

Saw the matinee today and was pleasantly surprised after reading the largely lukewarm reviews on here. Very enjoyable, and Abby's post above pretty much sums up my thoughts. Art87 - the same two understudies on again today (seemed fine to me) and I disagree about "stuffed with racist and homophobic jokes", those were the attitudes of the time and here they're being held up for ridicule.
Looked full-ish to me, though three empty seats beside me meant I could "upgrade" (shuffle along) from A2 Royal Circle to a slightly less sideways view.
