I also saw this night - I was suprised how empty the Old Vic was but thought that may be down to the fact it's just opened? Like others here I thought Plimpton was fantastic, Daniel Lapaine and Clare Higgins were brilliant with what they had to work with.

While it was nice to see the Old Vic on the round again I was sat in row L of the Stage Stalls & was slightly frustrated by the fact that the actors spent a large part of the time with their backs to us - particularaly during the big revelation scene & the final monologue from Plimpton - it was hard to connect with the actors when you're starring at the backs of their heads!

Time out have a £15 ticket offer, not sure if it's a good deal or for existing low priced seats.

I think it's existing low priced seats because if you click on the offer the £15 seats show up as "Band D Restricted View".

I was sat in the upper circle at the Old Vic a while back when there was a particularly heavy rain storm & water started leaking through the ceiling & onto the audience a few row in front of me. It just stuck in my mind because I remember feeling really sorry for them!

Not sure if it's these kind of leaks that would weaken plaster & eventually break away.

I saw this last night & really enjoyed it....Douglas Hodge was brilliant as I expected.

Visually it was fantastic & we came out humming some of the songs. We were sat in the second row of the Grand Circle & the elavator scene worked brilliantly.

A great feel good, pre-Christmas show!

A while back when we went to see Trelawny of the Wells at the Donmar & I had an empty seat between myself & the next woman along. I was enjoying the extra space for a chnage then just as the lights went down for the second half, two girls sprung down from the standing section at the back & squeezed themselves into the one vacant seat! As the lights had gone down & Act 2 had started I couldn't say "what are you doing?!" So spent the second half with one of their butt cheeks practically in my lap. No amount of shuffling or sighing seemed to indicate to her I was uncomfortable & at no point did she say "is it ok we sit here or do you mind being squashed for the rest of the play?"

Talk about people being oblivious!
