What, he was laughing at his own play?  That is bad behaviour!

I've long forgotten the original production so was happy to see this again and the reviews encouraged me, but in view of the prices (and day-seating not being an option for me), I've booked to see it when the tour reaches Richmond - much cheaper for the date/time/seat I've chosen.

What a good idea, xanderl!  I've been racking my brain for any examples and drawn a blank, but shall keep an eager lookout from now on...

OH and I saw this last week and both really enjoyed it.  I'd never had much awareness of the Kinks (unlike, say, with the Beatles or Stones, about whom you can't help knowing a bit even if you aren't a fan), so was surprised to find how familiar the songs were, and it was interesting to learn some of the background.  We both thought it was well done; the audience clearly loved it and I expect there will be a transfer.  What a novelty too, to see a musical at Hampstead Theatre!

I know not everyone has the option to attend a matinee, but if you are able to and have any concerns about the safety of a neighbourhood and/or travel, opting for a matinee is a good compromise and - though due to the journey length from Sussex - is my preference when visiting Watford.  It is a shame that the station is a brisk 10-minute walk from the theatre and town centre, but it's straight along a main road and there is a good service to Euston (and, unfortunately once hourly only, to Clapham Junction).  I certainly feel safer in Watford than I do in Brixton; if anything, the latter is the place I would rather avoid at night.  As for the risk that the show will "play to half-empty houses", not according to what I've seen on the online booking system, on which I've also been keeping a keen eye, since I have yet to decide on which day to see this.
