I'm going out on a limb here (I do realise) but I reckon this is one of the best shows currently playing in the West End right now.So subtle, yet so powerful with every casr member working to bring this story to life.
Saw this on Saturday - so still in previews - like most people on here i nabbed a good priced preview ticket. shame there aren't many left! but i would recommend booking now because i think this is going to be very popular.
as everyone has pretty much mentioned the performances are, well, breath-taking. literally had to pinch myself watching ben whishaw who plays a character unlike anything ive ever seen him do. daniel mays is exceptional too. colin morgan is also subtly brilliant with a strong performance from rupert grint. i definitely dont envy the guy who has to hang upside down!!
another great set design from ultz (who has previously worked with rickson on jerusalsem and the river).
i'd argue the plot is electrifying for most of the time. the balance between humour and darkness is unnerving. overall a brilliant revival. it's just one of those productions you just have to marvel at the talent onstage.
Saw this on Friday night and admittedly only originally booked to see it because of the cast. Ben Whishaw was brilliant as already mentioned by other posts, Daniel Mays was a revelation and was pleasantly surprised by Rupert Grint. Overall I thought the play was very good but the second half seemed a bit too long for me. I would have loved to have seen it again but distance, my purse and the fact that its pretty much sold out means not this time alas!
