You often seem to go to opening nights. I always suspect you get better performances at them, what do you think ?
Isn't is because the audience are more supportive?  I went to see this last week and had a great time. Adam Godley is fun.

Is this the new play going to the Duchess?  If so then I think its actually Nica Burns producing. Exciting though. I love Kathleen Turner.

Went last night.  I had high expectations for this and was worried it might not live up to it, but thankfully (given that I bought in advance and not a day seat like usual) it did.  I agree that Mojo feels very different to Butterworth's other plays ( well I only saw Jerusalem but have read the rest) but I really liked that. I felt that the period he has set it in feels very exciting, like they are on the brink of something new but no-one knows quite what, in a similar way to what is happening to the characters on-stage. Their 50's hair styles are fab too.  I thought it was very hypnotic, Butterworth's command of language is fantastic and the performances just blew me away.  In all honesty I wasn't sure Rupert Grint would do it for me but I thought he was superb, really impressive, you'd never think it was his stage debut.  I think its unfair to say he is outclassed as I think his performance is very natural and understated.  But yes, like everyone else who I heard walking out of the theatre, I could wax lyrical about Ben Whishaw and Daniel Mays. The others were really good too, even the kid that plays Silver Johnnie.  If you haven't bought a ticket for this yet I'd highly recommend you do as I reckon it will sell out soon.  I left it too late to see Chimerica again and was gutted so chuffed I got in early on this one and will be trying to day seat it later on in the run to see if it has changed at all.

Just booked a ticket for a preview. £10 in the 'slips' - what a steal! Anyone seen it before or read it?
