This play has pretty much sold out, so looks like its critic proof.

The problem with the play is not the acting, but the story itself. Eventhough its only 2h long, it does seem to drag in the middle, and quite alot of the play happens off-stage/on camera. I felt the play only really got interesting in the last 15mins, and if that had the same crackle at the start it would have been a far more involving play. Just abit dull!

Disappointing! Gillian never conveys an aging actress at all. Her portrayal is much too glamorous. Lloyd is not convincing either. I think the entire performance was lacking and hope it can get back on track. Bill’s welcome home party scene was absolutely decimated. The use of the back drops were deplorable rather than having the party as the enter of the scene.

The performance never took off and was very flat.

We came all the way from San Francisco to see and were not happy!

Great performances from all the cast. Gillian Anderson was especially good and stole the show but all the rest including Lily James were all also great. Lily James changing from an innocent young thing into the diva herself was especially well done. She is a fine actress. Of course we already know how good Gillian Anderson is and she certainly did not disappoint.

An interesting way of producing the play which allowed for continuous 2 hour action without an interval - my knees were aching by the end.

The only down side was that a minor character ot two were perhaps slightly misscast and neither Gillian Anderson nor Lily James can sing but luckily they only have to sing for a very few seconds and did not detract form the overall performance.

Well worth going to see - if you can, Probably will be a sell out.
