Very nice play. We enjoyed. I like old-school plays. And I love A. Christie's books since my teenage years. Characters were brilliant too. It was nice to be upgraded as well.

Its slow to get going and not that tense. The acting is fine and there are some nice musical clues, but how this lasted 58 years is surprising, as it lacks any theatre magic. The twist itself is not that mega.

My daughter and I attended the Tuesday, September 8 performance. We had bad seats in the balcony and were unable to see the entire stage. We were originally told the performance was sold out--but that was not factual. During the intermission we moved to some empty seats. We truly enjoyed every moment of the performance, and were both able to guess "who done it"! Hats off to the actors, producers, and everyone single person connected with the production. We were told which number performance it was, but darned if I remember. Can anyone let me know? I'd like to note it in my playbill.

At The Mousetrap I sat behind two Americans. She, bright and blonde, chattered throughout, he, short and stunted, just grunted. She, Lucille, loved every moment while he, Barney, hated it. At the denoument there was the usual shocked silence. "Honey!" trilled Lucille "You were Right!"

For the first time Barney spoke actual words, in a low gruff voice, " I am always right!" he said.

The play was very good too.

My son arranged to take me to see The Mousetrap on my vist to see him as he remembered that I had mentioned it as a "bucket list" item of mine. The production is wonderful, truly evocative of the period and the beautiful theatre feels cosy & intimate. This is not merely a West End play, but a total theatrical experience contributed to by an excellent cast who were fully committed. I can now kick the bucket satisfied that I have shared this marvellous experience!

My daughter bought tickets for my 60th birthday nearly two years ago. Unfortunately took it for granted that we would be able to find a disabled parking bay and did not. My daughter was very upset that we lost out and was determined for us to try once again but this time we did our research more thoroughly and was able to make it this time. Absolutely wonderful - we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Well worth the years of wait to see this.

I must also commend the staff for their excellent service and treatment of me as a disabled person. Nothing was too much and you can see it was not something they were doing as part of their job - the lady who saw to my needs showed true care.

My daughter kept saying 'it's in its 60th glorious year and I want to go' well; we went, we saw and we were both over awed at the performance (13 Aug). Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I love murder mystery and Agatha Christie's sleuthing prowess is legendary and no wonder. The cast were all excellent but I have to own up to 'falling in love' with Christopher Wren, his mannerisms had me giggling like a schoolgirl and I'm 62! Well done to everyone involved in putting on the show, I've no doubt they'll be another 60 years to run yet.

Decided last minute on a day out with my 13 &11 year old daughters to go & see this great play. We all enjoyed it thoroughly & had lots of fun trying to guess who done it. Definitely highly recommended ........
