I submitted a review yesterday - no sign of it on this site as yet. I am writing again because my review turns out to be so similar to that of Sarah Denne above (1/11/17 i.e. 4 months ago). A wonderful play - BUT her complaint of 'inaudible lines' to those of us stuck in the Grand Circle was mine. My disappointment has turned to anger on noting that her request to pass on the comment ("as it is important you should know this") has either been ignored or, if passed on, not been acted on. We had been so looking forward (from our home in Northumberland) to this play, and so were so disappointed to come away feeling 'short-changed'. We can't all afford to sit in the Stalls and the Dress Circle - as Ms Denne points out, judging by the laughter of their occupants, they heard it all. If theatres are going to successfully attract a wider range of audiences, they must not neglect those in the cheap seats. Gielgud Theatre - please please take note (and a refund wouldn't go amiss!).

I was angry.i found nothing original or particularly brilliant in the play nor in the directing. Nothing to justify its 3 hours. i do not understand the raving reviews.

This is a marvellous play. My partner and I were sitting in the Grand Circle and found it hard to hear some of the actors. Judging by the loud laughter from the stalls and dress circle the funny lines were reaching them whereas comments from people around us indicated that they had the same problem. Such a shame as tickets were expensive and we felt we missed many good moments in an excellent production. Please pass this comment on as it is important you should know this.
