Had been looking forward to this for 2 months. Expected great show because of the cast (Stephen Fry being a big draw). But my oh my. I go to the theatre as often as I can, but with only 2 days into the New Year, i honestly believe I will struggle to see anything better in 2013. It was hard to tear your eyes when Mark Rylance sashayed his way across the stage ( tiny shuffling steps). Just amazing.

It was amazing! I especially liked the actor who played 'Lady Olivia' in the play. It had on stage seats which felt amazing! You could really feel the emotion If you sat there.... I laughed so much In the play nearly cried! I would definitely see it again!

I have seen this play 20 times at least and this was easily the best. Probably my best night at a theatre. Having stage seats added greatly to the experience. Mark Rylance has amazing presence and links with the audience so well. Chap playing Maria also excellent.

Amazing production. Thrilling and absorbing from start to finish. Had onstage seating, which felt as if we were royalty. Love Peter Hamilton Dyer as Feste the fool - Captivating and such a great voice for the part! Best Shakespeare production we've ever seen and my 16 year old daughter was very impressed. Especially with Johnny Flynn.

Brilliant performances by all made this version of the play the most enjoyable I have seen. Intricate timing, telling expresions and subtle gestures (some obviously not so subtle) took Shakespeare to a new level.
