Richard Griffiths as always gives a great performance and I felt he brought complexeties to the character of Dysart that Richard Burton never did in the film version, Daniel Radcliffe was outstanding in his role as Alan Strang, it's amazing how talented this young man has become, he may have started rather wooden in the first couple of Harry Potter films but anyone who saw 'The Goblet of Fire' would have seen just how much he has improved but even taking that into account I was stunned as to just how good he was.
The interpretation of the horses and all the riding scenes were incredible to watch.
The rest of the company were equally good although I felt Jenny Agutter was not quite there yet.
Well produced and well cast, I would advise anyone wanting to book tickets to do so soon as being a limited run it won't be long until it is sold out.

It was electric. Radcliffe is astonishing in that as a film actor he has the stage technique to speak clearly and unmiked in a 1500-seat three-tier West End theatre, and either he has natural stage talent or took Thea Shorrock's direction intravenously because he's wholly convincing as Alan Strang and in the masturbatory climax to the first act, or in the ballet in which he blinds the horses he simply owned the stage.
Afterwards you may ask yourself why a paean to Laing's discredited psychiatric theorising is really deserving of a revival, but as a vehicle to exorcise the ghost of Harry Potter from the corpus delicti of Daniel Radcliffe, I can't think of a better excuse for dragging it down from the shelf for 16 weeks. And I bet it goes to Broadway too.
