Also, does anyone know what kind of seats those tickets are? Should I just try to get a day seat instead? The fact that they're £25 instead of £5 doesn't matter terribly to me, if they're good seats and available - I'd rather have a good seat than the cheaper deal. But how available are they - unpredictable? - and what time of day is the best to show up and ask?
(My days are entirely flexible, except for Tuesday nights.)
So many questions, sorry. xD

Gosh, thanks. That's useful information. I'll plan on arriving by 7 then.

In other words you just picked up a ticket which you could have booked in advance at the same price :-)
No - the only day release tickets are the £5 16-25 ones, which are in row J of the upper circle (marked everywhere as £20 seats).

Kerry was Matilda - very headstrong and dead-pan. Very good actress even if it did feel some of the time as though she just wanted to rush through the lines! I think all the Matildas need to have a bit more rehearsal on the final Acrobat bit, when they have to tell the story in time with the projections - it's a tough gig and it always seems to go slightly wrong!
Verity was covering Mrs Wormwood, essentially playing a tempered down version of Josie - which is fine though it felt slightly unbalanced against Paul's Mr W. I suspect though that Peter's Mr W would fit fine with her portrayal, would be interesting to see the two of them together.
General word about kids - top form ensemble work.

The cast of this production are absolutely stunning, and can't fault them at all. This is the first show that i have seen, that I actually looked forward to seeing. Usually its like a busman's holiday for me. ! This however, I looked forward to seeing. Helps I'm friends with Josie.
My ONLY criticism of this entire production was actually the sound. The operator (whom i led to believe was the no2) was clipping lines everywhere. I think most people would never notice, but anyone who really listens out for the technical and sound side, would spotted it. Probably every other line was clipped. !
I mentioned it to a usher in the foyer. . . her response. . . "Thats a normal complaint sir". . . . . !!!!!
My friends saw it a week later - same issue.
I have to say this is the only fault. I can always look past a mis-focused light, or a bit of paint thats been scratched or gouged, as some thing can't be repaired for the following day and take time and planning. But live mixing - this can ruin a show for some people. Luckily it didn't for me, but certainly left me very annoyed.
BUT - a wonderful production.

Sound is one technical department I try to not get worked up about, the fact it is a technical aspect which involves on-the-fly skill means I tend to be slightly more forgiving about the occasional slip-up. Have seen (or should that be heard) some awful sound ops before though.
