It is a little cracker. Eileen Atkins a treat, Michael Gambon excellent. The direction v good using a narrow stage fully. I think it cheated the rules in that yes, they held scripts and it had sound effects but Eileen Atkins was not really reading her part, nor were the others much. And acted, she certainly did. It would be nice to have on an audio or to see it on the telly.
Beckett amazing. Not a word wasted or out of place.
Seats a total pain in buttocks and knees. You can't put your feet down and hoicking them up risks kneeing the person next you which is ok if you are very good friends, otherwise not. This was row B facing. So if this is the usual format for this venue then remember to ask for front row or side on. The place was packed to the gills.
I've been a few times and the seating has always been the same. Row B are the most uncomfortable in London - I think I'd prefer standing if I had a wall to lean against. Why they can't sort it is a complete mystery - surely a few planks or even boxes would do it?
But I'm disappointed you didn't talk your way into better seats, Lynette. Weren't there any Young People you could intimidate?

On a sidenote, just before Gambon's entrance, does he get in character by closing his eyes and seeming in another world, or did I catch him having a nap mid-show? If it's how he gets in character, it works. If it's him having a nap, I wish I could act like that when I wake up.
