Also, any info on the day seats? (good/bad view, long/short queue in the morming, etc). Thanks
I'm just home from seeing this wonderful production again. I'm sure the other actor performing on Mondays and Tuesdays is good but I would still say if you are only going to go once, then go and see Luke Treadaway. He really is superb in this role. I found the play just as emotional and moving as at the National.
There are some tweaks. I don't want to spoil anything but I will say that the walls are used in this instead of the floor for certain things and there are projections on the walls as well as the floor which mean that even from the front row you don't miss anything significant. There are some new quirks too which I very much enjoyed, making the transition to the new space work very well.
I benefitted from my friend queuing for day seats this morning, which are the front row for £12. I'd say this is well worth it for a second visit, as although the stage is high, you don't miss out on anything and it's wonderful to be so close to such brilliant performances. I'll definitely try and day seat again for this, as I have a friend who would love it.
