Don't know, I went to get a ticket tonight and luckily they had a return, unluckily they wanted 97 for the ticket, so I walked.

He certainly is excellent and a magnetic stage presence, as one has come to expect from Spacey. I've written a full review on my blog if anyone is interested. However, as good as he was, 97 is an utterly absurd amount for this show.

Saw the original on Broadway with Henry Fonda. It was taped and was out on dvd for awhile. No idea if it is still in print.

Talk about ridiculous prices - how about $ 165 US dollars for a revival of The Elephant Man? I am passing on that one. If I cannot get a show on TDF or other theater clubs or get obstructed view seats, my wife and I simply do not go.

I heard about Elephant Man ticket prices being high, ouch, but this only works if you can sell tickets at those inflated prices, with no names in the cast and with Hugh Jackman in The River and Nathan Lane and Mattew Broderick in It's Only Fair Play, so think this one will be on TKT's sinner than later, like all Broadway Dramas unless they are stunt casted.

I went to the box office of the Old Vic this afternoon at 4:45 after 1984 at the Playhouse, 1 ticket left for the later 9pm performance for an eye watering 107, I declined the offer, but as there was a performance at 6pm I decided to wait in the returns queue, I was second in the queue, a couple of returns came out for 90, I and the bloke in front of me, knocked these back, so the tickets went further back in the queue, Ethel say waiting pays off 2 tickets for 60 came out, it would be rude not to accept this offer.

Great play. Funny in places, Kevin Spacey I would like to think he is in lead contender fot an Olivier, but gather he is not eligible?

My apologies, I was mistaken!

I was also at the 6pm performance this evening POL, why do you think he wouldn't be eligible for Best Actor Olivier?

You made it from Miss Saigon to Clarence Darrow in one piece, how dud you do it? Where was you sitting?

See you enjoyed Clarence Darrow more than Miss Saigon in the end?

Didn't think Kevin Spacey would be eligible for an Olivier had he wouldn't of completed 30 performances.

Thought you meant Spacey wasn't eligible for the Olivier as Mark Strong already had that in the bag

Yes POL, just about made it from the Prince Edward to the Old Vic on time - thanks to the Northern Line!

Absolutely adored this play! He's simply my favourite actor, doesn't get better than that. Shame the script doesn't seem to be that readily available online (at a reasonable price anyway).

Miss Saigon is great, but it has some flaws which left me disappointed. Mainly pointless changes, Hugh Maynard butchering Bui Doi and the complete non-acting of Alastair Brammer. Briones is everything I wanted and more, however.
