I'm seeing Part One tonight and Part Two Sunday night.
I recall people saying the text has had at least some revisions for Broadway. Were they anything substantial? I ask in the event I like the play and want to buy the script, which makes me question whether a revised version will be published later on.
I'd been looking forward to this play for weeks, and after seeing it last night I am of two minds about it. As I expected, Matthew Warchus and his Matilda/Groundhog Day design team have created a striking physical and environmental production.

I'll go for books and CDs that look interesting, I might get discount frames from Triton Gallery, and I'll get things I think friends would like.
