The review as I read it says no such thing!

The review is not from The Scotsman but The Evening News. Your headline would suggest a bad review but it is actually a 5 star review.
Obvioulsy you have your own agenda on this show but to use what is actually a rave review to support your argument (as evidenced in your subject line) makes you look slightly desperate.

Sorry! Not my title. I expected the posting to be added to the earlier 'Chess' tour postings under this title. My intention was to draw attention to the excellent 5 star review in the Scotsman's evening paper.

Apologies for my remarks - I though you had added the title.

Just been to see Chess tonight and liked it a lot. Some great visuals, an expensive production, the actor-muso made sense, some very good central performance (a couple of thrilling voices). Sound (though the Playhouse is tricky) a bit harsh and lost a lot of the lyrics.

I've got tickets for the Chess tour in Nottingham, and my only knowledge of the musical comes from the recent production with Idina Menzel. Should I expect something completely different?
