I was told this morning that the show will now close on that date but will reopen in September.
Guess it must be a prior booking on one of the sides.

As for the award, it must be in the bag surely?

Great to hear this show is doing so well - in my Top 3 shows of 2010.

I wish the show and Tracie was up for awards in the musical categories rather than as a play because the latter has such strong competition, especially from Clybourne Park (play) and Nancy Carroll (actress) and I wonder if she might come away empty handed which would be a terrible shame for such a great performance in a brilliant play

Do you really think the play is as good as her performance? Not sure I do.
Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!

I'm always late to the party. I'v e just got back from seeing this tonight. Tracie Bennett is amazing. I think she had half of the audience in tears by the end.

The play itself is good, but i just cant picture anyone but Tracie in ther lead. I wanna see it again as soon as possible

My sister works on weekends, so I would only be able to go in the week, and I need to know train times,

What time does the 7:30 show come out?

They'd better announce these dates soon, if it doesn't come anywhere near me, I'll have to book for the West End production.

I'm even later to this one.

Wonderful to have an almost full theatre for a midweek matinee.
The performances were excellent, wish they'd do something with mickeys hair as I doubt anyone beyond the first couple of rows can see his face.

I wasn't blown away, it didn't pack the punch that Piaf did for me.

Hmmmmm. So maybe I should try and catch this on tour and see Betty Blue Eyes when I'm down in London in a couple of weeks.

(first visit to the West End this year!)
