Has anyone seen it ? Did you like it ? I’m going to be in London in November and thinking about seeing it
Saw a preview last night. It is very, very, very odd. I felt and heard a lot of discontent on my way out. (It is pretty short at 1:45 with no interval.)Jim Broadbent is quite wonderful as H.C. Andersen and his scenes with Phil Daniels' Charles Dickens are hilarious.If I could I'd see it again, not so much because I loved it but because it is intriguing and a little flummoxing.
I saw discouraging comments over on theatreboard as well. Although at least one person thought a matinee price was ok -
I've been avoiding details to avoid spoilers in case I go, but I get the impression this is one of those shows where it's not going to suit everyone, and you are far more likely to enjoy it if you are braced for something weird and a challenge! I suspect there is a danger that people will go hoping to see something jolly from that nice Mr Broadbent and reality is something a bit darker.
They've cut 35 minutes???
I've never hated anything as much as I hated this vile, disgusting play.

If you can see the stage at all you've done poorly. I've never hated a show more in my 30 years of going to the theatre.
I saw this last week and I loved it! Its is seriously hilarious.
