I'm coming to London in mid-June for a short theatre trip. I have one more slot and I'm torn between Embers (starring Jeremy Irons) and Mike Leigh's "2000 years" which is coming back to the NT? Any opinions here on which one I should choose?

(Other plays I have already scheduled are Derek Jacobi in the new John Mortimer play, Stoppard's "Rock N' Roll", Coriolanus at the Globe, Hay Fever with Judi Dench, Anthony and Cleopatra at Stratford and Sunday In the Park with George.)
"It does what a musical is supposed to do; it takes you to another world. And it gives you a little tune to carry in your head. Something to take you away from the dreary horrors of the real world. A little something for when you're feeling blue. You know?"
