Norman Conquers Broadway
I love the New York artwork for this production.

The Old Vic production of Alan Ayckbourn's 'The Norman Conquests' has just this week opened to some truly fantastic reviews from the US press.
The production is playing at the unique Circle In The Square Theatre that lends itself perfectly to the Old Vic staging 'in the round'.
Its always great to see a British production open well on Broadway.
With these reviews lets hope its success is top off with a few Tony awards.


How the Old Vic looks as a 'theatre in the round'.

I love the Circle in the Square - one of my fav theatres in New York. I was tempted to go see this on my forthcoming trip - but, much as I enjoy a good play, it lost out to a bunch of musicals.

Everything 'works' there doesn't it.

Spelling Bee was awesome there. And I just love the space - it makes a fairly big house seem very intimate.

What are you referring to as "the crock upstairs"?

That would be Wicked. The Gershwin sits atop the Circle.

Oh, I love Wicked! And I love the Gershwin. The Gershwin was actually where I saw my first ever show on Broadway (back in 1979 when it was still the Uris) - "Sweeney Todd".
