The shows I will be seeing over the next week (well, day ticketing Curious Incident so *fingers crossed* for that one).
All of these shows were brilliant. Had a fantastic week in London (although my feet are still not over it).
After Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (which is wonderful, fun and really makes you feel like a kid) the lovely Richard (currently playing Mr Bucket) took me and Claire (theatremagpie) on a backstage tour. I honestly felt like I was 5 years old (all three of us were like children!). Actually being allowed onto the set was brilliant, I can genuinely say I have been in the chocolate factory! Claire has pictures.
There was only 5 of us watching The Devil & Stepashka which was a real shame because it was an absolutely wonderful show. Got to have a really interesting chat with the creative team afterwards.
Ghost Stories was brilliant, really want to go back. Also, nearly gave the girl at the end of our row a heart attack. Unintentionally, but it was funny.
The new cast of Curious Incident are pretty awesome. Saw the alternate Christopher, Abram Rooney (his first act was good but his second act was outstanding) so plan on going back soon to see Graham Butler.
Let The Right One In is a beautiful production. Rebecca Benson and Martin Quinn really work brilliantly together. There are some incredibly well realised moments.
The Crucible is long. Its really good with a really strong cast but I felt every minute of the 3 1/2 hours run time. Maybe if you can afford the more expensive seats it doesn’t feel quite so long. I really enjoyed it though and it was nice to finally see it on stage.
Wonderland was brilliant. Funny, moving and loud. Glad they did the live stream so more people got to see it and I got to watch it again.Source: jimee1987
