George - Bill Irwin
Honey - Mireille Enos

at the Apollo during the last week of it's run

I struggled to get a seat and had to reluctantly settle for the second row which would normally have been too close.

Happily in this theatre it was tolerable and the performances were so vital that I had not room to think about discomfort.

Bill Irwin was absolutely outstanding. I was full of admiriation for Kathleen Turner. She was totally without ego as she bounced her body around the stage. It was a magnificent performance from everyone. The set was great - it was a wonderful night out.
