Mitchell - Rupert Friend

Directed by Jamie Lloyd

Seen towards the end of the run at The Garrick in a wonderfully central, half-price ticket...thank you!

A non-stop, laugh-a-minute, exhilarating joy-fest. The script was great, the cast were brilliant and the audience were amazing (except the dork next to me who took 30 second to catch up). The pace was perfectly judged, firing on all cylinders with just the right amount of breathing spaces for the audience to compose themselves. Getting applause from the cast is what makes theatre a totally satisfying entertainment. I was wonderful, dahling!

I have no idea what this little video achieves. I find it irritating until we get to the little bits from the cast.
