Nuit and loiskent,
programmes are £3. I'll scan mine and add it to this post in a bit.
You can also pick up the flyer too. It would be a lovely souvenir to get your programme signed. fingers crossed.

Been thinking about it some more and I am glad he played Steven. He really conveyed the emotional fragility of the character and his body language and reactions to the other characters were heartbreaking in a couple of scenes, ( you really want to give his character a hug, unlike Andrew, who you want to slap upside the head at times).
I am biased in that I love this play and its themes. I think it is beautifully written and I was happy to see it realised so well. The set and the lighting are excellent and

.

I loved the performances but am reserving judgement on Mrs Shaw until a second viewing. Will have to read the play again too.

I am sorry if the report is a bit dry - I'm a Londoner so too cool for school and all that,
Spoiler


On a completely shallow note - Orlando looks mighty fine in brown .

I am hoping they do record this and I am checking the arts shows to see if they cover it because it would be lovely to share here another aspect of this interesting young man's work.

Thanks Catz for posting your review. I'm glad to hear he did well but I've been wondering something that no one's mentioned, I probably already know the answer but how was the applause at the end of the play? Did he get a standing ovation? What was his reaction at the end when it was done and people were applauding? Again thanks for sharing your experience.

There are some videos of Orlando leaving the theater at ka-bloom. They are fan videos so I won't post them here.

Babyjane,
the cast took their bows together - twice.
First bow Orlando was to my right in the line up, the second bow Orlando was central in the line up.
No individual curtain calls. After they left the stage for the second time the lights went up.
Applause was full and a lot of ladies were standing but I wasn't really concentrating on what others were up to.

Hiya - that was me!

I'm bringing that bit of my post over, since you've mentioned it but got some of the details switched round:

Quote:
In the interval I was talking to the couple sitting behind me - actually I got chatting to the lady in the queue for the loo, when she asked me if I'd have seen the play if Orlando wasn't in it - and it turns out that they were theatre producers, there to see Dearbhla Molloy because they're thinking about her for a role in a play they're putting on outside the west end. They said Orlando was a good actor - and they were not fans, not there to see him - the guy had never even heard of him. He actually started to say 'actually he'd be good as [character in play they're putting on]' and she had to tell him 'No, we can't cast him' . The lady commented that it was lovely to see so many young women in the theatre - just goes to show what having someone like Orlando in the cast can do for a play.

[ETA: the play they are putting on is called 'Doubt' by John Patrick Shanley, which recently won a Tony award and is being made into a film starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep]
I'm sure he is going to get better and better as the run goes on - I can't wait to see the play again!

Kathryn.

Well .. as a newbie here i try my best to catch up with all the postings here in this thread ...
Sorry, if this is allready has been written ,
but does anyone of you noticed, that Orlando lookes very stressed and tired on the pictures ?
He changed a lot during the making of PotC: DMC and AWE ...
It was very exhausting for him, thatīs for sure !
But when you see him now, well ... i am worried about him ...and a lot, to be honest ...

He really need a break ... poor one !!

I was wondering, how easy it is to get from the theatre to where mr bloom comes out of the theatre from? im assuming the closer to the doors you are, the easier itd be anyways, but im 4 rows back from teh stage (EEEEP!!) and i don't wanna miss the oppertunity! especially as its my birthday the day after, i have an excuse haha! would the bowing etc be worth missing just to get a chance to see him up close? and in anyones opinion will there be less people on the 11th of august than there are for the first lot?


so many questions, sorry! just wondering from people who ahve been.... :)

Ellietrix, the stage door is directly to the right of the theatre as you come out. Unfortunately that does make it quite difficult for the security gaurds to control the crowd waiting to see Orlando, or organise a single file for autographs. Everyone just walks out and stands there. They do their level best to keep all the fans on the pavement, and not blocking the road, but I'm afraid both times I was there it was a scrum.

You can try to jump up and leave while everyone is applauding - but don't forget the theatre staff have to get the door open for you. And it is rather rude to leave during the curtain call.

To be honest, the best thing to do (if you can) is go back the night after you've seen the show, with your programme, and wait outside before the play finishes - say 9pm/9.30pm - so that you're right at the front by the stage door. That's what we did friday night, and we got autographs and to speak to him (he called me darling!!!).

I don't know what the crowd will be like on the 11th.

Sighhhhhh...

Thanks for the review! Sadly this is about as close as I will get to seeing Orlando in this play (unless they decide to film it for posterity...cross everything and hope like mad, folks!!), so I do appreciate it.

Well, I'm only in London on the night I go see the play so I don't think I'll make it to the stage door "on time"

(and I definitely don't want to be rude and leave during the curtain call )

*Sigh*

No problem really - I just didn't want to be the start of one of those 'chinese whispers' style rumours that snowballs out of all recognition...Plus I remembered the name of the play, and since I was editing my post at ka-bloom thought I might as well re-post it here.

Hmm, well in that case my best advice would be to stick close to the theatre, and see if you can worm your way through the crowd to the front. Against the wall next to the corner is actually the best spot - Orlando started from there, the times I was there - if you can get within two people of there you'll get pretty good view. People are pretty good at passing programmes forward to be signed, too.

Did anybody see "This Morning" on ITV today? I read that Tim Healy was on it talking about the play. It would be interesting to know what his thoughts were too.

I'm glad to hear such wonderful things about Orlando's performance ( I wasn't expecting to hear anything less. Am I biased? Possibly. )

Thank you, Kathryn and erendira. To hear this tickles me.


As far as the issue of the Yorkshire accent, I'm not really that knowledgeable about such things, but I'm sure if there's room for improvement, he'll definitely rise to the occasion.

Thanks also for the info on the layout of the theatre, Catz. I also like the fact that you describe the theatre as "small enough to give a really intimate atmosphere". I think those are the best types of theatres.

I've read the play, so I know it will be emotional. I don't think I'll be wrong for bringing Kleenex just in case.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Orlando's performance for myself. It's going to be a hard wait, but I know without a doubt it will be worth it.

Is there any chance that the play may be extended? I had received an email from one of the marketing associates before and she said to keep an eye on the website, in that if the show goes well after opening, the booking might be extended.

I don't know how the theatre works in London, but wondered if they set a time, is that it, no matter how successful it is?

I read a few fan reviews that were negative, complete opposite of what I read so far. I don't know if I can post the review here. I'll link to the journal since it's public, the mods can remove if not allowed. [link removed, sorry] I hope the critics don't feel the same as these people, if so he's going to get slaughtered
