The lady who wrote was on breakfast tv yesterday. They asked if her daughter would be going to see it and she said no, she was too busy but she might bring her grandchildren to see it in October. The lady was quite elderly and I think the presenters felt as sorry for her as I did, they even said they would lend her some of their children to take.
We went today. It's fab. Tiger not scary at all - he dances and gets the audience on his side as soon as he comes in - and everyone in it really good. The details are great: as we sat down dd looked at the stage and said "look, there's Sophie's kitchen". They've even got Sophie's tights right!
If you're in the stalls, the cast come down the side of the seats and say hello to everyone before they go on stage (the human cast, not the tiger that is!). I think it's so little ones don't get freaked out by the show starting. I thought it was a nice touch.
