As always the Olivier theatre is an excellent venue, plenty of leg room and lots of bars,restaurants etc to use before or after the show. As I am starting with the positives I will add the set design is excellent. However this turgid, slow farce perhaps could have been saved by John Lithgow in the lead but the understudy was not able to carry the lead role. Two other main actors were also not present making the whole experience rather flat and disappointing. When we arrived to find out the 3 actors were being replaced we asked to change our tickets but we were refused. I feel the £153 I paid for 4 tickets was not justified and we should have been given a discount.
