Happy Days starring Juliet Stevenson was brilliant and kept the audience with her throughout. If you are in the gallery be aware of the double seats that rise up like theatre seats, these need some coordination when you have late comers at the end of the row.

Charming venue with a very lively busy bat

Last month, I went to see Happy Days starring Juliet Stevenson.Completely blew me away! Juliet Stevenson is simply brilliant as Winnie: compelling and convincing. Her comic timing is perfect bringing all the light relief necessary to a long, existential monologue.The Young Vic staff were very pleasant and the food and drink available was of high quality.

I see a lot of theatre - several times each month, but the Young Vic production of A View from the Bridge is one of the most emotional experiences i have ever had. The story is loaded with tensions which although originally set in the 1950s are just as relevent today.

The performances, all of them, are simply outstanding and the characters are completely credible and invade your mind to the point that you identify so closely with them that, certainly in my case, you find parallels in your own life and loved ones.

The stage area and the way it is used mean that almost every seat feels like a front row. There is no interval in the two hour production and i can appreciate why, because an interruption would spoil the progressive build-up of tension that leads to a climax that leaves the audience trembling - or in my case tearful.

I really enjoy the Young Vic - its clever use of its theatre space (so different for every production) its pleasant and friendly staff, its trendy bar and cafe - but most of all its challenging productions, and this ranks as one of its very best.

We went to see Happy Days starring Juliet Stevenson. She is absolutely mesmerizing in the role and there was not a peep in the house throughout the performance. We came away with lots to discuss it was a very clever piece. The venue itself is a great space - a lovely big bar and outside bar on the ground floor and terrace on the first floor. The seats are the bench type, which can be annoying if the person next to you wants to take up too much space. However the layout of the theatre is good with great views from all sides. On the way in there was an annoying moment whereby the security man was asking people in the queue their name so he could tell the assistant to provide their tickets. Although he was trying to help it just resulted in people queue jumping so perhaps he should just let the ticket staff get on with their job. On that note, make sure to arrive well in time as there was a fair queue waiting for pre-booked tickets when we got there.
