What a brilliant piece of theatre produced here. From the outset to the end it was brilliantly entertaining & what got me was the timing that the players displayed.Wanted to see the show in London when we were there but lost the opportunity. Glad we were able to see it last night in our home town. My children grew up with the movie & wore out the video so I had an idea of the story. Congratulations to all. & to Tim, I have been a follower for a few years now. Loved your role & voice as Judas in JCS at Rod Laver & have enjoyed your DVD from the Royal Albert Hall. You are certainly original in your craft.
Best wishes for a great season at the Princess Theatre.
