This award winning show, which I was lucky enough to see last month at the New London Theatre, surely cannot fail to be anything but a great success in the US – especially with interest in the new Speilberg film to be released at the end of the year. A production is also opening in Toronto in 2012.
Nick Hytner used the occasion to make a plea against the principal of cuts to the arts, pointing out that theatrical excellence was something the Brits were recognised for worldwide.
I apologise that this link probably won't work outside the UK http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-13090816 but reviews are appearing online and more video footage will doubtless follow.
