Best Twelfth Night Ever by Ros
I doubt I will ever see another Twelfth Night as good as this. The acting is superb and everyone works together to create a real team effort. You can almost believe you have gone back in time.
Best 12th Night ever! by Boo
Ignore all the guff about Shakespeare being difficult and unfunny. Just watch the action as the actors tell the story. Listen and the story unfolds and is hilarious. The all male cast makes the tale more believable and the humour more sturdy. The staging is beautiful and the music perfect. The whole audience was engaged with the play and we were totally in the charge of the actors. All six of our very different party (aged from 15 to 50+) were enchanted. As frequent theatre goers and a fairly critical bunch we can honestly say it was the best 12th Night, the best shakespeare comedy we have any of us ever seen and the best night in a west end theatre in years.

A must. Go and see it now
Fabulous and Unforgettable! by Katarina
The only feeling of regret you have by the end of the performance is that it’s over. Then you have a strong wish to re-read the original text. And finally you just want to see it again!
Book your tickets elsewhere! by James
Could not make it to the show becaue of travel difficulties - no trains! Tried to ask agent to resell tickets. They refused! Total washout. Now flying back to Singapore very dissatisfied.
fantastic evening by Susan
Go early and watch the actors dressing and being made up on stage!
Wonderful Shakespearian Theatre Experience by Gerry
The show was different with an all male cast and the actors playing women were exceptional, particularly Mark Rylance as Olivia. Of these particular roles, Johny Flynn as Viola had the most difficult task of being a man, playing a woman playing a man: this he did with aplomb, managing it with great skill and understanding. The comic aspects were very well done, giving the audience both belly chuckles and piquantly hilarious moments when sexual double-meanings emerged. Malvolio was cast in a different light to past experience, which may be a reflection on Stephen Fry tending to play Stephen Fry: despite this, it did not detract from the overall great enjoyment and the insights as to the difference between being male and being female.
Don't miss this! by Dom
Poised right on the edge of comedy (as it's an all male cast), this 3 hour play shot by. Every actor was a star - not just Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry (although they were outstanding). Have been telling all my friends to get themselves along to see it - a true highlight of my theatregoing year!
