    As much as it saddens me, it’s probably time to go. They have been putting up a huge curtain at the back of the dress circle over the past couple of months and closing it complete on other performances. Tuesday night was stall seating only and it had a great atmosphere, a very young audience and easily one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. And then last night for a Friday they could only fill half of the stalls and the atmosphere and performance were very flat. They have also just announced a waiting list for the final show.
