It is too dark, well at least from the londing setting. It was ok, but everything felt closed in.

What is darker about the stage show? And what is Mary's "dark side"?

You have successfully peaked my curiosity!

She's a lot darker in the novel too. Or so I heard.

This show is amazing. I saw it in it's pre-West End stint in Bristol. What a piece of theatre! I hoope it's as good in America as it was over here!


I just hope they keep the English and Cockney accents! :D They would ruin the whole show if they did it with American accents :evil:


I hope they stay true to the accents as well. Though even if they don't, I'm still quite excited to see it.

I'm going in October!!! A friend of mine is in the ensemble, as well as understudying Mary. I am so excited because she is one of those truly nice people, who truly deserves it. I doubt we're going to see her perform Mary, because it will be so soon after opening, but you never know! So, regardless of the show itself, I am excited for my friend and that kind of overshadows everything...:lol:

Hello everyone.

If anyone has seen/is seeing the show this week or even next week can you please just let me know who was on as Mary? As Rebecca Lock was on for the last two weeks because Scarlett was ill so just wondering if she's back!

Thanks in advance :mrgreen:
