Thank you so much for an outstanding and captivating performance, it was amazing and I loved it!
Although I’m ashamed to admit it, I got lost in the dialogue at times and applaud you all and Mr Spacey for remembering it.
The set and the use of percussion made it exciting and even more dramatic. Just breathtaking!
Once again thank you for a fantastic night. xx
