West End Review, July 2014: New work special. Mark Shenton hosts a final session in the current format, in which regular panellists Kate Bassett, David Benedict and Matt Wolf are joined for one contribution by theatrevoice editor Dominic Cavendish to assess Great Britain (National Theatre), Bakersfield Mist (Duchess Theatre) and Mr Burns (Almeida). Recorded in Borough, London 15 July 2014.

I saw Great Britain on a normal night,  full, eager… the response was interesting – there were lots of patches where the audience didn’t respond and the response at the end was warm, but not ecstatic.
