Wow. First night is over and it went… great. Well, for us backstage it did. The odd niggle here and there, but nothing major. I am very releaved.

The performance looked good to me, but I am watching it from the wings.

Everything just came together – the stage plans, the preparation, the rehearsing of scene changes.

And the place was packed. All tickets sold.

What I don’t think many realised though was how long the show is – it starts at 7:30pm and doesn’t end until about 10:45pm. It’s a long one!
