This is our holiday theatre treat this year, tickets booked in November following recommendation by someone who had seen previews, and before the professional reviews appeared. The professional reviews have been poor, and I know have put some people off. There were reports of half-empty shows, and I speculate that worried National Theatre management might have arranged for Pratchett himself to write that positive article he wrote for the Daily Telegraph.

I expect that it will be enjoyable, spectacular and interesting. I also expect to find that I disagree with the reviews, though I don't yet know what the basis for that disagreement will turn out to be. The Lord of the Rings Stage Show was widely slated by mainstream reviewers that (in my-not-so-humble opinion, and with only one exception: take a bow, reviewer for the Daily Mail) completely missed the point of the show. When Pullman's Dark Materials were produced at the National reviews were respectful, but again missed many of the key points made by the story.

More about this afterwards, I hope. Now off for a snack lunch before the show.
