Really well acted and definitely worth seeing. As Asperger's syndrome is being more commonly diagnosed, it will be more relevant to our lives too. I can't rate highly enough. I think the fact that it is still on in London West End, over a year...More

It was a very good show, especially if you liked the book! I wouldn’t recommend stalls seats as they are very expensive and the show doesn’t have special effects. Cheaper seats will be fine as well!

I have not read the book so didn't really know what to expect. This was a real rollercoaster of emotions, funny, tragic and heartbreaking. The tube station scene really makes you think (won't ruin it for you). Managed to get last minute tickets so got...More

We sat at the front 4 rows back and it was a great view. I'd recommend you go to the ticket offices in Trafalgar Square at 09:00 on the day you wish to see this and we got our tickets for £15.00. Good luck and enjoy
