A Very Very Very Dark Matter is an interesting play giving the viewer a different view on a couple writers, namely, Charles Dickens and Hans Christian Anderson.
This was the first time I had the chance to see Jim Broadbent on stage and he did not disappoint at all, a wonderful actor who held the attention most of the time when he was on stage.
The play was very funny and the audience laughed a lot, even though some of the jokes were simple they still gave the audience a proper laugh.
I initially thought that the play would be good mainly for kids but after watching the play I would say that a slightly older audience will appreciate the jokes and message in the play, I feel a younger audience may miss some of the jokes. Though there were a couple of serious messages throughout the play it worked well as a 2 part play performed straight through without an interval.
If you want to see a slightly different play in a modern venue then please give it chance. As with many things, go in open-minded.
The Bridge Theatre is a beautiful new theatre that is very hip. I was sat in the Stalls section and had a clear view and most seats in this area seemed to, even the seat around the stalls appeared to have a clear view. Relatively comfortable seat. The cafe and bar upstairs seemed quite popular as it is a place you could go to hang out or have a meeting even if one was not seeing a show in the venue. The staff were very polite and helpful.
