I was also there last night, and this was by far the best I've seen of the show. :D Everyone was giving it their all, and did such an amazing job. The atmosphere was great with lots of applause and cheering, and with the big standing ovation at the end. Was also fun to see all of the little changes that have been added since the last time I saw the show.
Highlights:
- Cory making Reece laugh by attacking the sofa, and Reece trying his best not to laugh... and failing.
- Franz randomly telling Leo he had "girls' legs."
- the set breaking during Springtime for Hitler causing everyone on stage to start laughing like mad.
- the bit where Leo is on top of Max trying to get the books and how it went slightly beyond the whole "give it to me" "no!"-thing.
- how emotional "'Til Him" was.
And lots, lots more.

Haven't had such a good night in ages, and it's such a shame that the show is closing, but it certainly went out (of London) with a bang!

To those of you who were at the matinee, what kind of stuff did they add or change?

God, it did go a bit beyond didn't it?! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Also when Ulla flung her leg right over Reece's shoulder after "When You've Got It..." and he just dropped to the floor-I've not seen that before, but then I've not seen it every night....so I dunno. Reece's reaction was hilarious though.

Cory "Talk about chewing the scenery!"

I thought "Betrayed" was just AMAZING as well, when I've seen it it's been good but....ahh how I love Cory :D

Found some really, really fab news: Reece will be doing the last two weeks of the Producers tour in Cardiff... together with Peter Kay and of course Cory English. :D

I heard tickets have already been selling fast due to Peter coming back into the show, but this is something I wouldn't want to miss!

"PETER KAY will perform at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff, in the new Mel Brooks musical, The Producers. KAY will share the role of Roger Debris with STEPHEN WELLER. Weller will play the role from Tuesday 27 November – Saturday 1 December whilst Kay will play the role from Monday 3 – Saturday 8 December. They are joined on stage by CORY ENGLISH who will star as Max Bialystock and REECE SHEARSMITH as Leo Bloom. The cast also includes EMMA-JAYNE APPLEYARD as Ulla, ALEX GIANNINI as Franz Liebkind and ROBIN SEBASTIAN as Carmen Ghia. "

"THE PRODUCERS will show from 27 November to 8 December. Tickets range from £15 to £37.50. To book your tickets, contact the Wales Millennium Centre ticket and information office on 08700 40 2000 or visit: www.wmc.org.uk"

Yeah me too, it would be great to see Reece in the producers again, without husband in tow!

Oh shit I've just realised I'll be to pregnant to fly! I'm cursed

Will have to check out the train
