So anyone that knows me knows that I love both The Donmar Warehouse and Tom Hiddleston. For a retrospective on Tom Hiddleston’s reading of Tennessee Williams at the Criterion Theatre, head over to my Tumblr, where I used to do long bulky review posts! Anyway, I’ve seen a few things at the little Donmar – a theatre that is little by size and not in name! When they announced that Coriolanus was coming, starring Tom Hiddleston and Mark Gatiss, the world of ‘fandom’ collectively wet their pants in excitement. And everyone prepared for battle.
See, the Donmar is a teeny tiny theatre. And the popularity of Tom and Mark is beyond their size, so we all knew it would be painful. And it was. I really wanted opening night tickets, because one of the things I like to do is get a review up first for shows I know fangirls are chomping at the bit for information on. And I was lucky! In a strategic battle plan organised with my friends, we successfully procured tickets mostly for what we wanted. Sadly, I failed to get tickets for closing night, but you take what you can get!
And guys, never fear, we can battle it out again when the Barclaycard £10 front row deal comes along!
One of the things I was most interested in was how far and wide reaching it is. People are travelling from all over for this play. So I want to find out who is coming to the show and from where! Leave me a comment below and tell me where you’re travelling from to see Coriolanus!
See you at the show!
