  1. I saw this too but the night I went some of the projections were broken – the ones on the floor seemed fine but it looks there were meant to be some on the back wall too from the photos? What did I miss? They did offer a refund or exchange which I think most people must have taken because it seemed like there were a lot more people in the queue outside than actually came into the auditorium. I guess that’s one of the benefits of being a regular theatre goer, knowing that “hard reset” and “5 minutes” aren’t things that generally go together. Didn’t really matter that much though other than looking a bit bare back there. Great show, quite ambitious but nicely staged.

    1. Yes, there were some on the back well (the manga speech bubbles, some scenery). All kinds really! When did you go? Had you read the manga before?

      1. Er, Wednesday? I think. I used to read it a few years ago, not for a long time though. Think I’m going to pick up some of the collected volumes seeing as they’re coming out on Kindle soon

        1. Ah, okay. I saw it on the Saturday just before (I think). Hope they managed to fix what wasn’t working!

          Yeah, I saw kindle versions were coming out. There’s probably too many issues to read them all anyhow… unless you’re super-dedicated I guess!
