I saw the very first performance last week and said then that Philadelphia, Here I Come at the Donmar could only get better and better. And it seems that I was right as the critics have lapped it up.
From the five reviews gathered by What's On Stage, after yesterday's press night, it collected two five star reviews with the rest being four stars.
Libby Purves in The Times said: "Rendered with immaculate delicacy, Lyndsey Turner’s production was for me the most moving Donmar evening since King Lear in 2010."
It is certainly my favourite Donmar production this year, just narrowly pipping The Physicists, and I may even see if I can bag another ticket just to see how the actors are relaxing into the run.
