  1. Superb. Fully deserves the standing ovations it receives. Sean Jones and Joel Benedict outstanding as the twins.

  2. Seen the show over three decades, 1989 and it impacted me then. Again as a family we went in the early 80's and saw Linda Nolan as Mrs. Johnston. Sat in centre second row and tears flowed as they did with Linda and a few cast members at the standing ovation. Saw it again last night with the family-once more second row centre and joined with Maureen's tears at the finale. Thank you all, so, so much. A masterpiece Mr. Russell, thank you, sir.
