Zach Braff's All New People at Duke of York Theatre

officiallondontheatre.co.uk/london-shows/…

I was lucky enough to catch this dark comedy before it hits the west end. Thoroughly enjoyed the show, though I note that the age suitability was 16+ in Glasgow, yet in London is given as general. Thought it might have been the other way around given the popularity of coarse expletives in Glasgow!

The play is funny and bittersweet, but also has dark themes and adult content that might offend some. You have been warned. Go see it!

(previews from 22nd feb)

Just back from seeing All New People. BRILLIANTLY written by Zach Braff. It is a bit on the dark side and there is strong language, but none the less is is well written and the other members of the cast deliver too. Zach signed autographs and took time to have his picture taken with fans. Go see it, 10/10

As it states in front of the theatre: "Just sit back and laugh". Incredibly smart play with brilliant actors- worth every penny!

I've read the reviews, which are bad, however am not put off, as going Good Friday (son doesn't know and a big Scrubs enthusiast).

Did you go to the stage door for the autographs Coz53S? How long did you have to wait?

Many thanks.

The reviews are quite mixed, and opinions somewhat polarised but its perhaps worth noting that Charles Spencer of the Telegraph gave a very favourable review and 4 stars.

Yes thank you, I also read another review (can't remember who) of a well-received female critic, and it was favourable.

I took the "stuff it, I've booked and it's going to be great to see live theatre anyway" stance.

Hi all,

we saw All New People night before last. It was very very funny! Well worth the effort and the cost of the tix.
