I saw the Spitfire Solo on Saturday night. My teenage daughter was with me and on the way home said - "I've never seen a good one person show before. I mean, he kept me interested. He was flying around that stage like a crazy person and I loved the scenes about his wife - so sweet."
The actor showed such range! Wow! He was funny, vulnerable, angry, proud...and stepped from one age to other with ease. When you thin about how difficult some of those transitions were - emotionally, vocally and physcially - it was quite impressive. His voice carried quite well - I understood every word and I don't hear very well.
The script was tender, human and informative. I love history so seeing the intimacy of one life of a British hero was very, very, very satisfying.
