Ratings and Reviews

Nice idea but...


I like the idea of this app, but it feels like an app that replaces a few web pages. Would be great if we could buy a digital copy of a show, pay to view online or see videos of the actors in rehearsal.

Perhaps the next version could not only tell me that tickets are not available in my city, but suggest the nearest location. Just as useful would be a simple list of locations. I couldn't find out if RSC are even showing at cinemas in my country let alone town.

Lifelong and loyal friend of the RSC, I am hopeful this technology can help an expat enjoy the rsc productions even when abroad.

Brilliant use of technology to support an amazing production


Downloaded this whilst attending the screened performance on 22nd July. Slick, informative and high quality - as we have come to expect from the RSC.

I look forward to the next one which I guess will be for Othello.
