Finally I saw “Oppenheimer” in London! And I’m so pleased I had the chance to see it four times in eight days and to have met some elements of the terrific cast after the show! Will write longer report soon.
And I’m so pleased I met Oliver, too! He seems a nice young man and he was so kind in signing my programme, like some of the other actors (although I didn’t mention my site to him, fearing to seem cheeky, I just praised the wonderful show and his performance…).
I’m agree with this review and the comment on Oliver:
[…] Oliver Johnstone makes the teenage genius, Lomanitz, a real treat – and the scene where he returns from the front line and begs Oppenheimer for assistance in securing employment is heart-breaking. […]
and I agree on the other actors Stephen Collins praised.
I loved all the characters, all had both moving and funny scenes, but those who will stay in my heart will be: R.J.Oppenheimer, Jean, the Serbers, Lomanitz, Wilson, Teller and Little Boy played my favorite performers (John Heffernan, Catherine Steadman, Jamie Wilkes, Sandy Foster – Oliver – Jack Holden, Ben Allen and Barney Fitzpatrick). I’ll continue to follow their careers.
But the others worth a mention:
