I went to see the show yesterday at the palace theatre Westcliff , I had a great seat two rows from the stage , an aisle seat which was perfect as it felt very personal and David was very engaging , talking to the audience and making everyone feel included. He told a fascinating story of his life and career and towards the end intricately morphed into his poirot character in front of our eyes explaining how he achieved the voice , mannerisms and little quirks that endear us all to that iconic little man. Geoffrey Wansell o stage with him as his introducer and interviewer was a bonus as I am also a fan of his . David told amusing , emotive and sometimes sad stories of his life and career and I can honestly say that it was the best theatre experience I have ever had in my 55 years and Iï¿½ve seen a LOT of theatre . I did not think I could like Sir David anymore than I did , how wrong I was .
