Show’s late start

IT WAS a pity that your glowing report on Derren Brown’s shows at the Futurist Theatre at the weekend omitted to mention that, on Sunday, the show started 75 minutes late, with no explanation and only the most cursory apology from Mr Brown when he eventually appeared on stage.

Furthermore, the audience was not allowed to enter the theatre until 8.30 pm, an hour after the show should have started, so several hundred of us had to stand on Foreshore Road for well over an hour on a distinctly chilly evening.
