Lynn Redgrave offers a stellar performance in the role of Constance's mother. Her dramatic qualities and facial expressions bring about laughs and build on Burton's exuberance.
The diaglogue is a bit brisk at times - especially given the slight accents and formal sentence structures. So I'm sure I missed out on some clever banter. I think it's worth seeing again.
In terms of seating, try to sit close enough to the stage to catch facial expressions - although most are strong enough to be seen from a distance. In addition, the performance is mostly geared toward the left.
