The first performance of Aidan Turner’s latest project, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, was Saturday night and seems to have gone very well. I’ve seen many good “reviews”. I’ll post some quotes below. I did read that Aidan had a “giggle moment” in the middle of the show but “made a good recovery”. I’ve read good comments on all of the cast members. They recieved a standing ovation at the end of show.
There is one photo that was shared on twitter of the curtain call with “blood stained” cast, however, I’m not going to share because there is no photography allowed during the performance. I believe the person who posted it, has taken it down.
All in all.. it sounds like it was a wonderful evening. Below are two accounts of the night with some photos.

Un soirée Londonienne parfaite! Une comédie très noire autour de la mort… d’un chat! 🐱 J’ai rarement autant ri au théâtre, #TheLieutenantOfInishmore est absolument génial! Et le plaisir et la chance de revoir mon acteur préféré, Mr #AidanTurner toujours aussi adorable!
Translation: A perfect London evening! A very dark comedy about death … a cat! I rarely laugh so much at the theater, #TheLieutenantOfInishmore is absolutely great! And the pleasure and the chance to see my favorite actor, Mr #AidanTurner always so adorable!

Brilliant preview performance of The Lieutenant of Inishmore. All the cast were excellent but #AidanTurner gave a truly standout performance. Definitely a “must see” play this summer.
