The King's Speech @ The Wyndham's Theatre

The play claims to be 'the original play that started it all' - but I guess most people get to know about The King's Speech because of the highly acclaimed film starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush, and I'm no exception. The film's just really good and it's hard to surpass it, but the theatre version is equally good if not better, in my opinion. Some scenes are almost identical to the ones in the film, but there are more details about the war, for example, and the background of the Logues. It's interesting that the casting very much resembles that of the film, perhaps it's because it's based on real people and close likeness is important?
