Review: Girl on the Train 20 November 2019 by Visit Blackpool VisitBlackpool attended the opening night of The Girl On The Train at the Blackpool Winter Gardens on Tuesday evening. If you have not read the book or seen the film, hang in there as the story does unfold and draws you into a world of thrilling twists and turns. Central character Rachel Watson, played fantastically by Samantha Womack, takes you on what started as a voyeuristic train journey and turns into a mysterious plot of intrigue and deception. It was refreshing to see a play on the large Opera House stage, which is used to hosting large-scale musical productions. It definitely held its own in this large space with the gliding set changing regularly keeping pace with the storyline throughout. The Girl On A Train is at the Blackpool Winter Gardens until Saturday 23rd November, so book your tickets NOW at https://www.wintergardensblackpool.co.uk/whats-on/the-girl-on-the-train.
