The 39-year-old actor had one problem with the way things are going so far: all the slings and arrows recording and leaks of his performance!
Cumberbatch was so bothered by all the recording that he's seen that he decided to address his fans directly outside of the London theater saying:
"I can see red lights in the auditorium, and it may not be any of you here that did that, but it's blindingly obvious. It's mortifying, and there's nothing less supportive or enjoyable as an actor being on stage experiencing that."
Although he did stay fairly lighthearted about it all and expressed his hopes that people spread the good word about his show before and after his performance by saying:
"I don't use social media and I'd really appreciate it if you did tweet, blog, hashtag the shit out of this one for me."
Ch-ch-check out his full request in the video (below) and let us know if you think the Sherlock star makes a good point!
