The wait is over! Part two of our Angels in American review is here.
The piece is epic and we thought part one was a sensation. So did the concluding part live up to expectations?
There were angels, death, fights, ghosts, laughs and more. We even bumped into playwright Tony Kushner who agreed to sign our script.
With over 7 hours of performance time we certainly needed a lay down by the end.
We are both children of the 90s, so the idea of a brit-pop musical was right up our street.
We headed to The Crescent theatre, Birmingham to see what “The Girl from Mars” was all about.
We also managed to get some time with the creative team and an exclusive interview!
Some things stay with you. They simmer and stew. This is one of those things.
It was so reflective that we actually changed our minds about it.
See what we mean in the vid!
The setting for this one was special. The old railway arches underneath Waterloo station. Dripping with water, hanging stalactites and a musky smell – atmosphere was definitely not lacking in the auditorium.
Was the piece going to be eerie? Spooky? Scary? We knew NOTHING before heading in. So, come on a journey with us as we prepare for “A Haunting”.
Opera up close won an Olivier for “Best New Opera Production” a few years ago, so when we heard the production they were so acclaimed for was touring – we had to head along.
A story of a group of bohemian artists living in poverty and a contagious illness infiltrating their lives, the story kind of sounds a little familiar…….
We get around a bit, The Leggers. Not everything we see is in “The Big Smoke”.
The Birmingham REP is a fantastic place for new and touring productions. “Love” is a co-production between Birmingham REP and National Theatre.
Did we think that it was worth a trip into the “second city”?
