An innuendo-laden musical, set in 1940s London with a gay love story amidst bombs dropping? Sounds right up our street.
The venue itself was a treat alone. The old railway arches underneath Waterloo station are now an amazing entertainment venue with theming, the likes you’ve never know. VERY atmospheric.
We even caught up with the LOVELY creative team and found out more about the journey Miss Nightingale had to the stage.
But was this relatively new musical break a leg or leg it?
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.
The only Tennessee Williams we really knew prior to this was A Streetcar Named Desire – which we adored at the Young Vic not too long ago.
The director of the piece, John Tiffany, is sweeping the board at the moment with his production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. No pressure then!
Legger Nathan picked up some homosexual themes in this piece, but were they there or not. We had to do some investigation to find out.
Check it out and maybe you’ll learn something too? #educationthroughtheatre
