REVIEW – Angels in America Part Two: Perestroika. National Theatre (Lyttelton), London. April 2017.

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.

REVIEW – Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches. National Theatre (Lyttelton), London. April 2017.

Whoa, what a cast. Andrew Garfield, Russell Tovey, Denise Gough, Nathan Lane.

Tony Kushner’s piece is an epic, and we mean EPIC, story of love, AIDS, city life, fate, religion and being gay in 1980s America.

We couldn’t wait to see this and have been counting down the days since we booked. Well, it’s finally here and you can see what we thought in our video review.

Part 2 – Perestroika, coming soon!

 

REVIEW – Ugly Lies The Bone, National Theatre (Lyttelton), London. March 2017.

The National went all out on this piece about Virtual Reality helping with pain and rehabilitation with an interactive exhibition using some of the technology in the show.

We got hands-on with that!

Great cast potential with this one, including Kate Fleetwood, Ralf Little and Kris Marshall. So, how was the text and production?

 

REVIEW – Hedda Gabler, National Theatre (Lyttelton). February 2017.

Ivo Van Hove has been riding high since his stunning production of A View From The Bridge, which won a plethora of Oliviers just a couple of years ago.

Here he tackled Ibsen in a new translation by Patrick Marber. His success meant he drew a fantastic cast including Ruth Wilson (The Affair) and Rafe Spall.

Hedda is arguably one of the most iconic and challenging female roles in theatre – so how did Ruth do?

We get to the bottom of things in our review.
