URINETOWN - THE MUSICAL
Director: Scot Hall
Musical Director: Sam Cleaver
Choreographer: Philippa Chesham
"Theatre at its very best: a satirical musical whose tunefulness and black hilarity in no way masked the bitter sweet thematics. A revelation of both venue and talent: who would have thought that the Meteor could accommodate a show of this size or that Hamilton could so brilliantly cast its own. Only quibble: a relatively short run. Urinetown left us wanting more."
GOD OF CARNAGE
Director: Pip Smith
"Everything is spot on such that it’s hard to pick out a highlight moment, so instead I have to commend some of the more tender moments of humanity that sprinkle the play, delivered with utter earnestness by the cast. Picking up a dropped glasses case, politely talking to a relative on the phone, consoling an upset child. As much as their wilder moments, the cast and script sync up so well at these moments that when the lights drop there’s a curious moment of tranquillity, making us wonder if it’s all over.
God of Carnage is a dark comedy, a satire on civility but the cast make us care, the script makes us consider and ultimately the production revels in humanity far more than it rebukes it.
Full credit to all involved here. This really is a must see for theatre lovers."
