Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)
“Constantly swerving... a sly examination of gender politics and both theatrical and erotic role-play... Charged and provocative.”
Venus in Fur
“Thoroughly enjoyable if somewhat silly period melodrama... A Victorian music hall in East London is utilised to the creepy full.”
Hammer House of Horror Live
“Waste Land for the 21st century it isn’t... Monotonous, semi-poeticised claptrap without humour and characterisation.”
“Fillets the original for many of its best gags, while the song-and-dance routines amplify the spirit of the beast.”
“Sharp is always watchable... The pace drags. There’s insufficient sense of context... Best wait, all told, for the next revival.”
Most amazing piece of theatre I've ever seen, so powerful. I was crying my head off by the end. Gave me a feeling I've never felt before by the end and I still can't work out what it was but what I do know is it was magical. Loved it.
The cast were brilliant and witty, and left the audience in stitches with their well delivered and sharp banter.
