|MAGICAL.......purely and simply MAGICAL. I loved every minute of it. We travelled from Yorkshire especially to see this production and it was well worth the journey.

One word to describe it: DULL!
It's like the actors were instructed to take as many breaks between words as possible, the thing goes on for ever.
The only funny part is when one of the nymphs recites her lines in an incomprehensible Polish accent. WTF?
Talking about nymphs- where did they get them from? Central casting for Fellini movies? Such a mismatched pride of bodies should not be unleashed in tight outfits on any post-dinner audience.
What is it with all the GODSPELL meets ANGELS IN AMERICA musical effects numbers? Horribly camp, irrelevant and tedious.
The actors themselves seem bored when they come on stage, there is no energy, dynamism, purpose...
This is the second disaster I have seen by Nunn of late. Talk about losing your mojo!
About a dozen seats vacated in front of me after the interval. Guess the sentiment was shared. - Bob Roberts||06 Sep 11|
