Not the best thing since sliced bread but better than concept of bread itself. This show is beautiful, tragic, poetic and funny. I hope enough people go and see it so it has a further life. This show is face meltingly good. The music is gentle and always compliments the action. The person who works the visual mixing desk was unbelievably skilled to cut from one piece of action to the other. The puppeteers gave the characters life and humanity.
The fact that you see it all built in front of you makes you complicite in the story and emtionally invested in the production like it's yours somehow.
Go and see this show, go now. - B

..and when I say `problem' I mean because you wanted to watch both and not miss a moment. - CB

Beautiful, moving and charming. The only problem was trying to watch the screen and the creation of what you could see on the screen at the same time. Highly recommended to anyone wanting some real theatrical magic. - CB

The scene you refer to here "one particularly magical sequence that seems to envelop the audience as the spaceship makes its journey through the universe" was my absolute favourite bit. It was such a fantastic moment that perfectly expressed the feeling of wonder and awe that Kepler (and indeed the audience) felt as the spaceship takes off. One of the best things I have seen on stage and I am blown away by the talent of all the performers. - SM
