Angels In America, Parts 1 and 2: 1980s New York. Reagan, greed and AIDS.
A tale of America in two parts, starring Denise Gough and Nathan Lane. Marianne
Elliott directs this Tony Kushner classic.
Oslo: How a pair of Norwegian diplomats brokered a handshake between
Israel and Palestine in Washington in 1993. Bartlett Sher directs this Broadway
transfer of a play by J.T. Rogers.
Jane Eyre: Poverty, injustice and betrayal.
Bronte's classic heroine triumphs in a new version devised by the company. A
return of the 2015 hit production.
Network: TV newscaster Howard is a failure, until his on-screen meltdown
revives his career. Lee Hall adapts the Paddy Chayefsky film for Ivo van Hoe to
Pinocchio: Yep, a new version of the Disney movie about the inflammable
boy who skips off to Pleasure Island with an insect in tow. Give a little
whistle... Martin Lowe adapts, John Tiffany directs.
Angels In America, Parts 1 and 2: Part 1 (Seen at the afternoon
performance on 12th July 2017). Three decades after AIDS was recognised, this
stylish revival with a DNA / interlocking circles (pick your own metaphor) set
by Ian MacNeil links lives and contrasts the "Straight Acting Gay," "Married
Gay," "Out and Proud Gay" and all points in between... just as all of them are
heading for annihilation (unless the First Lady can get you to onto the AZT
experimental drug program). Tension builds in a way that physically sickens the
entire audience as we can see the menace and can do nothing to warn - nor
comfort - a single victim. Marianne Elliott's conveyor belt interpretation of
Tony Kushner's text is unforgiving and utterly, utterly compelling. Nathan
Lane's brash lawyer, Denise Gough as a crazed yet lucid Mormon housewife,
Russell Tovey her husband, Susan Brown (neat performance) the mother-in-law, and
couple Louis (James McArdle) and Prior (Andrew Garfield) - with a superb
supporting team, make part 1 a black hole of pain that traps the audience. The
monkey will see Part 2 later on, and can't wait. If you can get seats, go!
Oslo: Not available.
Jane Eyre: (From the 2015 run). Not available. Planks and ladders and
ensemble playing make this 3 and a quarter hours fly, according to professional
reviewers. Multiple voices deliver internal monologues for Madeleine Worrall's
deeply studied Jane, Felix Hayes is equally praised for his emotional range as
Rochester, and Laura Elphinstone for hers as Helen, Adèle and St John Rivers.
Director Cookson gets plaudits for the constant physical movement and also
keeping the story moving in the adaptation - now a single evening rather than
the original two parts of the previous outside London production. One certainly
for Bronte fans, but should also pick up a lot more theatre goers as well, for
simply being an effective evening of story-telling meeting theatricality.
Network: Not yet available.
Pinocchio: Not yet available.
