THE GRINNING MAN (musical)
NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 12 OR THE EASILY OFFENDED. CONTAINS
STRONG LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL REFERENCES.
Ends 14th April
A blind girl loves a man with a deformed smile. A musical with puppets,
based on the Victor Hugo novel.
Not available. Strong stuff, in every sense, is the professional reviewers'
opinions. One found the whole thing complicated, with tedious music and
unrelentingly dark and dull. The majority found the opposite. Long, for sure,
but rewards coming from the cast, puppetry and emotion, with more than a few
memorable numbers thrown in. Louis Maskell in the leading role is widely
praised, with Julian Bleach as Court Jester also noted by many for a darkly
funny performance. If the ending is too quick to try and tie up too many loose
ends, no matter, it seemed to work for the majority, with mainly 4 star reviews.
One for those seeking a little difference this season, it seems to the monkey.
