Good morning lovely people.
Its theatre day for me, off to Edinburgh I go (well, at 9am anyway). Really looking forward to this one, but hell, I'm exhausted already, hopefully coffee works some magic!
I hope you all have a fab day 😊

🆕 blog! “Theatre Review: Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon”
★★★★★

There are lots of one-man plays. There are a decent number of one-woman shows. Where are the one-girl stories? This is Rosie Day's attempt to fix that imbalance. The plot isn't particularly original (it is hard being a teenage girl!!!) but the way the story unfolds is magical. It is witty, irrever…

Romeo & Juliet theatre star suffers ‘barrage’ of online racial abuse

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2024/apr/05/romeo-juliet-theatre-star-suffers-barrage-of-online-racial-abuse

It is stunning that this is still happening. Identifying the pr*cks involved and shami g them (stocks are acceptable) might work.

@Wen The thing that gets me is that the probability that any of those racists have actually ever seen Romeo & Juliet (Westside Story doesn't count) out side of a school play is very near zero.

@Ralph058 I know. It kills me. 🤣 clearly this is mob incitement from a few.

Theatre Review: Buffy Revamped
https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2024/04/theatre-review-buffy-revamped/

The great thing about getting older is that the popular culture of your youth is repackaged and sold back to you with increasing urgency. Yes, I want that Lego set I couldn't afford as a kid. Why, of course I want to watch a reboot of Frasier! Another few Ghostbusters movies? I'm in!

Brendan Murphy has prepared a dose of 100% pure 90's nostalgia and wishes to inject it into your eyeballs. Ahhh! Go on then!

The show styles itself as all 7 seasons, told in 70 minutes, from Spike's perspective. And that's just what we get. Murphy does a commendable job recreating Spike's "authentic" cockernee accent, and is delightfully dappy taking on the mantle of the other characters.

There is so much to love about this performance. The script is written by someone who obviously has great love for the Scooby Gang, but isn't afraid to point out the tropes and weirdness of the series. It is a loud, manic, cavalcade of energy - urged on by a cackling audience who recognise all the obscure quotes.

If you grew-up on Buffy, you'll enjoy this show.

Book tickets for the show and remember to bring a stake with you.

@blog this is relevant to my interests! The site doesn't list current dates, where did you get your tickets?

Been in Dublin for the last month and a half, working on this amazing experimental theatre piece. ‘Motherkraft’ is by Regan O’Brien, and I’ve been working on its music with some of these beautiful souls: Regan, Robbie Blake and Sharon Phelan. Playing at the Project Arts Theatre for the next few nights!

🆕 blog! “Theatre Review: Murder Trial Tonight II - Aldwych Theatre”
★★☆☆☆

Overwrought melodrama in London's most uncomfortable theatre. This show has been done countless times before. You, the audience, watch extracts from a murder trial. At the end, you vote on whether she done it or not. It feels more suited to a Channel 5 show which asks punters to text their v…

@Wen I know. Trying to get a link to the video without FB. I've asked for clean copy of marketing to be sent direct to me before, but it hasn't come through yet...
