  • REVIEW: The Great Gatsby at Immersive LDN
    26 October 2020


    There are a few names in the world of immersive theatre that should get you excited and Immersive Everywhere is definitely one for that exclusive list. Tucked away just off of Oxford Street awaits the world of love, well-pressed suits, and bootleg liqueur; it’s the Roaring Twenties and we are invited to a party.
    Jay Gatsby’s mansion is the venue for our evening of entertainment. The central space lies in anticipation with a piano dimly lit pulling focus. Around this the audience are seated at a safe distance from each other with Mr Gatsby’s bar dominating one wall. After some welcome rule setting the party springs into life with a snappy Charleston dance number and we are introduced to Nick Carraway (James Lawrence); the man who will guide us through the evening. Lawrence handles his lengthy monologues with ease, setting the scene, giving exposition and being on hand to steady the ship. He holds our attention expertly and has a welcome air of empathy and honesty in this world full of fake niceties and bolshy pomposity. Whilst Jay Gatsby may be the name on the wall, it feels as though Craig Hamilton’s character is written as more of a facilitator and catalyst for Nick Carraway to flourish. Whilst Carraway flourishes through prose and Lawrence’s embodiment, some of the other characters and moments seem under-developed as if they haven’t had the airtime to rise to their full potential.

    Some of the audience are broken off and whisked away into secluded rooms to learn more about the guests and Mr Gatsby himself. These moments are when we as an audience really get involved in the action; intimate moments between a few of us and the characters. The story unfolds at a different pace and in a unique way for each audience member which is something familiar with any immersive show. However, as we sit in the main space and watch a tea party or listen to the band, the action is constantly distracted by sound bleeding from the various off-stage rooms. This could easily be a conscious effort on the part of director Alexander Wright, but it somewhat detracts and distracts from the action in front of you. It can be tricky enough to be heard and comprehended in a large room with an audience on all four sides, without the distraction reminiscent of ancient Greek performances.

    The show, like any good party, has live music expertly executed by the cast. Lucas Jones gives a noteworthy performance of a ballad in the second act; his unique voice resonating beautifully in the space. There were a few other solemn moments that the cast harnessed beautifully and contrasted well against the bombast of twenties music remixes.

    The show’s designer, Casey Jay Andrews (and associate designer Emily Bestow), have created an authentic world populated by both performers and audiences. Everything from the drink’s menu to the giant painting and every single detail in between feels thoroughly considered and purposeful. In the break-out spaces the design really comes to life with intricacies that could be easily missed but go towards creating this world we inhabit for the evening. Contrast this authentic design with Rachel Sampley’s more ‘theatrical’ lighting design, and a sound design (by Phil Grainger and associate designer Lara Gallagher) that mixes theatrics and authenticity as brilliantly as it mixes music across ages, and you get a concoction that feels both honest and performative.

    Something that we should expect to see a lot more of in the coming months is a mention of safety measures that are being implemented as theatres and performances begin to finally reopen. Immersive LDN has all the expected measures from face masks and temperature checks to table service and distanced seating. Theatre during a pandemic is no easy feat, so a massive thank you to the production team and front of house team that kept us safe and feeling good for the evening. Also, huge congratulations to the cast, crew and creative team for handling social distancing within the show so effortlessly. 

    The recurring issue with all immersive performances is that I leave hungry for more and with questions racing around my mind: what did I miss? Where didn’t I get to go? These questions come with the territory, but The Great Gatsby helped quench my thirst for immersive theatre and still left me hankering for more. With more venues set to open safely in the coming months, it’s looking like those theatre hankerings may, thankfully, be pandered to soon!

  • REVIEW: Lone Flyer at the Watermill, Newbury
    26 October 2020

    The Watermill continues its indoor reopening season with a revival of its 2001 play about the life and death of the amazing Amy Johnson, the first women to fly from Croydon to Darwin Australia in 19 days in May 1930. The venue continues to smoothly and efficiently handle the Covid pandemic restrictions artfully wrapping two thirds of its seating capacity in the theatre and allocating a table to each ticket purchase group for use before the show and at the interval. It creates a welcoming and safe feeling environment even if face coverings during the performances is a necessary irritation. However this production does not quite hit the extraordinary heights of the first play, Bloodshot, despite the excellent efforts of the Director Lucy Betts and the fine cast of Hannah Edwards as Amy and Benedict Salter as the rest of the thirty characters!

    The challenge is the structure of Ade Morris's play which intersperses a chronological retelling of the aviator's life story from her birth in Hull in 1903 to her death in 1941 mainly through exposition from Amy, with flash forwards to her final flight as a member of the World War II Air Transport Auxillary, and interactions with her husband Jim Mollison (from 1932 to 1938). At times it feels like an animated version of Wikipedia with some very detailed explanations of landings on her flights and then skipping over details of her health problems and very short episodic interactions with key characters in her life. It means we never really get sucked into the drama and emotions of her fascinating inspiring life while admiring her tenacity, bravery and single minded determination. 

    Lucy Betts direction does its best with the script with a very carefully plotted props plan so that a single prop or costume adjustment is used to set a scene or create a character as the fast moving story switches from location to location and changes in period. The lighting design by Harry Armytage cleverly assists creating the shimmering reflection of the sea or the gloomy clouds and fog across the bleak black stage. I think the storytelling would have been assisted by some projected Pathe news style context setting to reduce the longer monologues of explanation and some projected maps of her flights. As in the Watermill Summer outdoor shows they make a virtue of social distancing with some good visuals gags when lighting a cigarette or dancing. 

    Hannah Edwards is excellent throughout as Amy from her childhood memories of Zeppelins over the Humber, her school and university recollections and her first steps towards becoming a pilot and female ground engineer. She paints the picture of a bright, ambitious, independent woman who desperately desires a husband even though she believes that "love makes you dependant" and believes that angels "look after you until it's your time". She engages the audience with her wide eyed innocence and her contrasting fear on her fateful flight and in the end we are moved by her final plight.

    Benedict Salter has the challenging task of playing everyone else in her life including her Fishmonger supportive Father, long time but distant admirer the Swiss Franz , her first flying instructor Valentine Baker, the engineer Jack Humphrey, her husband and fellow pilot Scottish Jim Mollison, her sponsor Lord Wakefield and even her female university friend as well as a host of other minor characters. He also plays a haunting cello to accompany the scenes throughout her final flight. Each appearance is short and sweet but he effectively distinguishes each with a simple change of costume and accent. 

    It is an extraordinary story that is worth telling and her naive approach to flying to Darwin in 1930 (via Vienna, Turkey, Baghdad, Singapore) after a longest prior flight of just 150 miles is verging on madness but in the context of the period is a phenomenal achievement that earned her place in aviation history. She set a standard that others have followed and the Watermill itself is showing the rest of the Theatre industry how to produce in these trying circumstances. I am amazed it was not eligible for a grant from the £1.5billion of Government funding and is dependent on its Full House appeal to cover the deficits from the wrapped seats but like Amy Johnson's long flight they deserve our admiration and support and I hope will continue to set standards for years to come.

    Sasha Regan’s All-Male Pirates Of Penzance will come to the Palace Theatre London for one night only on Sunday 13 December 2020.

    Sasha Regan and her All-male Company brings The Pirates Of Penzance, one of W. S. Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan’s best-known classic operettas, to the home of D’Oyly Carte opera on Sunday 13th December for one night. Originally known as The Royal English Opera House, the Palace Theatre was founded by Richard D’Oyly Carte in 1891 and opened with Sir Arthur Sullivan’s Ivanhoe.

    The merry band of pirates and their winsome lasses sail into the Palace Theatre with their inventive new take on Gilbert & Sullivan’s classic operetta.  Featuring a shipshape cast singing songs including: “I am a Pirate King”; “Oh, happy day, with joyous glee” and “A rollicking band of pirates we”, they are sure to raise the roof off the Palace Theatre!

    Expect plenty of onboard japes from the swashbuckling crew who are braving the high seas with rum and hand-sanitisers to bring you a socially distanced, Covid-secure show. A joyous and much-needed escape for families and friends.

    The production was first staged at The Union Theatre in the heart of Southwark over a decade ago where it was a runaway success winning Best Off-West End Production at The WhatsOnStage Awards in 2009.  Pirates transferred to Wilton’s Music Hall for a 6-week run and on to The Rose Theatre, Kingston before the All-male Company set sail on a tour of Australia culminating in a month-long run at Cate Blanchett’s prestigious Sydney Theatre. There was a subsequent UK Tour in 2015 and another critically acclaimed run at Wilton’s Music Hall last year.

    During this troubling time of Covid-19 Sasha Regan’s company is bringing a well-known operetta from its humble beginnings at the Union Theatre over a decade ago to the original home of the Savoy operas – a remarkable feat.  The Company hopes that 141 years after it ran at New York’s Fifth Avenue Theatre in 1879, followed by its London début the following year at Opera Comique and later at the Savoy Theatre, that audiences of all ages will fall in love with this beautifully written operetta performed in a Victorian theatre created for this work.

    The All-Male Pirates Of Penzance is directed by Sasha Regan, choreographed by Lizzi Gee, designed by Robyn Wilson-Owen, musical direction by Richard Baker, associate choreography by Lee Greenaway, lighting design by Ben Bull and casting by Adam Braha.

  • ‘I kinda thought, huh, this is a modern classic?’ – BETRAYAL – Theatre Royal Bath
    26 October 2020

    Theatre Royal Bath – until 31 October 2020

    The things I do for the actresses I love. Despite the Herculean efforts of the Pinter at the Pinter festival, I still can’t say I am Harold’s biggest fan. But the announcement of Nancy Carroll in a play, alongside Ed Bennett and Joseph Millson, in these theatre-starved times was one I found hard to resist.

    So I made the trip into the safe havens of Tier 1 from Tier 2 to see Jonathan Church’s production of Betrayal at the Theatre Royal Bath. And once again, I kinda thought ‘huh, this is a modern classic?’. With the memories of Jamie Lloyd’s fresher take still bold too, the choice to keep it firmly in the 70s didn’t click for me.

    An hour plus of a straight white man justifying his affair may suit some people but for me, it sticks in the craw a little. Here though, Church and Carroll do seem to have worked hard to create a world in which her Emma gains more agency in the affair she conducts with her husband’s best friend Jerry, in the play itself for once.

    And as the play coils backwards over the decade of infidelity, the layers of deceptions and lies are well played by the trio, it’s just that I always find it a little hard to really care for these characters or invest in the passions they chase. Joshua Carr’s lighting does great work on Alex Eales’ revolving set though.

  • Book review: Time To Act – Simon Annand
    26 October 2020
    Simon Annand’s Time To Act is a beautiful book of photos capturing actors in the minutes before they go on stage

    Tackling the constraints of the pandemic in its own way, Simon Annand’s fantastic new book of photos Time To Act has launched a virtual exhibition of some of the photographs which has now been extended to until Christmas. It’s an ingenious way of sharing some of the hundreds of images from the book and should surely whet the appetite for either just buying it now or putting on your list for Santa to collect soon.

    Time to Act is a sneak peak into the backstage lives of actors on the West End. Split into four section – Half Hour Call, 15 Minute Call, 5 Minute Call and Curtain Up – Annand’s unique access provides a fascinating documentation of the preparation it takes to appear live on stage and how those methods compare and contrast across a wide range of performers.

    From vocal warm-ups (Michelle Fairley’s primal scream) to stretches in the auditorium (Joshua Silver reaching out to the Globe), deliberate solitude (Jake Gyllenhaal and his dog) or cosy chats with castmates (Daniel Craig and David Oyelowo’s obvious chemistry) or even just Lesley Manville in her rollers puffing away on a fag, there’s a gorgeous unaffectedness here, a real sense that we’re getting a rare sight of these actors at their most unguarded, vulnerable even, with a lack of vanity that is most refreshing.

    There’s real skill in how the book is put together as well, the echoes of shared practice skittering from theatre to theatre, the same but different in each dressing room. And Annand’s way with a mirror is just astonishingly good, pretty much every photo that involves a mirror is a transcendent piece of art – the Sophie Okonedo and Juliette Binoche double-spread feels like it is photographing four different women, Olivia Williams, Kate Fleetwood and Lia Williams’ portraits just take your breath away, Glenn Close and Paapa Essiedu’s too. Oh and Josette Simon’s as well, it really is that kind of book – treasures on every page and there’s a whole lotta pages!

    On a personal level, the timescale of the book also works beautifully for me as it focuses heavily on the last 10 years, which is pretty much the time I have been blogging. So it is great to be reminded of so many shows that I had committed to the dusty recesses of my creaky memory – Helen Mirren’s Phèdre, Toby Jones in The Painter at the Arcola, the glorious Flare Path with Sheridan Smith and Sienna Miller, the list just goes on and on.

    And finally, whilst we wait for theatre to be allowed to rebound in whatever shape Covid-19 and government inaction allows, Time to Act serves as a gorgeous and timely reminder of the richness of the world of theatre as was and will be again.

  • Olivier Awards 2020 – Full Winners List
    26 October 2020

    By Douglas Mayo

    The winners of the Olivier Awards 2020 have been announced in a special ceremony hosted by Jason Manford at the London Palladium. & Juliet and Dear Evan Hansen were the big winners on the night. Sam Tutty in Dear Evan Hansen

    The Olivier Awards 2020 were held last night in a special ceremony that was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The awards were hosted by Jason Manford at the London Palladium and featured performances from Miriam Teak Lee, Sharon D Clarke and Sam Tutty.

    New musicals, & Juliet and Dear Evan Hansen were awarded three awards each. Andrew Scott won Best New Actor for his performance in Present Laughter at the Old Vic commenting that humour is “something that’s helped us all survive in the past couple of months during this really arduous time”.

    Whilst the awards highlighted the new talents in the British theatre, it also saw wins by two of our most consistent and admired artists. Sharon D Clarke’s award for Best Actress for her performance in Death Of A Salesman joins her awards for previous wins as Supporting Actress in 2014 and Best Actress in a Musical in 2019 for Caroline, Or Change. In her acceptance speech, Sharon commented “We must know our worth in this industry, and what our incredible industry brings not only to the coffers but to the soul of our nation. Keep the faith people. We will be back.”

    The night saw Sir Matthew Bourne break shatter Olivier Awards records with his win for Mary Poppins (co-awarded with Stephen Mear). The award made Sir Matthew the most successful individual in the history of the awards.

    Sir Ian McKellen was celebrated with a special award (his seventh Olivier win) for this 80th Birthday Tour which saw him tour theatres across the UK raising much-needed funds for theatres across the country.

    Julian Bird, the executive producer of the Olivier Awards and chief executive of the Society of London Theatre, said: “This is not how we had originally planned to celebrate this year’s outstanding Olivier nominees, but like so many others we have adapted to these challenging times. I am thrilled that we have been able to safely pull together this programme that will hopefully engage and inspire audiences at home while reminding them of the talent and vibrancy within our theatre industry.”

    The presentation was hosted by Jason Manford and honoured Ian McKellen with his seventh Olivier Award for his 8othBirthday tour, as well as lyricist Don Black, who received his Special Award from Lord Lloyd Webber and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, who gave an impassioned speech about the importance and resilience of theatre.

    It was a night where both youth and experience triumphed, with many winning their first Olivier Award, while choreographer Matthew Bourne won his ninth, crowning him the individual with the most Olivier Awards. Bourne won Best Theatre Choreographer alongside Stephen Mear for Mary Poppins, while Bob Crowley won his third Best Set Design Olivier for the musical.

    Best Actress went to Sharon D. Clarke for her performance in the Young Vic’s Death Of A Salesman. In 2020, the actress became the first person to be nominated in all four performing categories and she has now won in three of them. The production also received further accolades, with Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell winning the Sir Peter Hall Best Director Award.

    Present Laughter at The Old Vic won two awards, with Andrew Scott winning Best Actor and Indira Varma winning Best Supporting Actress, her first Olivier Award.

    The Jamie Lloyd Company won Cunard Best Revival for its production of Cyrano De Bergerac, directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring James McAvoy at the Playhouse Theatre.

    Brand new musicals Dear Evan Hansen and & Juliet each took home three awards. Dear Evan Hansen won the Mastercard Best New Musical Award and the composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, together with orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, won Best Original Score or New Orchestrations.

    This was a year to celebrate new talent, with Best Actor in a Musical going to Sam Tutty in his first leading role and Miriam-Teak Lee winning Best Actress in a Musical for & Juliet. She was joined by castmates Cassidy Janson, who won Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical, and David Bedella, who received his third Olivier Award, winning Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical.

    Female theatre makers were at the forefront of the awards, with the all-female creative team behind Emilia winning three awards. The Noel Coward Award for Best Entertainment or Comedy Play went to playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, with Joanna Scotcher winning Best Costume Design and Emma Laxton winning for Best Sound Design.

    Legendary lighting designer Paule Constable won her fifth award for lighting design for the National Theatre’s production of The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. Emma Reeves and Theresa Heskins collected the new award for Best Family Show for The Worst Witch.

    Sonia Friedman Productions won three awards: Leopoldstadt by Tom Stoppard won American Airlines Best New Play and Best Supporting Actor went to Leopoldstadt’s Adrian Scarborough, while Fiddler On The Roof won Magic Radio Best Musical Revival.

    Richard Gadd’s debut play Baby Reindeer triumphed for the Bush Theatre in the Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre category.

    In the opera and dance categories, Best New Dance Production went to Ingoma by Mthuthuzeli November for Ballet Black, and Best New Opera Production to Billy Budd â€“ both at the Royal Opera House. Sara Baras won Outstanding Achievement in Dance for her choreography and performance in Ballet Flamenco – Sombras at Sadler’s Wells and the Children’s Ensemble of Noye’s Fludde at Theatre Royal Stratford East won Outstanding Achievement in Opera.

    23 October 2020

    The 30th Annual Tony Awards were held at the Shubert Theatre, current home of A Chorus Line. As opposed to the usual June ceremonies we are used to, the ceremony took place in April 18, 1976 and broadcast by ABC television. The show featured six hosts, including Richard Burton and Jane Fonda It should be noted that while revivals of My Fair Lady and Hello, Dolly! (featuring Pearl Bailey) ran this season, there was no category for Best Revival or Best Revival of a Musical.

    Heading into the April ceremony, the original productions of A Chorus Line and Chicago were virtually tied for nominations, with 12 and 11 respectively. Also nominated for Best Musical were Stephen Sondheim’s Pacific Overtures and a revue called Bubbling Brown Sugar. But the night went to A Chorus Line, winning 9 Awards, The awards for Set and Costume Designer going to Pacific Overtures and Chicago going home empty handed.
