Age Recommendation: 14+
Sensitive and intelligent production of Michael John LaChiusa's idiosyncratic but often hauntingly beautiful musical
To find a production as good as this one with singer/actors of this calibre in a pub theatre (with very comfortable seating) on the outskirts of South London is a joy
Amazing voices and engrossing music for a well-polished production
The music is the real star of the show, played by a splendid small orchestra under the direction of Jordan Li-Smith
