This is theatre worth applauding
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR (Guardian)
I have just returned home from one of the best nights of theatre I’ve seen on this Island in 10 years.
Anyone else who had the pleasure of taking in tonight’s (Friday) performance of Evita by ACT knows exactly what I’m talking about. From the moment the first actor arrived on stage to the final curtain two and a half hours later, I was taken in by the entire production. Every element, from staging to costumes to the orchestra, was absolutely bang on. Not to mention the totally convincing performances from every single cast member.
I hope each of the 100-plus people involved in this production takes another bow when they read this. You certainly deserve it. Three cheers for community theatre. We have many, many talented storytellers amongst us.
