Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour

Spring Awakening

Spring Awakening

✭✭✭✩✩ Stirring:

Moby Alpha

Moby Alpha

✭✭✭✩✩ Skilful sci-fi:
Well thought out and clever, this adaptation of Moby-Dick set in space by Seattle-based duo Charles has an individual visual style, based on a clever use of low-level technology.

✭✭✭✩✩ Fascinating but uneven:
Boasting impressive music and dance, Asian Music Circuit’s Umrao – The Noble Courtesan is a production with deficiencies in many areas, but is thoroughly successful in others.

Lanark

✭✭✭✭✩ The unstageable, staged:
A world of hugely entertaining possibilities is on display in Lanark. The co-production between the Citizens Theatre and the International Festival has all of the excitement and weight of a capital-letter Theatre Event.
