The hands down show stopper of Luminato… smart, irreverent, challenging and brilliantly directed and acted.
Bold and insightful theatre
Breath-taking in performance, structure and style
Life is tragedy seen in close-up, comedy in the long shot, Charlie Chaplin said; Peggy Pickit allows us to see both at once.

Strong direction… muscular, musical staging
