All I have been told about the show by the press officer is that it is a mime – naturally, I was expecting actors in black costume doing….er… mime.
It is actually a compact version of a jukebox musical, with performers lip synching to snippets from well known films and pop songs the entire show. The result is a slapstick comedy with a very loose plot of no significance.
Right from the beginning I was struggling to see the appeal of the show, with six all-equally-annoying characters with their stupid, brash not-that-funny jokes. Just as you start to enjoy the song they are singing, they will switch to another. Or play series of quotes from different films so fast that all I am thinking is ‘huh??’
It may work well as a clever skit, but a whole hour of this have been a pure torture.
