Young Vic Over Christmas
Posted 02 October 2012 - 09:28 AM
I normally really like the YV Christmas show
And isn't it busiest time for a theatre?
Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

It is a little strange that they could extend Three Sisters isn't it ? Is it usual to have gaps in the programming like that ? The Changeling wasn't really much good, doubt it will have enough mass appeal to extend, whatever novelty it had came from the staging in a the smaller space, it will look pretty anaemic in the main house.

Unfortunately- the Young Vic audiences are amongst the worst in London.
As for The Changeling, I enjoyed its craziness and novelty, but as a production it didn't work- it made a mess of the play. The best thing about it was Jessica Raine, who I see is not in the Main House revival. However Sinead Matthews and Harry Hadden Paton are which annoys me greatly, as I have no desire to see that production again!

The Changeling is a mess of a play. Most productions are edited versions, some attempting to tidy the mess.

Thanks for clearing that all up then, the Young Vic programming and productions are beyond criticism.
At least in the main house Changeling the audience won't be overwhelmed by the sickly sweet smell of 20th century jelly in a production which is purporting to be set sometime prior to the creation of artificial sweeteners.
