Swallows and Amazons opens with a 5-star review
Date Posted: 22/12/11
Swallows and Amazons has opened at the Vaudeville theatre and has been given a five-star rating by an impressed critic.
Charles Spencer, writing for the Telegraph, said that the production is one of "wonder and delight" and he recommended catching it by booking London theatre breaks during its West End run or on its upcoming UK tour.
"As well as the inventiveness of the staging, the show’s secret weapon is a wonderful score by Neil Hannon, best known for a memorable slew of melodic and witty pop hits under the name the Divine Comedy," he noted.
Mr Spencer added that Akiya Henry "shines particularly brightly" while playing the part of Titty, while Richard Holt was described as "splendid".
The show is running at the Vaudeville until Saturday January 14th, before it then heads to Edinburgh, Nottingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Blackpool among other venues.
