It’s tricky to figure out exactly what I want to say about ‘Academy of Risk’. On the face of it there’s much to like about this piece of theatre. Certain elements are crafted exceptionally well but there’s something missing at the core that lets it down sufficiently to prevent it from being further up my list of favourite shows.
I was forewarned by a friend that ‘Tension Square’ might be a bit of tough ride, emotionally. They were proved right.
What would it be like if you took the basic story of A Midsummer Night’s Dream but replaced the four main protagonists with beloved storybook characters? ‘The Storybook Musical’ sets out to answer this question that somehow no one thought to ask before. The result is a fun fifty minutes of whimsical, musical humour.
