REVIEW: Carmen 1808, Union Theatre

Phil Willmott’s production based on Bizet’s beloved opera has plenty of passion and Spanish flair to make for a highly engaging experience. 

It is always interesting to see what the Union theatre can do with its cosy space and for this production of Carmen 1808, the audience really feel involved with the unfolding events thanks to Adam Haigh’s lively choreography and the authentic looking set design by Justin Williams and Jonny Rust, sweeping the audience back to Spain and the  Dos de Mayo Uprising of 1808 effectively. 482 more words

Review - Lucky Stiff - Union Theatre

While death and comedy seem to have little in common, there have been more than a few occasions where the presence of a corpse has livened up (see what I did there?) a work of fiction. 522 more words
