USER (02Nov06): Bamboozled by Beelzebub and mixed my Mephistopheles mindless metaphors!
USER (02Nov06): Got to agree with the previous posts - Waste of an evening. The scene where Faustus is invisible and plays tricks on the Pope is the most dreadful piece of confusing political correctness I can remember. We played "what was YOUR favourite technical failure?". With so many to choose from, mine was slightly won by the back end of the cardboard rocket getting stuck and spending the rest of the play sticking out of the Arch. Dredful stuff.
USER (01Nov06): Oh dear, the worst show I have ever seen... I feel sorry for whoever payed for this drivel.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!!
USER (31Oct06): It's bad! so so bad! Believe me I now know exactly what Hell feels like. In fairness the warning signs were there. The director apologised in advance for any mistakes, explaining that any swearing would be either him or the co-director. He lied. Most expletives came from the critic in the fourth row.
I woke up the morning after wondering whether it really happened. Were the good and bad angels really 118-118 men? (yes). Did they really have a bunch of guys in red leotards singing "We built this city on rock and roll" to represent hell? (yes). When the clock showing the time Faustus has left started to speed up an audile sigh of relief come from the audience. Seriously, if you sell your soul to avoid seeing this you're making the right choice.
